About a month before the world learned about what kind of power Harvey Weinstein really had over women in Hollywood, I began noticing more and more how designers were creating clothes for women that looked like they were ripped off their bodies.
I’ve been holding on to some photos of clothes I found while shopping for my clients, that I didn’t quite know what to with, but now that it’s trending to get the truth about these roach like men, out into the open and under the spotlight, I want to share my ranting thoughts and photos with you.
Look at this shirt missing part of one sleeve. Doesn’t it look like someone tore it off?
How about these pants?
If a woman walked into a police department wearing any of these ridiculously designed clothes, they would have to assume she was attacked.
Isn’t it bad enough that women get sexually harassed, bullied and intimidated by men?
Now we have designers creating clothes that, in my opinion, are mocking being abused and taking being a fashion victim to a whole new level.
Listen up designers and retailers: women deserve designs and clothes that are flattering, professional, comfortable and affordable. Not, laughable, appalling and trivializing abuse.
We do not deserve clothes that mock and marginalize us. We deserve respect and dignity, and if we can’t get it from some men, we should at least get it from those who design the clothes we wear.
P.S. My opinion is not stuffy, old-fashioned or out of touch because I’m over 40. I wouldn’t want my daughter or any young woman to dress in clothes that look like these. Would you?
