This photo project aims to provide a visual exploration on the fluidity and dynamism of femininity through style and dress. By playing with the ‘pantsuit’, widely recognised as traditionally ‘masculine’ attire, the project serves to invert traditional symbols associated with gender roles, femininity and identity.
The shoot aims to contribute to discussions on intersectional feminism and explore the ways black, dark-skinned women navigate harmful one-dimensional and Eurocentric representations of femininity.
