The Art of Fashion

In every direction I look, I find inspiration. London is filled with creative minds, and I feel so lucky to be a small part of this city. The other day, my friends and I ventured through Marylebone to the Makers House, part of Burberry’s show to present their September line. Although I am most definitely not a fashion guru or fanatic of any sort, I was happy to be there. I was in awe of the creativity, motivation, and hard work that went in to creating these looks. Finding inspiration in Virginia Woolf’s Orlando [1928], the Elizabethan era, and more, Burberry created an incredible collection of art. For example, one of their patterns was created to match a blueprint of gardens from a historic location and another was based upon an old sample of tile. In addition to representing the inspiration found in old London, Burberry has created a line that allows for men and women to shop and wear pieces of clothing the same. Although the looks were shown by male and female models, some of the pieces are meant to be shared and worn between both genders.

After studying Media, Race, and Gender, specifically the issues and topics related to gender in the media, I found their ideas fascinating. I may not have chosen fashion as my medium of choice, but I love the meanings, messages, and importance behind the creation of this line; I was simply in awe. I only hope that one day I will be able to share my inspirations and ideas with the world in the forms of writing, photography, and beyond.
