  2. To improve gender relations
  3. To promote gender equality and highlight male role models
  4. To highlight discrimination against men and boys
  5. To celebrate their achievements and contributions to community, family, marriage, and childcare.

Men’s fashion plays an extremely important role in all our lives. It is a way to dress, a way to please, and a way to leave a lasting impression. No matter what the style is, men’s fashion at some degree or other has always been ruled by history and tradition.

Women’s fashion on the other hand, is much more fast, has a lot more choices and a lot more styles. Each culture having a distinct way for women to attire themselves, not always comfortable as an old shoe.
