hi! today I'd like to focus my blog on a theme nowadays very Fashion: Androgyny...In the 1980s, androgynous musicians - Boy George, David Bowie, and Prince - made headlines as they captured the world's fascination with sexual ambiguity. Perceived as a worldwide idol, Michael Jackson personifies androgyny with his falsetto voice and effeminate manners. Since the 1980s, Hollywood has produced movies depicting sensuous beauties - Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and Uma Thurman in Kill Bill - as intelligent, tough, and strong adversaries in leading role
Then the fashion world took advantage of androgyny, celebrating fashion designers as Helmut Lang, Giorgio Armani, Pierre Cardin, for their unisex-styled clothes. Plus Androgynous models steal the limelight on the fashion catwalk and glossy ad campaigns.
The fashion designer J.W.Andreson took a new road creating a collection that both woman and man can wear, this happened for the A-W Collection 2011
