Uni–Sex : Analysing Unisex and Gender Fluid Fashion Campaigns
Archived in a book, over hundred diagrams explore the components of different visual languages and examine the various ways of portraying gender fluid and unisex fashion collections from 2015. The study unveils contradictions, limitations, and potentials to establish potential blueprints for gender fluid fashion. Further explorations of the project were presented as a performance in the exhibition #TVClerici in Milan Design Week (IT) and an installation at Tent Gallery, Rotterdam (NL) ⤿2016-2017
