Queer Style As the Next Fashion Frontier
dapperQ, the leading style website for masculine presenting women and trans* identified individuals, proposes to host a panel discussion and fashion show/presentation to showcase, discuss, and celebrate queer style. Queer style is the next frontier of fashion. From wedding suits to urban streetwear, a growing number of brands are designing gender-neutral clothing and casting androgynous models, making queer style a multi-million dollar industry on crowd funding alone. The panel will examine queer style as both a business and a form of visual activism, providing attendees knowledge about how to succeed in this growing market using approaches that are effective and culturally competent.
