Misty Dawn grew up wearing a lot of hand-me-downs, being 4th of 7 kids. She spent 4th-10th grade in a uniform then graduated into a ‘confused’ style in high school, where the goal was to “keep with what others were wearing.” That changed when 4 years ago Misty Dawn chose to stop shaving and stop wearing make-up. Initially Misty Dawn was self conscious but committed—eventually after moving to Seattle 2 years ago, Misty Dawn joined an intentional community, started farming, felt increasingly affirmed by those around her, began exploring non-binary gender expressions, and has found finally her fashion life’s pursuit: finding how to seamlessly meld the utilitarian farm aesthetic of overalls and work boots with her art femme weirdo ways.
