The Rana Plaza factory collapse in 2013 killed over 1,100 people and led to the indictment of 42 people for murder due to neglect of building and health code regulations. The effects of this disaster is still being felt across the fashion industry, but too few brands have a strong enough stance to only use factories with safe and fair working conditions. Here a few that you can get your fashion fix from and feel pretty damn good about yourself at the same time.
Greetings and salutations. I'm someone who has worked in fashion before as both a model and a consultant. Though the fashion industry is known for being very welcoming of LGBTQ individuals, the mainstream fashion world still has a lot of work to do in order to be fully equal.
I'm a huge fan of fashion myself and my all-time favorite brand, Chanel, really struck me with their styles and choices of color and materials. I love everything from the brand's purses to their fragrances... even though I can barely afford any of it. I always thought Chanel was classy and timeless with their designs. I also know that Coco Chanel is the creator behind the brand and loved how Chanel is a true feminine brand. I learned it's okay to be feminine through her fashion. However, I wanted to understand more about Coco's motives and inspirations.
Feminism has always been a big topic in society for women and has grown exponentially with the 21st century. But what people don’t realize is that it’s always a part of humanity.
Looking and feeling beautiful/fashionable is the general wish of many people. From the type of clothes worn to matching adornments and hair tips, almost everyone is always in search for that one tip that gives their appearance a boost. Now, in this day and age of instant messaging and social media, you can get almost all your fashion consultation from famous fashion stylists on Instagram.
Streetwear is one of the most intimidating fashion genres out there simply because of how rapidly it evolves. One moment, a streetwear style is deemed "classic"; the next minute, it seems like the very brand that designed it is going out of business. Saying that streetwear is a cutthroat industry is an understatement.
The fashion industry is one which is hard to predict, to say the very least. It’s one that involves a lot of marketing, even when your keen eye for aesthetics is undeniably awesome. With some designers, all the effort they put in to make a new set of clothes ends up being for naught. Many, many designers end up being forgotten and thrown to the wayside.
For around 25 years of my life, I was hiding a long-term secret. Even my closest family members didn't know. I dressed in dresses. I wore makeup. I had boobs. But, despite all these things, I wasn't comfortable. I didn't feel comfortable as a girl.
Fashion is a form of art that gives everyone the privilege to express and define themselves through what they wear. Many women out there use fashion to show their true colors, be confident and courageous, and never listen to those who judge their style in clothing. Women, even today, aren't being treated as how they should be, and it's really unfortunate. There were crazy things women couldn't do 50 years ago, and we've come a long way. So you'd think in 2018 that us women would feel like we're equal in this world, but there are still so many cases that we aren't. Our appearance, profession, and overall presence are constantly being criticized without giving us a break.
Anyone who has ever been part of a music scene can tell you that clothing is a huge part of showing your love for bands. It goes beyond merchandise too. Truth be told, music and fashion branding really do go hand in hand.
While a lot of artists have been branded by the concept of misunderstood genius, I doubt that Kanye is one of them.
