Janice de Waal, stylist and former fashion publicity manager for the Edcon Group, says: "Historically, this is new territory for retailers in terms of original design and manufacture. It will be very interesting to see if the manufacturing challenges around body shapes can be modified."
Janice also says: "With the call for more freedom of expression in an increasingly gender-neutral world, we have seen an increase in retail fashion that appeals to this newer genre. More fashion styles are available to choose from than ever before, with trends freely open to personal interpretation."
People who are not men have different reasons as to why they exclusively or partially visit the men's section for their shopping. Often, it's due to a preferred fit and sometimes the style is what is appealing. This, and more, is true for me as well.
