There is a long history of gender-nonconformity within the fashion industry, dating back to the roots of the runway and far beyond. How much attention models receive when they don’t fit neatly into that binary, however, has often changed with the trends. Androgynous, agender, genderqueer, trans* and cross-dressing models have been here since fashion began, but non-binary and genderqueer people have been in the spotlight recently with celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Ruby Rose speaking out, and social media makes following the genius of your favourite fashion icons a gorgeous, gentle breeze. Here are nine beautiful people of Instagram who are pushing gender boundaries, to inspire your next ensemble – butch, femme, or otherwise.
