Designer duo makes gender-fluidity a reality in fashion week debut

Designer duo makes gender-fluidity a reality in fashion week debut

Over the past few years, we’ve seen Hollywood and big clothing brands try to capitalize on the current cultural relevance of being “gender neutral”. While the sentiment may be good-hearted, it is a long way towards being genuinely authentic. Then, enter Art School – the brainchild of Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt, the design duo that’s creating all the fuss in the fashion community. For these partners, queer identity is beyond just another trend. It is a reality. Their reality. It’s not just about jumping aboard the bandwagon, but rather, about living their life in the real world.

The duo made their debut for fashion week at Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East showcase. Art School was presented with a non-model cast, directed by Theo Adams (who also happens to be a performance artist). ART SCHOOL is an official presentation at this year’s Fashion East Men’s Presentations AW17.
