Shirt And Skirt
Throughout history, clothing has defined a person’s place in society, and governments have enforced dress codes by gender, race, ethnicity, and class. WilliWear collapsed the idea that people should wear clothing that conformed to a fixed identity. Smith emphasized a resistance to class distinctions prevalent in fashion at the time, saying, "My mother and grandmother were always ladies of style and still are. I guess they taught me that you didn’t have to be rich to look good."
