Male Models Wear Cashmere Mini Dresses at New York Fashion Show

FashionAs clothing becomes more amorphous and less gender specific, lines are blurring. At Hood by Air’s FW 2015 runway show in New York this week, male models wore slit dresses down the runway, while Public School showed women wearing men’s trousers.

On Sunday, New York-based designer Telfar Clemens had two male models strut the runway in deconstructed cashmere mini-dresses with matching leg-warmers.

This is nothing new for Telfar, who has long been recognized for his avant-garde designs. In 2010, he fashioned sheer tank tops from plastic bags, and last year he put his male tribe in mini skirts.

    Deuteronomy 22:5, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

    Anything the enemy of souls can conjure up to mock God and His precious Word, that he will do. Keep these deceived ones in prayer because they are obviously being used by the devil to flaunt this unholy and immoral mindset among the masses.

      So I can’t wear pants? Or I’m sinning?

      • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

        Well what is the definition of sin? According to the Scriptures…

        1 John 3:4, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

        That Law being the eternal Law of God, which are the Ten Commandments. Now why would God declare such to be an abomination? Because doing so is sin. How? That man or woman is a LIAR. He or she is guilty of breaking Commandment #9. The person who wears such clothing declares to the world that he or she is something that they are not. Maury Povich took this idea and deceived many men with his “He or She” guessing games. Even some of the women were deceived.

        The person is also covetous because he or she DESIRES to be something that he or she is not. That person is guilty of breaking Commandment #9.

        And guess what? That person also soils the very image of God that created man in His image. He or she is guilty of breaking Commandment #5.

      I hope your clothes are sufficiently tasseled:

      Deuteronomy 22:12: “You shall make tassels on the four corners of the clothing with which you cover yourself”

      And don’t you DARE mix your fabrics:

      Deuteronomy 22:11 “You shall not wear a garment of different sorts, such as wool and linen mixed together”

      • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

        Actually the verse reads… Deu 22:11, “Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.”

        Which I believe would be a serious issue if you were traveling in a desert in the scorching heat, then yes, it would not be wise to mix wool and linen (i.e. polyester) I have worn a polyester suit before in church and let me tell you its not good.

        Same applies to this verse as well:

        Deu 22:12, “Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself” You have to keep the context active. Why did God have Moses command this? Look at where the “tassel” is placed…upon the four quarters or “ends” of the garment. It would be the same as wearing a ball gown…in a desert. Dragging miles and miles of sand, dust and debris…not wise. 🙂

        • April J

          Good to know context only applies when it helps perpetuates ones own agenda. Got it.

          • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

            I did not know I HAD an agenda. I did not write the word, I am just sharing it. But if you feel its ok for a grown man to dress like a woman and then use the Word of God to define such as being ok then by all means, have at it. Or maybe God has “evolved” to where such decadence is now allowed…please enlighten me…but if you must I insist that you use Scripture to validate your claim.

          • April J

            I mostly meant to point out that you only used context to refute my verses relevance but offered none to support the verse you referenced .

          • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

            You say we cannot mix clothing and I say you’re twisting it a bit out of whack when you
            say we can’t mix clothing. Again, the Lord was instructing them (Israel) not to mix certain types of clothing. In this case linen with wool. Reason being is, it would make the body feverish. Those two particular fabrics have been discovered by scientists decades ago to actually cause the person to pass off natural electricity from the body in an unhealthy manner. For example; in a hot climate it could bring on fevers that can exhaust and weaken the person as well as cause excessive sweating and dehydration that can lead to worse things.

            Ezekiel 44:17-18, “And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and NO WOOL shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and within. They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that CAUSETH SWEAT.”

            Now…

            1 Corinthians 6:9-10, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor EFFEMINATE, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

            Effeminate in Strong’s Greek Concordance G3120 – malakos

            A. effeminate

            1. of a catamite

            2. of a boy kept for homosexual relations with a man

            3. of a male who submits his body to unnatural lewdness

            4. of a male prostitute

            Merriam-webster defines effeminate as:

            : having feminine qualities untypical of a man : not manly in APPEARANCE or manner

            So I ask, is a man wearing a womans skirt manly in appearance? Or is it that the church has molded in to a REDEFINITION of the Word or “evolution” and such verses like these are not applicable because this attire is now fashionable?

            Again, the word of the Lord declares that such shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God. I can give more supporting verses if needed 🙂

            I don’t think a verse from the new testament can serve as contextual background for a verse from Deuteronomy. But I digress, it’s been fun…but it’s probably better now if we just continue on with our lives as if this fruitless debate never happened.

          “mix wool and linen (i.e. polyester)”

          Polyester is not made by combining wool and linen.

          “I have worn a polyester suit before in church and let me tell you its not good.’

          There is no good place to wear a polyester suit.

          • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

            My apologies. I should have gave a better example, just the first thing I could think of was the old days of wearing the polyester suit when I was a child. All I remember that it was very hot and itchy 🙂

          • thoughtsfromflorida

            I had one of those too. Powder blue. Ack!

    • thoughtsfromflorida

      So then you are against women wearing pants, correct?

      • http://www.remnantofgod.org/ John1429dotorg

        I am not against anyone from doing anything. Everyone has free will to do what they want to do. But this is a forum and these are my comments, and my comment is derived from a Biblical perspective.

        • thoughtsfromflorida

          Wouldn’t a biblical perspective include women not wearing pants? And wouldn’t doing so “mock God and His precious Word” and indicate that they are “obviously being used by the devil to flaunt this unholy and immoral mindset among the masses.”?

          “I am not against anyone from doing anything.”

          Then you are not against allowing two people of the same gender to enter into civil marriage, correct?

      Leviticus 19:19, Don’t wear clothes of two types of thread. I think that means every bra and elastic waisted undies you have are condemning you. Repent now John1492! Or just quit Judging people based on the youngest religious text there is besides L. Ron Hubbard’s, the bible.

        The question is often asked, Why was this requirement given? One of the first things God did for Adam and Eve after they had sinned, was to make clothes for them. (Gen. 3:21)

        Garments are a type of Christ’s righteousness, with which He clothes every one whose sins are forgiven. (Is. 61:10) Before man sinned, he was clothed with a garment of light and glory, and God designs that our garments should remind us of the heavenly dress with which He will finally clothe the redeemed. (Rev. 3:5; 19:8)

        God says, “I am the first, and I am the last; and beside Me there is no God.” “My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.” (Isa. 44:6; 42;8)

        Part of our life can not be clothed with the “filthy rags” of our own righteousness, (Is. 64:6) and the remainder with the pure, spotless robe of Christ’s righteousness. We can not serve God in our home and church life, and serve mammon if our daily business life. The one who continues doing it will never enter the kingdom of heaven. “Ye can not serve God and mammon.”

        The Saviour taught the lesson that we can not patch our own filthy robes of self-righteousness with the righteousness of Christ. “No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.” (Luke 5:36)

        The Israelite who conscientiously refused to mingle woolen and linen in his daily garments, and saw in it the lesson God designed to teach, would also refrain from sin. His entire dress, made of but one kind of cloth, would constantly remind him of the perfect robe of Christ’s righteousness, given to the faithful.
