From the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator:

Post-elections, the world is reeling from the possible repercussions of a president-elect that has voiced major changes in how the US will respond to immigrant populations, environmental issues and global manufacturing. Also included in all three areas is the impact on women and women’s rights moving forward in 2017 and beyond.
