This Tuesday: Refinery29 panel: fashion*gender=??

  refineryThis post is a bit late –my apologies- but I'm very excited to share this upcoming panel by Refinery29 that will look at the shifts in gender identity and how this is shifting fashion as well. Personally there's a lot of talk lately about "gender free" and "gender neutral" which to me takes all the sex appeal out of it. I think the idea of gender identity is fluid not neutral so in my opinion defining your own fashion/gender/identity should be Gender FABULOUS (I mean we're talking fashion here people) Anyways!

The official name is

Peopleswear: Discussing Fashion's Evolving Relationship With Gender

and the key players are:
