It is today in the twenty-first century that the power of youth is most evident. There are those times, however, when certain types of people come along and try to challenge conventions that are being followed at present, proving yet again that fashion cannot be limited by age.
One such person is Tessie Singson.
Known to thousands on social media as Lola Androgynous, Singson’s soft spot for fashion began at an early age, when her mother would serve as her personal “stylist,” picking her clothes for her as she is the only girl in a family with four siblings (“I grew up with three very butch brothers,” she states).
With some assistance from her son, fashion blogger JP Singson, from whom she found inspiration from a decade ago, she was introduced to gender-neutral stylings pioneered by strong, stylish personalities. Lola Androgynous shares, “He knows exactly what I like and what looks great on me. I look up to strong, stylish women like fashion blogger, Lyn Slater (Icon Accidental), and style icon, Iris Apfel. These women are not afraid to express themselves through fashion and inspire women like me to dress unapologetically. They are living examples that you can still have fun with what you wear, regardless of age.” She has since begun to share her outfits online, leading to chronicling her outfits on a fashion blog her son had created, now made more accessible via Instagram.
Lola Androgynous has also underscored the importance of good footwear, often having a tendency to become a statement piece. According to her, it can become the ‘make or break’ of an outfit.
