A dress transition
Debora Dax has done several projects focused on body perception. Clothing is a big factor in self-expression, and communicating your true self through the way you look is especially important for transgenders. “People born in a male body wishing to express their feminine side can often feel disappointed when they try on women’s clothing: the shoulders are too tight, the sleeves too short and the hips are too wide”, says Debora. She has made a collection of comfortable, loose-flowing tops and skirts that helps them minimize masculine body characteristics and emphasize their feminine appearance as individuals.
