They’re an androgynous model who’s changing the binary nature of fashion castings by modelling both menswear and womenswear.
They call themselves a ‘gender capitalist representing “human” in fashion’, and they’re using their platform to raise awareness of all sorts of worthy causes, from LGBTQ rights to homelessness.
Rain Dove’s already landed a number of international magazine spreads as well as having walked on major catwalks.

My strength does not come from my clothing. No matter what I wear whether my choice or not- I guarantee I will still be me. Because I'll be damned if I let something as simple as Cloth be my shackles. We are stronger than fabric. More purposeful than politics. And here for a reason so much more magnificent than making our appearances fuckable. There's more reason to life than potential orgasms, genitalia and lust. I know that may sound crazy but- its true. #SocietyChoseThisGarmentBasedOnMyBirthCertificate #DoesntBotherMe #lovetheskinyourein #FabricIsntAPrison #lgbtqpiadkh #lgbt #genderfluid #genderreveal #tomboy #janegirl #IamI #KeepItUp #WBW
Rain Dove has walked at New York Fashion Week on both the women’s and menswear catwalks.
‘I am not a boy. I’m not a girl either,’ they say.
‘My body has specific mechanics and parts that can be sorted and labelled – but they do not define my conscious intentions, actions, or capabilities. My body is simply a tool to help me access the world around me – but the me that is me is beyond this body and beyond a binary.’
And much of their Instagram is dedicated to showing her wearing the men’s and women’s version of outfits to make just that point.
