By Yeo Chia Hui For the longest of time, gender was the focal point in fashion. We have fashion brands rolling out niche collections, clothing stores adopting gender-specific layout, and separate men and women fashion show. Regardless of the reason behind these decisions, gender binary clothing has been the norm and, in large part, still is. However, there has been a paradigm shift recently. Along with the rise of the gender fluid movement, the fashion industry has had a social awakening of sort when it embraced the unisex appeal.
These women were on diets to get the right shape of their body for their outfits they would wear when they went out places. Flappers became the image that represented the tremendous change in women’s lives during that time period. When America became a part of the flapper trends it spreaded like crazy. Many were getting sick and tired of not being treated fairly like the rest of the people and they wanted thing to change that. One of the first ever flappers was Zelda Fitzgerald.
She is such a huge style icon for her generation because she always dresses in exotic, beautiful, and unusual outfits. Similarly, she is a big role model and social media influencer as well. Unsurprisingly, she participated in charity events such as Fashion Against AIDS and she modeled in a Gucci ad benefiting the United Nations Children’s Fund(Washington).

It’s chic, it’s classy, and it’s stunning.
In the essay some historical facts, cultural background information were provided. I mainly focused on the influence of fashion on gender identity and vice versa. As you can see gender blur in the industry has been a subject of great importance since 1980s; and nowadays like never before.

Moreover, fashion companies do not only change the perspective of thinking, but some of them also seek to erase gender differences altogether.
In the highly emancipated and globally inter-connected that world we live in, there are as many voluble admirers as there are severe detractors for the prolific use of sexuality and nudity in expressing the image of women in fashion photography. No medium blurs the margins between creativity and insult as finely as the medium of fashion photography. The portrayal of women, with focus on every bit of their body and selves, has been at the core of fashion photography for significant decades now. Opinions range from vituperative to pure admiration at this obsessive engagement with portrayal of women. To understand this imagery today, it’s interesting to travel to yesterday to know how it began and evolved – both the celebration and objectification of women.
