Christian Allaire (Nipissing First Nation Ojibwe)
Style is not just the clothes on our backs — it is self-expression, representation, and transformation. As a fashion-obsessed Ojibwe teen, Christian Allaire rarely saw anyone that looked like him in the magazines or movies he sought out for inspiration. Now, as the Fashion and Style Writer for Vogue, he is working to change that — because clothes are never just clothes. In this book, Allaire discusses topics like cosplay, makeup, hijabs, and hair, probing the connections between fashion and history, culture, politics, and social justice.
