Are we inching closer to fashion without gender?

While adoption of genderless styles isn’t widespread among brands, the role of gender in fashion is being discussed more than ever.

Earlier this summer, 19-year-old Kendra Scott launched her first-ever men’s collection, in response to customer demand heard through communication with in-store teams, especially in-store stylists, and through the brand’s social media. 

“Our customers have been telling us for years that they’re interested in seeing more masculine designs from our brand,” said Scott. “Men already shop in our stores for the women in their life — they make up 38% of our customers. So it’s a natural extension.”

Gen Z’s ‘nowstalgia’ for Y2K fashion is leading to a thrifting explosion

It’s part of a rising trend of Y2K fashion and what has been called “nowstalgia” among Gen Z, who are reliving early 2000s fashion trends they were too young to experience or remember the first time around.

“I think there’s like this resurgence of what was so cool in the 2000s … now that it’s coming back, it’s like you want to infuse it with today’s pop culture,” said Lisa Sahakian, CEO and founder of Ian Charms.

It’s not just beaded necklaces coming back into style. Iconic fashion trends of the early 2000s like bucket hats, low-rise jeans, and babydoll

Renting fashion can be green, argue clothes renters | Fashion industry

The fashion rental industry has challenged the findings of a recent high-profile report that suggested renting clothes is “less green than throwing them away”, based on the environmental impacts of transportation and dry cleaning.

The study, published by the Finnish scientific journal Environmental Research Letters, assessed the environmental impact of five different ways of owning and disposing of clothing, including renting, resale and recycling.

“We believe that rental needs scrutiny to make it as ‘green’ as possible, but we’re worried that encouraging people to throw clothes away doesn’t help the industry, let alone the planet,” says Tamsin Chislett, CEO and

TikTok is known for many things: viral dances, comedy and activism. But the social media app has also made a name for itself as a fashion incubator, where trendsetters are born and trends are revived, such as 1960s fashion and the now-popular, yet controversial low-rise jeans.

Agus Panzoni, a fashion trend researcher who runs @thealgorythm, a fashion trend TikTok,  says the platform has influenced both mainstream fashion and helped bring back the popularity of subcultures — and major brands are taking note.
