Abstract

Androgyny is defined as the mixing of masculinity and femininity, yet the way in which they are combined can vary from blending masculine and feminine signifiers to juxtaposing them. Using concepts of Post-postmodern Theory and Performatism this qualitative study how Millennial men create androgynous by juxtaposing menswear with womenswear. Participants were motivated by a desire to challenge gender roles, aesthetics of the garments, and spirituality. The "New Androgyny" is an aesthetic change from the androgynous appearance forms of the Postmodern age and represents new approaches to gender identity.
