Fight Like A GRRRL
GRRRL Clothing seems like a genuine and honest clothing company. They describe themselves to be strong, independent, and borderline aggressive. They celebrate the many different sizes and shapes that women come in and cater their clothing styles and designs to them. They seek to unite women, to re-energize them, and in doing so, give women a bigger say in how things work and how things happen. All for the end goal of making a better world. And frankly I don’t disagree with them.
I sometimes wonder about how the world of fashion has evolved. I’m definitely no expert when it comes to fashion and fashion history. But I imagine that it started out as a way to clothe people and to give them a sense of style while meeting functional requirements. Over the years, commercialism, glamour, and modelling may have evolved out of a human desire to be different, to stand out, and to entice envy. Now we see ultra luxurious brands and magazines dictating ideas of how people should look and should feel about themselves and the clothes they wear. We are caught up in this wave of high spending and sometimes being a little disingenuous with ourselves. It all seems a little unbalanced to me.
GRRRL clothing has a different approach to apparel. They stand for something meaningful and a return to a more logical and sensible balance of function and fashion. I hope that in the future, there will be more brands like GRRRL. I hope these brands are successful and find their way to all closets, men and women alike. I hope that success won’t blind these brands to what they originally started out as.
My short and perhaps confused statement of fashion being over. What’s more important to me as an MMA fight fan is that GRRRL is a trending brand that we see more and more female fighters wearing. I believe GRRRL is represented by the deadly and dangerous Thug Rose Namajunas. I’ve also seen many female fighters on instagram wearing GRRRL clothing including former UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm, and current Invicta Featherweight Champion Megan Anderson. Definitely a cool brand to wear when supporting your favourite female fighter. Get GRRRL clothing at their website below.
