The Rest is All Drag

As the world of fashion is evolving so is society’s idea of what “beauty” means. More recently in fashion Drag has been seen on the runway and in editorials. Overall the fashion industry’s idea of beauty has begun to expand its limits, and Drag since the beginning has been intended to magnify beauty and individuality; to push boundaries. For Drag to be used in the fashion world is the perfect marriage of fashion to the idea of expanding its depth. One of the largest influences in fashion was photographer Richard Avedon. Avedon’s imagery shaped the industry and some of our own views of beauty. I’ve taken some of his most iconic black and white portraits and editorial work and swapped out the original models for those in the drag community to show fashion and society’s evolution, an idea that Avedon himself explored.
