As a leader in the world of fast fashion, Spanish clothing retailer Zara is known for its rapid production process that involves scoping cutting-edge runway styles and having them appear within stores in mere weeks. Now, Zara continues to push the boundaries of fashion with its new 'Ungendered' collection.

The Ungendered collection features basics that can be worn by both men and women. To reiterate this, the items are modeled by both male and female models in product photos. But beyond being simply "unisex," there are undertones that suggest greater inclusivity.

CTV News spoke to Courtney Scharf, Trend Hunter's Director of Research Operations on the topic, who said: "If I were to put money on any of the trends that we see on Trend Hunter, gender diversity and gender fluidity and acceptance -- that would be it."
