Hari Nef's Tumblr Take-over has officially begun! The actress, writer and model introduced her guest curation with a statement of intent: 'The fact is: fashion doesn’t care about trans issues, but it absolutely loves the trans aesthetic. Fashion loves fluidity, movement, role play, discovery–body joy and body horror. These are what they are, but in the context of bodies and clothes I would argue that they comprise what I call the trans aesthetic.'
Over the next seven days Nef will be exploring this the history (and future) of this aesthetic, starting with an analysis of a Helmut Lang look from 2003. Follow now!
