Article ideation and research!
I know I want to discuss the fashion displayed by Milwaukee Artists, specifically MIAD students, but I'm not quite sure what to ask my subjects, nor what insight I will gain from my conversations with them. I'd love to have a variety of styles portrayed in my article- the artist who dresses in only black, the artist who accessorizes to the max, the artist who doesn't care what they wear- which is still technically a "look".
What does our look say about us? Does it align with who we are as creatives? Does it contradict the work we create?
Who are my favorite inclusive fashion icons that I would love to interview?
Rihanna- Fenty. Rihanna produced a fashion show that featured people of all genders and sizes. Her colors are bright and the cuts are bold. This show was revolutionary as it was much more than a fashion show, it was 100000% performance art.
Jaden and Willow Smith- Their styles are both wild and simple. Some days they wear extreme oversized clothes, others they wear outfits tailored to their body. They play around with hair styles, eye brow bleaching, piercings, shoes, and also nonconventional accessories- boxed water, backpacks, pets (in a good way) etc.
Billy Poter- He is an actor that is very well known for being one of the first men to wear a dress on the red carpet. He also plays around with bold hats and accessories. I like Billy because he has the perfect attitude to match his bold, confident looks.
Young Thug- Young Thug got a lot of heat for wearing a dress on his album cover, but I found it to be edgy. The color scheme was beautiful, the textures of materials held visual interest, and the overall image was extremely artistic. I like when entertainers take artistic risks.
