Model Rain Dove defy gender norms by modelling both men’s and women’s fashion

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.

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.
