An incredible artist named Alice wrote to me with an unusual and creative submission. I’m rather blown away.
She made up some characters that she draws in actual clothes she’s been coveting/ checking out. One of her characters, named Ada, is into a lot of menswear and gender-nonconforming styles. She said she takes a lot of inspiration from Qwear for Ada’s outfits. I think this is such a beautiful way to explore fashion and gender without spending any money. Imagine if you could draw yourself in the clothes you wanted to wear, or if you could draw the haircut you’d be dreaming of before going for the plunge.
As Qwear's Founding Editor, Sonny’s work centers around envisioning a future in which the clothing people wear does not dictate their chances of survival. Sonny was awarded 2015 dapperQ of the Year and was the first trans blogger to be sponsored by Topman. In March 2016, Sonny spoke at South by South West's first official queer fashion panel.
