Chella Man’s very first collection and collaboration with Opening Ceremony are an open invitation to strive towards a future where all individuals can tell their own story, a privilege in our world today.

Each piece traces back to revelations connected to Man’s identity as a queer, disabled, person of color.
From written messages on the fabric about his experiences as a Deaf individual to drawings he has created throughout his transition on testosterone, the collection defies the limitations of who someone can look like and be.

Allow these pieces to provoke this question - What constructs in your life must you unlearn to uphold inclusivity and respect for all?
