Argentinean brand Ona Saez is promoting individuality, freedom, tolerance and diversity in their Fall/Winter 2009 ad campaign.
Dubbed â€œSoy lo que Soyâ€ (which means, 'I Am What I Am'), the designs of the collection have that slogan alongside 'Be Yourself' and icons of various sexual preferences.
The ads use models of various races, sexual orientation and gender, with photography by Gustavo Di Mario.
Implications - As society evolves and the importance of the individual is becoming more important than the group, fashion and art are integrating this change into their representations. With sexuality and gender becoming more fluid, more flexible fashion choices are emerging. Designers and artists alike will market their apparel to consumers in a more accepting and open way, drawing in a larger demographic of buyers.
