      1. fashion history ends up being so complicated. I think she might have even been against feminism, but like Margaret Thatcher used the feminine to “work” the man’s world she wanted power in.
        Are you going to chose different artists for the dark side article or these same ones? I admit I only read about Coco before and don’t know the others on your list historically. I look forward to your writing for sure!
