Author(s): Suman, Iulian
Despite the vast research regarding non-conformative bodies, there is little material on the gay bear representation in fashion modelling. This article investigates the bear embodiment in the runway shows of Walter Van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2010 Wonder. Critical visual analysis follows the gay bear symbolism in the video recordings ofthe runways, revealing how it challenges the fashion industry’s body standards through body-inclusive gay bear embodiments.
