Androgyny in the history.

dot  After the First World War, the fashion of 1920 devoted the garçonne[1]. The figure of the androgyny occupied a considerable place there. The women bandaged their chest to erase it. The cuts of clothing avoided underlining the femininity of the bodies, gaining a new freedom to them. The war which had involved the men with the face, had opened the way of the emancipation to the women who, left their hearths, had occupied the functions hitherto exclusively reserved for the male sex. It is this indecision of the roles which generated perception that the loss of the traditional borders between men and women continued like a powerful factor of transformation of the world. Still today, the androgyny is perceived like the expression of a will to change the world.[2]

PERFECT LOOK: He is 16 years old and plays to be a bishonen. Hair and blue boots. Wool Skirt and sweater without  handles matched on a shirt with short handles. Gabrielle Lys. September 2007.

Androgyny in the fashion.

dot  The history of the mode abounds in scandals caused by the vestimentary and behavioral innovations. Rupture with the laid down rules of the collective, the fashion rupture is felt through the ages like a provocation. In the competition of the individuals and social groups for the control of their time and power, fashion takes place by touch or by radical caesura and it is felt like a powerful individual assertion. The fashion in its renewal, in its will to dissociate previous times, attack frontally their taboos.[2] And doesn't the androgyny remain a taboo of our time ?

Androgyny in my work of designer

dot  The world was born from the rupture of the perfect unit. It was born from the separation of the male principle and the principle female. The androgyne represents the perfect unit before the appearance of the world. It is located beyond the border where the masculine is distinguished from female and thus beyond the tensions and from the conflicts which are established between the two sexual poles of the life. The androgyne is perfect because the separation of the sexes is the image at the base of all the imperfections of the life.

dot  God who is at the same time One and All created the man with his image but created it male or female. Each man thus carries in him the androgyny. My research is that of a perfect model relating to the identity. I could discover only the images which proclaim the union of the opposites, the radical desire to be - man and woman - one in the other abolished. To coincide with divine is to find the preexistent unit.

dot  The fashion, material reality but spiritual activity is essential for me like symbolic quest of this research. there isn't other ways for me that to dig matters and forms in the search of this guiding principle. The fashion offers this field of experiments where the beauty is linked with itself as with its opposite by the myth of the androgyne...
