Most people think that feminism hates men. In recent years, this man-hater logic is affecting fashion. If we look at the fashion industry, according to the statistics, we can easily say that men designers are higher than women designers.
For example, most of the top womenswear designers are male (Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani, for example) as well as many of the best known fashion photographers (including Terry Richardson, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Jeurgen Teller and Nick Knight).

However feminists are fighting for equal social, political and economic rights for women they do not want men power in fashion industry. They want to wear what they want. An example of this behavior is that feminist woman prefers to wear designs of ‘’Celine’’ instead of ‘’Marc Jacobs’’.
