In her own words, the model Erika Linder has “too much imagination to just be one gender;” through the slightest shifts in styling, dress, and emotive expression, she can seamlessly transition from “masculine” to “feminine” constructed beauty ideals. Her sultry and commanding stare remind us of the vast potential of gender expression as a means of self-actualization and individual evolution.

 

 

And the fashion industry is finally catching up to her and her gender fluid aesthetic: she is now both the male and female face of Crocker by JC Jeans Company. Explains the company of the campaign, “we want this collection to inspire creativity and confidence as we set out to break new boundaries within the fashion industry.” This fashion line is for everyone, embracing gender-bending beauty and progressive modes of self expression. We hope to see more like it in the future; what do you think?
