He Said/We Said – A Queer, Multimedia Fashion Series


dapperQ.com is pleased to announce our latest in a line of regular multimedia fashion features, the newly launched “He Said/We Said” series, which showcases real world models from our community wearing their individual creative takes on high fashion menswear. Here’s the gist: Juanita Erb invites a group of dapperQs to model a look that they create using a photo of a menswear ensemble as inspiration. All of the models participating in the shoot are given the exact same photo for inspiration, and each is then responsible for fashioning an interpretation.

You can find He Said/We Said every month on AfterEllen.com, starting with March’s edition below. All photos are by Sabrina Haley.
