Welcome to Fashion Thursday! ~ 17th October 2013

tumblr_lzzsjnBHeB1r9nxebo1_500In a follow on from my advertorial on my cousin’s fashion label with an analysis on what might feminist fashion look like thrown in for good measure, I thought I’d have a look at what else is out there in the feminist fashion world. Just a recap on what I thought last week were feminist fashion credentials; social justice, environmental sustainability, rejecting gender boundaries, incluslive and genuine and practical. Feel free to comment on what you’d add to that list and any other feminist fashionistas that you know of (including yourselves).

Here’s what I found!

Broadist is a photo heavy blog (love this style of blogging, all visual treats!) that is clever and subtle. The author seems to love recycling/swapping clothes, ladies of all shapes and sizes and also likes to comment on social issues like fat shaming and the media. So basically this whole blog gets a massive LOVE from me! xxx

Threadbared is AMAZING fashion blogging digging deep into primarily race issues surround fashion while still loving it. The current article is about systemic racism in fashion and it’s AWESOME!

This is what you get when you search for feminist fashion on Tumblr.

Well not really feminist fashion, but feminist protesting at fashion and a punch up… so how could I resist including it.

Not only feminist fashion, now we also have feminist fatshion! So awesome.

Sadly, this blog seems to have gone on indefinite hiatus since January 2012, but it’s called feminist fashion so I feel it should be included. Plus, the last article was a round up on sexuality and fashion so YAY!

MsMagazine interviews three fashion writers about feminism and fashion!

Closer to home, Annie Stevens asks, Can you be fashionable and feminist?

A socially themed fashion magazine? That’s gotta be feminist!

Greta Christina says Fashion is a Feminist Issue!

How self expression brings fashion and feminism together.

And I’m sure there’s loads loads more, so how about you send them to us! Are you a fashionable feminist? What is feminist fashion to you?

  1. Oh, my lack of God — where did that wedding dress with the vulva on it come from?!?!? Who made it? Where did the photo come from? I am dying to know — I want to write an entire blog post about it!!
