Fashion Week FW17 : The Inspiration
My favorite part of fashion week is discovering the inspiration behind a collection, as it contextualizes a garment within an artistic narrative that is usually lost on an industry so defined by material.
In addition to trends in the traditional sense—fall 2017 wardrobes will be saturated with 80s renaissance, corsets and frills—the shows this year were full of socio-cultural and political statements. Political commentary, millennial persuasion, seasonal blending, racial, body and age diversity pulsated through the runways.
Inspiration still arose from the conventional sources: lifestyles, cultures, experiences, nature elements, visual and performing arts.
But regardless of its source, inspiration exposes artistry. Unpacking the various inspirations behind one of the most modern, pivotal seasons situates mere clothing within a larger, more dynamic narrative.
