This fashion designer makes “workout gear for the resistance”

“Workout gear for the resistance”: Designer Willy Chavarria takes inspiration from cholo fashion and workwear to convey progressive, political messages, tackling issues like mass incarceration and immigration reform. Wilbert Cooper met up with Chavarria in Brooklyn, New York City, to learn how he’s amplifying fashion’s impact far beyond the runway.
