Bodymap 1985 – We’re Experiencing Ourselves

 

”Men can wear skirts,” Mr. Holah commented. ”I sometimes walk around in a dress just to show the world that we don’t have to be what they say we must be. I like it when people have strong feelings about it.”

”Our clothes are really a form of questioning,” he said. ”The whole girl-boy thing in our clothes is about how I feel about girls and boys. When I was in school the boys and girls were not allowed to mix. And as a boy you weren’t allowed to have a girl as a friend. You were forced to have a girlfriend. Otherwise you weren’t normal. There’s always been a macho thing here. So we make clothes that show that the sexes can be mixed together even to the extent that we can borrow from each other. We’re experiencing ourselves.”
