Unisex Fashion: Flash back to the times when you could notice a lady from a mile away because you didn’t need to see her face as the long female gown and hat made it possible to identify her.
In today’s world, do you think you would be able to notice a lady from a mile in a major city?
The fashion world has developed so much that it is gradually breaking the gap between male and female styles with the exposure of unisex fashion.
The term “unisex” came to use from the 1960s, it can be stated that unisex clothing made its first appearance in the late nineteenth century, as part of the ‘Victorian dress reform’.
It can also be stated that in the nineteenth century fashionable clothing, which originated in France, returned the supremacy of traditional feminine roles.
About Unisex Fashion
Unisex clothes are clothing that are designed without a certain gender in mind. Before now, society has dictated that men should dress in one way and women in another.
As frequently seen in schools, trousers and blue are for boys while skirts and pink are for girls. But unisex fashion has put all this aside.
However, for some it represents more than just clothing. Tanmay Saxena, the founder of London-based unisex label LaneFortyfive believes ‘it’s very hard to break the metaphorical walls and create equality in the times we live in.
I have this feeling that unisex clothing is a small but successful way to unfold a line of conversation towards a wide talk about equality’.
The men’s style editor at The Telegraph ‘Stephen Doig’ agrees that it’s a natural progression in a world where, luckily, there’s more acceptance of gender fluency.
Different major brands admit that clothes should care less about gender and pursue this believe by launching certain unisex variety.
This is actually what many believe fashion should be about, as it should be free from judgment and based on individual self-expression.
