An interesting chin-wag here on the Kitmeout forum. Opening post:

“Got a question for you. I been noticing that I am getting a lot of criticism from friends and what not about me taking a path into the fashion industry. We all know that men in the fashion industry are stereotyped in some shape or form by outsiders. When ever I talk about a designer or some idea that I may have someone attempts to belittle me. Even though I can’t care less with what they think, I just wonder does it ever stop? After you make a name for yourself in the industry or by simply having a good job doing what you love. I also wonder how often does it happen to you other guys even if you aren’t trying to leave your mark as a designer?”
