This is …Masculinity

'Gendered attitude, gendered relations and gendered stereotypes concerning men, masculinity and their place in society.'
Edwards 1997

Artist's statement:
"Societies view on menswear and masculinity is notorious for being very rigid. Therefore I have created a menswear collection that pushes people’s perception of masculinity.
The inspiration for my collection has sparked from a look at Rococo design, historical architecture and the modern ‘Dandy’- marrying the modern man with the history of menswear. I have used feminine fabrics and intricate detail in a tonally neutral palette, to create a new modern view of menswear which challenges people's ideas of menswear and masculinity."
