Gender Bender

The notion of gender has shifted in this present day. People feel the need to wear what they feel like wearing. This seems to be the rule of fashion today. One prime example right now seems to be Jaden Smith. In the past he has known to wear clothes catered to women such as dresses and skirts. Recently Jaden Smith joined a new ad campaign for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 Women’s Wear Collection. The rapper/actor wears a top and skirt and leather jacket. Interesting to say the least. If an ad campaign displays a gender wearing another gender clothes it shows the shift to a gender neutral world. Do I like this shift? Honestly not. However society will continue to pattern a gender neutral world. It is the world we live in now. One more thing I can say is it will be definitely harder to explain to our kids the notion of gender. Welcome to a gender neutral world.
