“WHY NOT US?!”

This editorial directed by Polimoda fashion student Rachele Chiappini, was inspired by the sukeban girls who were part of a Japanese feminist subculture from the late 60s.

”I was inspired by this wave because it was composed by school girls who decided to avoid sexualization by wearing long pleated skirts at school and during their casual life. This movement was really powerful back in the 70s and it was firstly crated because girls weren’t allowed to partecipate to male gangs so they decided to create female-only gangs (my title was inspired by this feeling).The feminist movement changed consistently during the last 50 years, so I wanted to created a new version of what the sukeban girls were: they were more than girl gangs, they were families, powerful families!”
