Fashion has always been yielded as a feminist tool by women who stand against misogyny. Be it women clad in unisex clothing to promote gender equality or celebrities embracing crop tops and shirts with feminist’s slogan. This, however, proves that ‘Feminism in Fashion’ is not just an on and off going fashion statement, but a life style for many.
“Feminism In Fashion” in Pakistan
Shehzil Malik’s digital illustrations quoted as “Pakistan’s first feminist’s fashion line”, is a perfect example of a Pakistani woman’s take on feminism in fashion.
According to the 30 years old digital artist, “telling women to take their clothes off or to put more on” is a problem lies within our patriarchal society.
A celebrity supporting the ideologies of feminism isn’t a new thing; nonetheless, it still makes us proud. So does what Mahira Khan said in the answer of “What does feminism mean?”, in Lux Awards, 2017.
“Feminism means to stand up for the rights of women.”
Did you know this beautiful young singer, Mumina Mustehsan, is also a feminist? More power to the women!
How does Feminism impact one’s fashion choices?
Feminism has not always been all about “equal rights”. The feminist ideologies also instill the concepts of being better, confident and original in women.
What one wears shows: What they think!
Have you ever thought about why do you dress up the way you do? Did you pick your day’s outfit because you felt like it? Or has the society been manipulating your fashion choices?
Feminism tells you to “be confident and be comfortable in your own skin.” Go with your instincts and wear whatever that tiny-red-thumping-organ-inside-your-chest tells you to.
Start your day with loving the person that stares back at you in the mirror in the mornings. Love yourself and be original. Following others blindly will get you go smacking in walls only.
To all the women out there, be a fashionable feminist!
