Has the Fashion industry changed skateboarding?


Stefs latest article on how she believes fashion has changed skateboarding, and vice versa, has gotten the skate community talking. She argues that skateboarding in mainstream fashion is a good thing…

“As a person who loves to participate in sports, I would scathe at being called a ‘Tom Boy’ as a child, I would think, “I am a girl… Why do they have to label me some sort of boy just for wanting to have fun?” Why is masculinity attributed to anything interesting I want to do?

For this reason, the seemingly clueless inclusion of skateboarding in shows at London Fashion Week, and in magazines such as Vogue and Marie Claire, (which I imagine had most skateboarders rolling their eyes in disgust), has brought a sideways smile to my face.” – @stefaninurdingxx
