The Evolution of Gender Expression in Fashion
Presented by Nathalie Landree
This presentation will focus on how clothing and presentation determined the role of gender in history and cultures, and how it has evolved to cross barriers that were once considered taboo. I will begin with describing the apparel of different cultures across the globe and it’s histories, a native American perspective on gender expression, i.e. “two spirit” people, and the influence of cultural changes in the western world, which would cover trend-setters such as David Bowie, Boy George, Prince, and so on.
