Vulvar Style, Pussy Couture

Vagina-inspired fine art is ubiquitous, from Judy Chicago’s pussy plates to Georgia O’Keeffe’s pearly petals, but what about vagina-inspired fashion? If we’re thinking inside the box, there’s a vast array of clothing and accessories that owe everything to our lady parts: dresses with silken folds, purses with delicate creases, and, of course, the ever popular hood. Next time you question the placement of a ruffle or strategically placed pleat, remember that even designers can do their part to counter phallocentric fashion with vulvar style.
