Style and fashion are on everyone's minds this time of year, as the weather shifts and fall wardrobes get pulled out or updated. People are glacing around to decide what their next style shift will look like, and some of the most stylish queer people around are visibly setting the bar high!
And in the fashion world, collections are being debuted at major Fashion weeks, projecting into Spring / Summer already, but giving us the sartorial gift to look beyond the cold months ahead, and into the bright pastels and bold motifs in our collective futures.
New York Fashion Week came and went, ending last week with a highlight for the gay, lesbian and queer community at large: Verge, an entirely queer fashion show, showcasing the broad range of queer style, models and fashion our community has. Put together by the collaborative brains of the incredible Anita Dolce Vita of dapperQ, bklyn boihood, Posture magazine, and DYDH Productions, the show saw some of the cream of queer fashion walk and showcased. And it even started with an engaged discussion about fashion representation with panelists from academic, trans media, artist and lesbian change-making backgrounds.
And while some of the models who walked in that show will be very familiar, such as the stunning Rain Dove (SEE: Rain Dove Crushing It at NY Fashion Week), others less so.
This week, London Fashion Week, known for the diversity of its designers and styles isn't especially known for the diversity of the people represented on catwalks and making the clothes. So we thought that we ought to remedy this by showcasing the people who kill it in the style game in all their varied dapper ways.
First, have you met DapperQ? The dapper-focused site features non-binary clothing and style on the regular, and put together that fashion show along with BkynBoihood - featured in this pic, and themselves a set of highly stylish queers:
