My submission titled Genderless was inspired by gender-neutral fashion. For me, “genderless” means freedom. It has no stereotypes. I live in New York City, and I am used seeing more and more girls wearing “masculine” clothes, and boys wearing very tight ones that you would think only a girl could fit in.
In my opinion, clothes are always genderless. It is rather our culture and its norms that ascribe a gender to an item of clothing and by continually labeling it as thus reinforcing the way it is perceived. In 2018, gender no longer dictates the way people dress. Gone are the days when skirts were just for women and trousers were just for men.
I think we should all be able to wear whatever we feel most comfortable in from a physical and fashion standpoint. I have always loved wearing my boyfriend’s shirts around the house. Besides, not so long ago I got a buzz cut. Wearing clothes that initially were not meant for me and having a boy’s haircut doesn’t prevent me from being myself. In fact, that is how I chose to express myself and look to match my personality and identity.
I came across Yoa’s picture on Instagram. Her gaze in it drew my attention. It seemed masculine to me. It was radiating some undeniable force. I loved it. I reached out to her right away hoping she would get back to me. And she did. I knew exactly what kind of images I would like to make with her. I previsualized what she would wear and what makeup she would have. I shared my ideas with the rest of the team. They liked the theme of the shoot. We all agreed that Yoa had a perfect look for it.
I love working with like-minded people. The thing that we have in common is that we enjoy creating whether it’s a photograph that a photographer makes or a look that a wardrobe stylist, hairstylist, and makeup artist come up with.
