Not only in fashion but also in many other creative endeavours there has been a¬†distinct movement towards both gender fluidity and makeshift/make your own.
This¬†coupled with an aesthetic that speaks to what is conventionally considered to¬†be ‚Äúugly‚Äù is what intrigues us. The idea that one does not need to have expensive, brand name garments or to be gender-specific in one’s depictions, or even to conform to previously established notions of beauty, opens up so many more¬†avenues for self-expression. This combination lends itself seamlessly to the decoding and¬†fragmenting of previously constructed notions of what fashion and art is. It says we¬†do not need to conform to these constructs but rather we need to break down and¬†re-assemble.¬†For this editorial we wanted to look at these ideas and find expression for them¬†through the medium of fashion and photography. We asked ourselves what fashion¬†would look like in the future: how will we express ourselves in a world that has¬†moved beyond these constructs?
