Fashion has always responded to what’s happening next. The movement that’s happening right now: genderless apparel.
In March, H&M announced the debut of their first unisex collection, a 19-piece line of oversized denim basics called Denim United.
Recently, Parisian brand Avoc, which proudly totes their offerings as gender neutral, won the prestigious ANDAM award, which granted them $129,000 to grow their business.
While gender non-conformity and gender expression are headline topics right now, the question remains for fashion, is this just a trend, or something that has a profitable future for the retail sector?
Liusal, a streetwear brand that officially launched during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, has made being genderless a core part of their brand identity. Their main reason for this was a matter of economics on their part.
