Queer style has its own revolutionary roots but is also part of a rich legacy of fashion as empowering political resistance. Today, a new generation of women are carrying the torch passed to them by their elder trailblazers who dared to wear the pants to fight the patriarchy. Photographer Debbie-jean Lemonte hit the Hamptons to capture some of today’s leading women “menswear” influencers who proudly donned bespoke power-suits designed by The Tailory, a female owned and operated custom clothing company. The all-star model roster included androgynous model Ali Medina; Cris Domingo of La Garçonniére; Ariam Geffrard of A Dapper Chick; and Danielle Cooper of She’s a Gent.
