& Everything Relates to Fashion

From historical events to scientific discoveries  to pop culture..... everything relates to fashion

My art history professor once argued that she could relate anything and anyone to fashion, as to which one of my classmates replied "How about Amelia Earhart?" .....turns out Amelia Earhart had her own design line at Macy's back in the day. Point Proven.

With all this in mind, I have recently been wondering how androgyny came to be such an influence in the fashion relm nowadays. Menswear is a huge influence on the womenswear looks of today. From high-end to H&M, everyone's doing it.  After learning/researching corsets of the 1800s and 1900s while comparing them today's fashion, I became intensely intrigued about how the corsetted woman of the 1800s has become the free-boobin' lady of the 21st century.

Lucky for me, the Fashion Institute of Technology recently revealed their newest exhibition "A Queer History of Fashion": a tale of how lesbian and gay culture has transformed fashion throughout the ages as well as celebrating the life of all of the gay and lesbian designers (and socialites) of the past and present.

For my Illustration Methods class at University of the Arts, I was given a dream assignment,

Ever love a painting so much that you want to dress like it? ...me too.

Body suits. Body contour. Enhancing a woman's natural features. My latest design project....

Some amazing movies have been hitting the box office this month, carried by some of the most fashionable women in the film industry. Get some of their street style looks for less.

Yesterday, I received these beauts in the mail. And I gotta tell ya, these spiked saddle shoes is like my family.

Anything that is worth it in the end never comes easy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun getting there.
