Political Pattern #1

We are all born naked. We are all born free. Yet the female body is governed by law and social norms. From a young age girls are encouraged to be desirable for the opposite sex. Therefore fashion is an obvious obsession of most women. As our second skin – our tool to manage sex appeal – fashion has the power to empower or suppress the individual. Fashion is the burqa. Fashion is the miniskirt. The rules are dictated by patterns that change each season. Patterns, that for centuries have been dictated by men. Patterns, that can be copied and changed to suit the individuals need. The choice makes the difference; conform or rebel.
