WHAT MAKES ONE MAN OR WOMAN?
A gender-equal society would be one where the word 'gender' does not exist: where everyone can be themselves.
About:
In modern Western culture, stereotypically males and females have been defined as opposite genders. Traditional traits of masculinity, dominance and braveness are often associated with manhood. Opposite that stands passivity and sentimentality —womanhood. Femininity and masculinity are rooted in the social rather than the biological gender identity. ‘Two Spirits a/w’17’ has been strongly influenced by gender topic that was analysed in manhood, womanhood and transgender aspects. The main inspiration has risen from transgender Native American and XIX century cross dressing women that strongly questioned gender norms at that age and had major impact redefining gender perspectives. The collection translates sophisticated minimal and modern feel, that has been interpreted within oversized tailored shapes, knit and various fabric combinations.
