It’s the most wonderful time of the year… MET Gala! Readers, you know pumped up this night is for fashion lovers like me. It’s the most fashiony-fashion night on the entire fashion calendar. The event is the kick off fundraiser for the MET’s Costume Institute. It’s a fantastical night full of celebrities, fashion, and fighting over the choices of the first two.
What.Is.Going.On? What’s going on is that women continue to be the victims of unwanted physical – and sexual – contact right out in public. During the holiest of times: Fashion Week. In most cases the assault occurs but goes without penalty.
As much as I love the summer I welcome the fall for one reason only. No it’s not the basic pumpkin spiced lattes that beige people love so dang much that get me going; it’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Bring on the runway style, the street style, and the festivities.
I watched the new Kanye video/ Balmain ad and I liked it. It was not like so many other artist’s generic music videos. I was actually interested in it. I may be biased: thrilling visuals, diverse models in beautiful clothes walking in slow otion all set in black and white is so, so, so my jelly. Plus, Sia was featured.
It’s that time again. It’s New York Fashion Week. While the streets are flooded with the usual fashion community, a newer movement, too, is hitting the streets. Designers, models, stylists and supporters flooded Times Square for the #PlusIsEqual Lane Bryant event. The campaign is calling for support in representation of all sizes of women in fashion. Excuse the forthcoming location pun, but I think it’s much overdue in terms of time.
Being the somewhat rational person I am I thought to myself, “Just how big of a deal is she?” I took a look at some of the numbers available and here is what I found. The DailyMail.co.uk (take the source with a grain of salt please) notes 40 walking appearances in various shows this past season. Her net worth is reported at $1 million as of March 2014. It is also worth mentioning that Cara has a namesake Mulberry Collection with the fashion brand. A gal with her own designer bag? That means something.
You may ask why does diversity in fashion matter to me? Well, bluntly put, I am bored of seeing the same old same. I invite designers and brands to wake me up and shock me with something new not only with the fashion but the women and men who wear that fashion. I welcome designers and brands to show me, a consumer, their proposed future. Brands have the opportunity to create whatever products they like and for whomever. Do it then. Show me your vision. Try not to put me to sleep.
