Gabrielle Popadenis is a recent 2021 Fashion Design graduate from Sheffield Hallam University.

Gabrielle’s collection "JUST ONE OF THE LADS" is an exploration of the pressures people (usually women) often feel to fit into typically 'masculine' environments, i.e., sports clubs, pubs and male dominated jobs and how we often change the way we act and or dress to appear more accepted in these environments.

She has explored typically masculine silhouettes and how 'masculinity' is becoming more fluid with people like her muse Harry Styles leading the way. With her research she has designed and created a collection built on masculine silhouettes with a very feminine flair, dissolving the idea you have to dress a certain way to fit into these environments and subverting the gender stereotypes in these type of situations.
