Model Defies Gender Norms, Poses For Both Mens and Womenswear
By Izza Sofia, 11 Jul 2017
Rain Dove is a model, activist and self-proclaimed “Gender Capitalist”.
While she does not conform to either men’s or women’s body standards, that has not stopped her from storming the industry.
Now, Dove is appearing in international magazine spreads, walking major catwalks and using this platform to change how people see gender through the medium of fashion. Dove fell into the world of modelling by mistake. After losing a bet with a friend, Dove ended up going to a casting call for Calvin Klein, which turned out to be for menswear.
With a body that defies society’s expectations of gender, Dove’s appearance allows the model to beautifully straddle the line between mens and womenswear. As a result, Dove has quickly become a vibrant spokesperson for LGBTQ issues.
Dove’s Instagram is dedicated to raising awareness on gender neutrality by posting self-portraits featuring male and female versions of the same outfit.
“I want people to realize that they aren’t their bodies. They are something more than their bodies. Clothing shouldn’t be a societal shackle. It should be art and truth and a way for us to show the world what we want out of it”, Dove explained.
Take a look at some of her photos below, or head to Instagram to learn more about her.
