CHESS BOUGHEY

What does diversity mean to you?

 

I think the meaning of diversity is always changing because it depends on the current state of equality. It is a breakdown of segregation in all of the ways we choose to divide people, and it is about keeping track of the groups of people who are lacking representation and finding them a space and a voice.

If there’s one thing you could change in the fashion industry what would it be? 

 

I would remove gendered language in fashion. The terms womenswear and menswear seem outdated now, it’s art for whoever wants to admire it or wear it.

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? 

Being comfortable and open with who I am to everyone in my life, and to have bought my own place.

What’s the craziest thing about you? 

I have a PhD in physics.

If you could spend a day with any super model in the world, who would it be and why? 

 

Rain Dove so we can talk about gender.

What do you love most about yourself? 

That I am able to express my inner conflict about gender through my outward appearance.

What does Beauty mean to you? 

 

That tingly feeling.
