Strictly For The Fellas: New York Fashion Week for Men Kicking-Off This Summer
While all of the fashion glory of NYFW (New York Fashion Week) has some shared components of both men and women, it’s clear that Women’s fashion is carries most of the weight. The dominance of Women’s fashion within major fashion labels is partly due to the thought of fashion being more feminine- Not true. This year, the interest in Men’s fashion seemed to be at an all time high. Capitalizing on this peak of interest, the creation of a Men’s Fashion Week here in NYC seems appropriate.
“High fashion menswear has played an integral role in the alteration of how we view clothing in relation to gender, and this interplay continues to evolve today. Young men are taking more risks in outfit choices, pairing pieces that feature feminine colors and prints with more masculine pieces like blazers and suits. In time, the way we view gender through outer appearance will warp completely.”
