After President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were officially declared the winners of the 2020 presidential campaign, the fashion industry cheered loudly — from the streets to social media.
Late this morning, Pennsylvania was declared in favor of Biden — giving him the 270 electoral college votes needed to beat Donald Trump.
Throughout the 2020 presidential election, countless brands and influential figures in the fashion industry encouraged their American followers to vote in this historic event. Many also created their own “Vote” merchandise, from tee-shirts to face masks, while others partnered with i am voter, a nonpartisan activist organization, to bring awareness to this civic duty.
Here are some of the fashion world’s reactions as celebrations continue.
