The premise of my fashion moment was hearing about a woman who kept a fashion diary of what she wore everyday so she would never wear the same thing twice. As a kid I was so used to trying really hard to fit in but never seeming to get the popularity thing right that hearing about someone who cared about being different everyday was a much needed change of pace. In the three videos that followed mine, I found the same overwhelming need to fit into a group. The first two videos were by girls, one who just had to have Diesel Jeans as a teenager to fit in, and the other who also needed trendy pants to show her bullies that she was just like them. The third video was by a male, and instead of naming a particular “uniform,” a term he used to describe a style worn by a particular clique, he was more or less an observer of how fashion helps you identify with one group or another. The interesting thing about the girls’ videos was that they no longer cared about those pants that they so desperately needed to fit in. They changed their tune from needed to conform to having their own image that identified who they were, which was very much the message that I was trying to project in my video. I think its an excellent point that females struggle with fitting in during their formative years because girls can be incredibly cruel. Sometimes its easier to blend in than to stand out.
