Every now and then, we are hit by a creative force that elevates fashion and takes it to a space that very few dare to enter. Gucci’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele has done just that. Our title story highlights The Alessandro Effect, and studies how he has skillfully managed to reinvent the global giant that is Gucci. By blurring the boundaries between sexes, he has given beauty a new avatar.

Pop culture has accepted this celebratory moment and blur. Androgyny has seeped into the mainstream—it’s a phenomenon that is being witnessed world-over. Unisex fashion shows are being presented. Women are walking the runway wearing men’s clothing and men wearing women’s clothing. Both sexes are sharing clothes and this neutral sensibility is seeping into various genres of creativity, be it art, film, music and so on.

In Listed, we feature five such homegrown designers who have been creating non-gender in fashion since a while. Be it Arjun Saluja who has been consistently celebrating gender fluidity, brands such as Antar-Agni, P.E.L.L.A, Theorem, or desi- gner Kallol Dutta, they don’t design keeping gender in mind. They have all shared their notion of the blur that one is exper- iencing today.

On the other hand, Booker winner Marlon James shares a detailed account of what it took to write his very ambitious novel, A Brief History of Seven Killings. Animator Sanjay Patel talks about his Oscar-nominated debut short film, Sanjay’s Super Team. The recipient of Waislitz Global Citizen Award for his NGO, Sanitation and Health Rights in India, Anoop Jain makes good use of open defecation.

And last but not the least, the brilliant Bharat Sikka captures a fashion story that inspires you to find your own way.
