The Trans-ition

THE BRIEF

Kari knows clothes alone can’t change the world.

Still, they’re crucial. Because the people who wear them will.

And so, she styles them.

If life isn’t perfect, an outfit sure can be.

As a transgender empowered with a fluid sense of style, she can primp a woman just as well as a man, laying bare that looking good isn’t self-importance, it’s self-respect.

It’s also self-expression. Because fashion has to reflect who you are.

Perhaps its most powerful tool is visibility; and with this comes advocacy.

As clothes build confidence, they cause change. In corners. In communes. In cultures. In civilizations.

In the cosmos, even.

Kari wants to spearhead that transition.

And fashion is her spear.
