I’m not sure why we haven’t seen a lot of women’s grunge, but there are a few trends I think we’ve overlooked.
First, the grunge look is not exclusively masculine.
The look is all about the attitude and the music, says Tia Bala, who runs her own women’s clothing line.
And second, a grunge wardrobe is not about being the best.
“I think it’s just a place to hang out and have fun.
I think it comes with the territory,” says Bala.
She says it can be a safe space for a woman to have fun with herself, or a place where she can explore and create new ideas.
Bala also says that grunge is a fun time for women to be active.
She sees it as a way for women in the 21st century to be free, independent and empowered.
I see the world a different way, says Balsa.
I’m a self-employed person.
I don’t have the time or resources to go to the mall and go shopping, so I’m looking for ways to give back.
I like to make things, says Kristina Tumbe, who is based in Montreal.
She runs her women’s fashion label, Tumbey, and she says that the clothes she makes are for her daughters.
“We’re really passionate about the way women look, and that’s why I make them,” she says.
Women’s clothing, says Jessica Gomes, a professor of sociology at the University of Toronto, is the fastest-growing fashion market in the world.
“In the past, women were relegated to the basement of the mall, where they were just treated like little kids.
So now they’re making clothes for women who want to be considered to be part of a global community, or women who have an interest in fashion,” says Gomes.
“You want to create something for a global audience, and this is the way to do it,” says Tumbee.
Gomes says that while the fashion industry has seen growth in women’s footwear and accessories, she is not sure what it is that makes women so excited about this new form of fashion.
There are a lot more women making clothes, and women are paying attention to the brands that are making them, says Goes.
She also says the trend is not limited to women.
Women are creating things that are more sophisticated, and they’re taking that interest in themselves and their work and making it something that’s more about them than about a male clientele.
The trend is definitely gaining traction in the fashion world, says Dina Rinaldi, a fashion writer and author of The Fashion Revolution: A New Era of Fashion in America.
“You can see the women in these magazines are really excited about the new trends,” says Rinalda.
“The more fashion designers that are putting out clothes that are inspired by women, and creating things inspired by them, the more it’s going to be a good thing for fashion,” she adds.
With a new crop of designers and artists, the women of fashion are finding a way to take on the challenge of becoming fashion stars.
But is it all that fun?
Rinaldias says that when women are working in a fashion industry that is predominantly male, it can feel like a chore.
“A lot of men who are involved in the industry, especially the designers, want to keep women under their thumb, and the female designers want to try to create things that will appeal to a larger audience,” she explains.
That can be challenging for women.
“It’s not just about the fashion, it’s about the art,” says Tara Stinson, a former fashion designer who is now a senior lecturer at the London School of Economics.
When it comes to women’s clothes, she says, they are not always aware of what is going on behind the scenes.
She is always trying to get out of the box, and make it as different as possible from what men are used to.
She tells me that it can make the work a little more difficult for women designers, who often find themselves making more expensive, higher-quality pieces.
For example, when Stinson is designing a gown for a wedding, she often needs to find an inspiration.
“Women who are working with men often find it very difficult to find something that suits them and feels good, and it just doesn’t work,” she said.
It is a struggle, but Stinson says that it’s worth it to be creative and to work with the best and most talented designers.
As for the men, it is not always easy to get women to want to dress up, says Stinson.
“Men are always very interested in how women look.
We often have to work very hard to make it look right for them.”
