New York Fashion Week might have just ended, but the prevalent themes of politics and protest (opens in new tab) continue with a new video featuring 81 of the industry's brightest stars.

Produced by W Magazine (opens in new tab), the video features celebrities like Diane von Furstenberg, Caroline de Maigret, Joseph Altuzarra, and Grace Coddington all cut together, declaring "I am an immigrant" in direct opposition to Trump's recent executive order banning refugees and travel from seven Muslim-majority nations (opens in new tab). It concludes with a lingering shot on von Furstenberg, who says "I am immigrant. And America was very good to me."

Watch the powerful clip below, and keep in mind that this was filmed *during* the busiest time of year for the participants. Some might say fashion exists in its own bubble, but that is, and simply cannot be, true.
