Designers Create Dress of Flags From Countries Where Homosexuality Is Banned for One Powerful Purpose
uncategorized| | By Mauricio Castillo
Powerful actions have always been integral to creating change. Fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen and artist Oeri van Woezik are two trailblazers who continue this ideal, this time with a creation sure to turn heads and continue the discussion about same-sex marriage and LGBT equality.
The United States legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states, but progress for the sake of progress is useless without keeping the goal in mind. Bergen and Woezik have decided to make another statement in the fight toward full acceptance and equality.
And, in an effort to further instill the message and need of equality, De Hingh proclaimed on her Instagram: “Every country that changes its legislation will have its flag replaced by a rainbow flag. Let’s hope this dress will represent a patchwork of rainbows sooner rather than later!”
Eventually, if the message is heeded, the dress will be transformed into a stunning display of colors united and flowing together. Until then, it will stand as a reminder that the goal is still in mind, and that there is still work to be done.
