a male dominated domain?
earlier this morning i was answering a question put forward by a peer
who was wondering why only the "sexy pictures seem to sell ". the poster wondered is it because "designers are mostly males".
i thought that was an interesting topic and a rather funny observation. the reaction of the observer being quite justified.
well, i replied to the question and i thought this would be ideal for my new blog today over here:
are fashion designers mostly males?
historically the most famous ones seem to give the impression that they are all male ie Yves St Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Ralph Lauren,etc.. browsing through a popular teen magazine listing their choices of top designers, 6 of 10 voted were male, or was it 7 of 10. oh never mind the rhetoics, you get my point !
on the personal front, when i was based in montreal, QC, canada, i attended the annual mode festival, and was impressed by the design of a certain young designer. she , yes she, is from Quebec City.
more recently, last summer while going boutique to boutique along halifax downtown to promote myself as a new arrival photographer to my new home-city, i discovered that a line of clothes that i find very stylish, are actually the work of yet another young canadian designer based here in halifax, NS, canada.
female? personally appealingly obviously... yes !
summing, i would say that the majority APPEARS to be male, but only because the males tend to make the most noise, and by design AND HUMAN NATURE, the male are more flamboyant and louder to get their designs noticed. they make more noise and gain more attention .
much like the hen and the rooster? :)
don't you agree ?
