Genderless clothing is the future of fashion. We're finally starting to look past the binaries and get over the whole "girls wear pink and boys wear blue" thing with more and more designers blurring the lines between the female and male section in their collections and designers brands including Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent championing fluidity in fashion. 

 

And now a new Kickstarter campaign has launched which aims to spark a conversation about gender stereotypes. Coining the phrase The Future Has No Gender, MORTALS seeks to free the need for its customers to limit themselves to traditional gender stereotypes. 

 

The initial collection of tops, t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, kimonos, and skirts combines top-quality fabrics, unique prints and one-of-a-kind silhouettes to create a line that is beautifully subtle yet bubbling with cache and style.

 

Unconvinced? Here are five reasons to love gendeless clothes. 

 

1. It means children can grow up being who they want to be and wear what they want without restriction. Gender stereotyping is still a big part of our culture with pink and blue themed baby showers and we regularly tell children what they can and can't wear. Gender-neutral clothing from an early age will allow them to develop their own style and be more creative. 

 

2. Genderless clothing means FREEDOM. Wearing baggy jeans and a t-shirt is way more comfy than a tight skirt and heels. You can't even sit down without having to remember to shut your legs and bending down is a complete no go. Restrictive clothing sucks.

 

3. If genderless clothing was embraced by everyone then wearing a suit at your school prom wouldn't be a distant dream but a reality. I absolutely loathe wearing a dress and heels but alas 16-year-old me was forced to in order to attend.  Imagine the future of prom pictures - girls in blazers and suits and boys in dresses and heels. Everyone would look so much cooler. 

 

4. From Miley Cyrus to Ruby Rose, to drag kings and queens, more and more people are playing with traditional ideas of gender. And for people who identity as trans or non-binary, gender-neutral clothing is an important way of expressing themselves.  

 

5. If none of these reasons have swayed you to support gender-fluid clothing then how about this? Cara Delevigne in a suit is just about the hottest things in the world. Go and look it up now. You're welcome.
