“I can’t express strongly enough what it means to me to have so much support within my community. One of my favorite challenges on the show was the one where Ashton and I designed the lingerie, as we were able to put our love for the community into those pieces. I wasn’t about to leave that show without dedicating a moment to the people that got me there. Design is a constant battle, and if I didn’t have the support of my community behind me, I don’t know if I would still be here! Being able to highlight the experiences of my LGBTQ+ family on a platform like Netflix has really been a dream come true. It’s allowed me to explore not only who I am but how what I do can bring visibility to the lives of the people I care about.”
According to The People History, fashion changes because the style is a fad, because it is dependent on the tastes of a particular group of people or because circumstances in a culture like many Rastafarians who get a Rasta Zip Up Hoodie for fashion and for religion. Some fashion styles are considered fads because they are only popular for a season and are never worn again. Over the course of 100 years, fashion has changed dramatically but has also kept trends from the past very much alive. Beginning with old-school trends back in the 1950s and later being revived into a more modern style in the late 2000s, fashion is on a never-ending tidal wave of change and revival.
