In contemporary society the ‘rules’ around clothes are often not about fashion, taste or even necessity. They demarcate difference, enforcing and reiterating societal ideas about what it is to be a man or a woman.
The implications of our clothing choices can be a liberating outlet for personal expression and self confidence but can also be a prison, constricting our physical bodies and ultimately our true selves into certain parameters of acceptability with very few finding the courage to challenge this.
Is fashion truly a means of self expression or is it just a shield?
