Confidence in themselves is a silent battle many men are fighting, and creating a link between self-perception through fashion and men’s mental health is what Christopher Senekki has done so impressively.
On a daily basis, there seems to be a mounting pressure on men to conform to the status quo, and refusing to do so might make one the odd one out and subject to ridicule. Many men across the globe suffer from social anxiety, low self esteem and even depression, all due to the stress and pressure of trying to live up to the expectations and standards the society has set for them.
According to Christopher Senekki, the world of contemporary fashion has a very significant, yet often underrated role to play as regards to how men perceive themselves and in turn how their self-perception affects their mental health. What we wear has a way of influencing how we perceive ourselves, and in this case, expressing themselves through fashion helps in boosting the self confidence in men. Christopher has been following men’s fashion and styles for many years now, and has expressed his disappointment as to how fashion had been portrayed back in the 1980s and 1990s. he views them as a period characterized by a lack of creativity and innovation in men’s styles and also not so much concern as to how it influences the mental health of men. However, Christopher believes 2006 to have been a turning point. Because it was at this time Tom Ford launched his fashion label. He was working with Gucci for a while, acting as their chief designer. Then he found classical men’s fashion styles in the form of a contemporary collection. Tom Ford took off, and with him, a renewed version of the gentleman which many aspire till today
Christopher has drawn inspiration from his personal struggles, and sheds more light on the fact that many other men around the world suffer from mental health issues just like he did. The feeling of not feeling up to par has eaten into the hearts of many men, and is leading to many mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and even suicide.
