This Maxine Water's T-Shirt Is The Best Thing That Happen At NYFW: Men's
Men's Fashion Week is always a bit more of a treat for me to attend and cover compared to covering the womenswear collections. Spotting the trends and reviewing the designers' offerings are the same for both, but during NYFW: Men's I get to do some runway shopping. It's the same concept as window shopping, actively looking at storefronts and sifting through racks of clothes with no intent to buy. Runway shopping is pretty much the same. I pick out my favorite look I'd personally want to buy for myself without actually doing it because I have adult bills to pay. But, every once in a while a piece stands out so much, figuring out how to get my hands on it becomes my goal and this season, the Willy Chavarria Maxine Waters sleeveless "fighter" tee has won my heart.
At a time where folk feel comfortable making disgusting comments towards the Congresswoman, including Michael Selyem, the Deputy District Attorney of San Bernardino County, California who was quoted saying "Being a loud-mouth cunt in the ghetto you would think someone would have shot this bitch by now" in reference to Waters, Auntie Maxine doesn't bend or bow. In fact, her responses to remarker like this are why she's is indeed a fighter, "All I have to say is this: if you shoot me, you'd better shoot straight. There's nothing like a wounded animal. I am prepared to make whatever sacrifices need to be made." You could feel that fighter energy on the runway as the t-shirt made its premiere and its that reason why I too am prepared to make whatever sacrifices I need to make to get my hands on this Willy Chavarria shirt.
