時裝,或更廣義的服裝,肯定是探討性別角色的最重要途徑之一;而性別元素或概念也反過來成為無數時裝設計師的的創作靈感。即使在這題目上造過幾多次文章,似乎在每個新時代,無論設計師、藝術家、還是策展人、編輯,仍然樂此不疲,仍有新猶。最近美國波士頓的Museum of Fine Arts為此策劃了全新展覽“Gender Bending Fashion”,追溯過去百年時裝中如何透過性形象的偏移,挑戰了社會的性別規範。

在整個展覽裏,出現了個人敘事,涉及性別認同和表達。性,種族,階級,流行文化,行動主義,社會正義等問題。 “Gender Bending Fashion”除了展現了不同年代的性別運動,如1920年代的garçonne look和1960年代的孔雀革命外,更加入了演員,音樂人和影響者穿著的作品,包括瑪蓮德烈治Marlene Dietrich,David Bowie,Jimi Hendrix等,多媒體演示還包括繪畫,照片,音樂和視頻。

近年新一代時裝設計師不少打正旗號以顛覆性別觀念作為創作核心,如英國的Charles Jeffrey Loverboy、Art School都算,不算新一代的Aleandro Michele也算當今反轉性別的中流砥柱,令當今的性別二元服裝定義受到強力挑戰。但是,中性或無性別運動並非新鮮事,過去早有不少先驅在性別議題上發力,創出非既定性別的服飾和影像,其中包括Jean-Paul Gaultier,Yves Saint Laurent,Rei Kawakubo和Rick Owens等。回顧不忘展望,展覽還探討了當下的社交媒體平台如何充當表達媒介,促進社會變革和提高LGBTQIA +社群的曝光,為他們充權,這也是時裝一大介入社會發展的範疇。
