Dapper Chicks of New York is a project I created to bring a community together. We are uniting to showcase individuality, and style. We are all different chicks, but we do have one common thing that binds us all together. We love fashion. We love men’s fashion.
The project is also to bring awareness to cyber-bullying. A few others have been victims of bullying, whether it may be cyber, emotional or physical. Fairly recently, I was its victim. Sadly, the other party felt like it was a competition and proceeded to attack me along with their friends. It severely affected my life to the point where I felt like giving up on everything. I never thought it was real, until then. Thanks to the support of my family, my close friends, you and my fellow dapper chicks, I am here as confident as ever taking a stand.
We dress up and join forces to make a difference. Help us say NO to cyber-bullying.

“Borrowing dresses from people has allowed me the opportunity to start a dialogue with those lending me clothes. Those discussions have been a way of engaging in discussion about the binary gender system we are forced into by society. I may not have reached the world with my work, but I have reached those in my life, and those who through the project have come into my life. A small circle of influence, yes, but one equally as important as those who are blessed with talking to and influencing audiences in the thousands or millions.
This post is a collection of links to the 35 dresses I have managed to photograph so far. I hope you enjoy them, and if you do, please like or reblog ”
