- The first stage of the project consists of interviews with men of diverse ages, bodies, sexual orientations, ethnicities and (dis)abilities. During this stage, participants provide a tour of their wardrobes and describe the feelings and memories they attach to their clothes.
- The second stage is a transmedia fashion show featuring the interviewees. This process performs the research, sharing the results with the public through a creative, visual, and familiar medium.
This feminist-driven project created a new approach to understand and transform how men see themselves, interact with each other, and engage with women.
