Culture has had such a immense input within the fashion industry over time, materials such as tartan, safari scarfs etc. have been involved amongst the highest of fashion brands.
The term ‘Culture’ can mean a lot of things, but in this case, I am going to refer it to a group of people, who have either the same beliefs, or follow the same rules. The point I am trying to prove is that the group of people all have the same characteristics, and this is when fashion is involved.
When splitting up humanity in to the style of clothing they wear, the outcome is guaranteed to lead in to several groups, each individual group share the same characteristics, whether it is for religious purposes, “individuality” purposes or even purposes that are based around reputation. This leads us on to the subject of individuality and stereotypical.
What makes fashion unique to any other industry, is it never ends. Fashion never goes out of “Fashion” it simply reintroduces itself again in upcoming eras, by this I mean when fashion starts to out date, a new style is bought in to the world eventually leading back to it’s original self but obviously with the few modifications.
The term individuality in my opinion has never meant nothing within the world of fashion, it is something that lasts for a minimal amount of time of which will inevitably lead to the outcome of ‘stereotypical.’
Fashion also brings a new sense to humanity, clothing has the ability to reveal the true side to any sort of person, whether this involves homosexuality, cross dressing, it is able to bring the confidence out amongst anyone.
I have decided to drift away from this idea, I really didn’t like the outcome of the test shoot from the original idea, so I have decided whilst I have the time, I am going to completely change the assignment.
My secondary idea was to produce a set of images within the studio with a model. I am going to begin by researching in to the ideas I have on my chosen theme. I am going to produce Beauty styled images, as it’s one of the genres that interests me most, and understand enough about it to produce the style of imagery. It is just a case of finding the right stylist and model to help me achieve this.
