”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.”

DMS in action. I think this photo might be by Isabel Snyder – not sure though.
