Clothing has always been synonymous with gender, whether it be lightweight fabric or a heavy tweed we almost instinctively know what gender is attached to that fabric and or garment… or is that what we have been lead to believe. Fashion is a human construct and humans placed a gender to the items we wear.
Once pink was a colour for boys and though 80s advertising it became connected to girls though mass-market toys sales, Barbie and Disney princesses.Growing a generation thinking that pink is only for girls.As we look into the past that thinking set can be seen for gender too. It’s time to re-define gender for the future because in the end gender is just a label. Slater explores using women wear attempting to redefine what masculinity and femininity are within the realms of editorial fashion.
