Autostraddle sent Reneice Charles and Molly Adams to capture the spirit of the sixth annual dapperQ fashion show at Brooklyn Museum; here are Reneice’s reflections and Molly’s photographs.
In its 5th year, dapperQ continued to throw the most inclusive New York Fashion Week runway event, and it was amazing.
This year dapperQ took over the Brooklyn Museum with hundreds of queers to host the largest representation of LGBTQ designers and celebration of our bodies at New York Fashion Week.
“Embracing accessibility begins with representation.” Here, Kay Ulanday Barrett, QueenTite and Jax Jacki Brown explore queer communities, accessibility, and who is deemed fashion-able.
Last week, Molly accompanied LA-based Stuzo to New York Fashion Week’s largest queer fashion show, iD, presented by dapperQ.
We thought it was high time to let Boston dapperQs provide us with some holiday and New Year’s Eve style inspiration for our long running HS/WS project.
He Said/We Said brings you masculine-of-center interpretations of the last Band of Outsiders collection at a gorgeous old-time paper mill in Vermont.
With the stunning Beaux-Arts Court at the Brooklyn Museum as its backdrop, eight queer designers donned their queer, trans, fat, brown and disabled models in an exclusive first look at this season’s boldest, brightest, queerest and most dapper Spring/Summer collections.
In this edition of He Said/ We Said, dapperQ features the masculine gender queer style of some amazing queers in Toronto!
Bright colors, eclectic prints and carefree dress are featured in this edition of He Said / We Said.
Including Autostraddle’s own Lydia and A-Camper Magda!
We’ll be back in Cincy shortly, but in the meantime we have returned home to catch up with some of New York City’s finest dappers.
For our 21st edition, we’ve invited some dashing and stylish queers of Cincinnati to show us their swag.
DapperQ has partnered with Brooklyn Museum to present an evening of dapper style!
dapperQ showcases “that Philly swag” and the city’s beautiful architecture.
It gets bleeping cold in Vermont, so the dappers there are not playing around when it comes to style that is both fashionable and functional. The collection is rugged, stylish, and perfect for cold weather wardrobes.
Butche-Femme FaceOff sounds like the lesbian sequel to that insane John Travolta movie from the 90s. This isn’t that. It’s a discussion between badass queers on privilege and presentation. (I’d watch the hell out of that sequel tho.)
Like a boi band.
For our 18th edition of HS/WS, we returned to Cali, this time focusing on SoCal style.
The term “brunch style” does not automatically imply a specific level of formality. My suggestions would depend on the occasion (Meet the parents brunch? Wedding brunch? Date brunch? Hungover with your friends brunch? Autostraddler meet-up brunch? Hip-hop party brunch?) and the venue (Five star restaurant? Pub? Trendy café?).
dapperQ just came out with their second list of 100 most stylish individuals, and boy, does it deliver on the dapper!
