ABOUT TOUCH ME Last year I designed a pair of denim bermuda shorts with embroidery on the center front. The words read “touch me” which was inspired by my favorite cult film “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” When I showed the shorts to my peers, they understood the unique embroidery placement, paired with the provocative phrase, was not just a cheeky design detail but also a way to empower people to embrace their sexuality. However, the criticism I received from some women, coming from a victim blaming mentality, was incredibly negative. They proceeded to tell me that women should dress so men would not touch them. Women must control the things we can, because men are not capable of controlling themselves. I was both sad and shocked. I felt censored. My style and brand is not for everyone. It’s for a person who wants to feel confident. I designed the “Touch Me” t-shirt to normalize the topic of sexuality and to address the importance that even if there are words on my body, no one has the right to touch me without consent. 15% of the proceeds will be donated to the Effing Foundation, to help spread awareness on a topic we both believe is important.
