Anyways, similar to my previous fashion month round up post, I thought I'd share my favourite street style outfits I came across. As you know, (or don't know - maybe you're new here, so hi), one of my majors is art history. One of my classes, Fashions and Textiles is held at the Royal Ontario Museum. The beginning of the second half of the semester, we started learning about the history of fashion. I've been really excited for this portion of the course because it was the main reason I signed up for it. In the first class in the fashion section, my professor mentioned Barbara Johnson's Album of Styles and Fabrics.
Barbara Johnson lived in the mid 18th century to the beginning of the 19th century. She kept a record of clothing she wore but also included specific information like the cost, fabric swatches and yards of cloth needed to make her clothing items. She also provided images from fashion magazines. During the time she was alive, fashion underwent a huge change. There were specific developments in silhouettes and trends throughout the 19th century.
For this street style round up, I wanted to do something similar. I mean, it's essentially the same idea Barbara Johnson had - keeping track of current trends and fabrics. I wanted to make it a bit more modern by using programs like Photoshop but also keep it in an album format - almost as if it was scanned onto your computer. The reason I chose to do this with the street style of fashion month instead is because I get more inspired by those looks than the runway looks. I apologize for the lengthy introduction but this is the very first in my "Creative's Corner" section on my blog where I will continue to show fashion-related (or other) posts but in a way where I apply the inspiration I get from everywhere.
