The power of style is not just the clothes on our backs – it is self-expression, representation and transformation. Ojibwe fashion and style writer Christian Allaire demonstrates this in his vibrant and empowering book How Fashion and Beauty Are Being Used to Reclaim Cultures. Meet Christian and learn about his mission to crush prejudice in the fashion industry and create more opportunities for diverse designers and concepts. From cosplay to makeup, and hijabs to hair, Allaire probes the connections between fashion, history, culture, politics and social justice to prove that a shirt is never just a shirt.
