Author(s):

Dr. Hina Kausher

Abstract:

This study delves into the intricate relationship between fashion and gender, scrutinizing how clothing choices serve as a powerful medium for both challenging and reinforcing traditional gender roles. The study investigates the multifaceted ways in which individuals, through their sartorial expressions, engage with and contribute to the ongoing discourse surrounding gender identity and societal expectations. It shows the importance of recognizing the agency that individuals possess in using fashion as a tool for self-expression and societal critique. It calls for a nuanced understanding of the interplay between clothing choices and gender roles, urging a more inclusive and diverse approach to fashion that embraces the spectrum of gender identities and challenges entrenched norms. Ultimately, the study contributes to a broader conversation on the transformative potential of fashion in shaping and reshaping societal perceptions of gender.
