New York Fashion Week Fall 2016 Preview – Vogue

In addition to the questions in the subheading, this article also asks “What’s the point of fashion week, today?” (And then they cop out in typical no-content fashion journalism style, by saying: “The answer is up for grabs.”)
It might be worth spending about half the term discussing that…

The end of an era? That means the beginning of a new one – except in this industry…

Over 30 years she created some of US Vogue’s most exciting and influential photo spreads, but now Grace Coddington has stepped aside. Is this a turning point for the industry?

Zeitgist Analysis 2

I want to focus more on how the media influences fashion and our society. Every day we are surrounded by media whether it be the television, social media (twitter, instagram, pinterest, etc.) so we are bound to want to follow in foot steps of celebrities we see on these outlets. I always find myself on social media or watching TV judging what that person is wearing and I think everyone does that without even thinking about it first. For example, Kim Kardashian is now a huge fashion icon. Her and her sisters have their own clothing line being sold in stores and they even have their own boutiques in select cities (DASH). The Kardashians are literally everywhere in the media, you will most likely never see a magazine without one of them in it whether it be on what their wearing or just a simple picture of them. As we observe the media, we are also absorbing information on certain styles that we like. Everyone does it, once we see fashion icons wearing something it becomes a trend because everyone wants to look a certain way or as I said before, follow in the steps of celebrities or people that we look up to each and every day. kim-kardashian-300

Adam Zeitgeist 2

To support my first post about Zeitgeist I will use an example of Sports.  After a sports event, during the press conference players from both teams will be interviewed and asked questions about the games. However, this is after they have showered and cleaned up and put on their outfits.  Millions of people see these professional idols of theirs wearing rich and very high quality clothing or it may be sweatpants and a hoodie. Either or, the fascination with the individual player will cause their fans to want to copy their clothing and even ways of living such as eating or entertainment activities or playing the sport the professional plays.  These athletes like Tom Brady and Lebron James have such a huge influence on society through clothing but through accessories as well like head phones and music they listen to.  The public jumps on these opportunities during personal interviews and press conferences to become more like their idols through these categories. It doesn’t even need to be American professionals.  Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo, all amazing professional soccer players overseas get imitated with the cleats they wear and the music they listen to by American all around the country.  Its the fixation with the superstar that causes these actions that correspond to the Zeitgeist map under more than one category.  These figures are also copied with hairstyles, facial hair and attitude as well as clothing.   Brady lebron-james-fake-glasses-and-stragically-placed-headphones ronaldo
