This reads to me as the fashion industry continuing to capitalize on the trends of oppressed people. This collection really isn't very innovative in my opinion besides that it was inspired by a genderqueen artist. The ideas behind the collection are only riding the coattails of genderqueen fashion even though Dior is implying they are transgressing gender with it.

If Dior was actually transgressing gender with this collection they would have included model's with masculine bodies in the collection and started fighting the oppressive gendered world of women's/men's fashion collections. I would love to see a RTW collection feature both feminine and masculine models.

Don't get me wrong, I think its a great step for Dior to be embracing genderqueer fashion, but there is still a long way to go before trans people are being represented by the industry.

I think you're right. It's a bit frustrating that them is publishing this in this way. I'm used to them producing better work.

It's a bummer for sure. them is definitely targeting their genderqueer audience to support Dior because them is also owned by Conde Naste who also owns Vogue and surely gets a large amount of advertising revenue, etc. from Dior.
