I’ve often mulled over the idea of starting my own tee shirt line, modifying jeans for a living, or just adding extra embellishments to my gear.
I'm already missing summer! Such a beautiful display of clothing pieces, props, color use & inspiration at this year's Spring’s & Summer's collection! We're now in the Fall-Winter Season collection. I’ve already seen a couple of collections and I'm already late in giving my reviews for them. Just recently I discovered the spring-summer 2019 collection dropped just a few months ago but here we go still!
Avant garde designers break the rules of what clothing is supposed to be, throwing design books for beginners to the wayside as they revolutionize the industry. When done right, it should shake the world that it is commenting on, using unlikely materials and technical skill to create wearable art. To the untrained eye, the avant garde may appear to be anti-fashion; but to those in the know, it’s far ahead of the times.
Mainstream fashion is nice for most, but if you really want to be able to grab attention, you can't rely on Abercrombie & Fitch to carry you. A little bit of alternative style can do a lot for your wardrobe, your vibe, and also the way people see you.
Fashion, if nothing else, has become a major indicator of who you are and what you're about. A person who doesn't really care about appearances will typically opt for comfy sweats or plain black clothing. People who are eccentric will often wear clothing that matches that look.
As the bad-boy of fashion is increasingly co-opted by the luxury market, it’s perhaps important to remind ourselves of streetwear's roots, intrinsic values, and the man whom many say started the whole thing in the first place—Shawn Stussy.
Dolls Kill is one of the most rapidly-growing online stores in the world, and it's growing because it's one of the only stores of its kind. It's a retail store that's edgy for the sake of being edgy, often going further than most fashion fans will dare to go.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) began in 1943, and a lot has changed in the fashion world since then. Instead of holding each show on the same runway, they are placed all over New York City outside and on rooftops. Inclusivity is more important than ever, and the runway is the best place to represent that.
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.
