Do you ever recall having an assignment in History, Government, or English class where you had to come up with a thesis or essay regarding what the USA meant to you? Who are modern day Americans? Where do they come from? What is their Story? Well for much of us now in modern times we are born here but there is a whole entire system implemented through our government programs to grant opportunities of citizenship from other countries and nations to diversify and promote economic growth. Thousands of international citizens are naturalized or receive asylum every year here in the USA. What they bring with them is their history and culture. This Fashion Show is representation of Designers that come from diverse backgrounds . They will show you their past ( history), their present( modernism), and their Future in Fashion and life style alike. You see, we may all be American which is its own culture in itself but we all came from something else. There is a story behind every one of us and this show enables the designer to reveal that. Each designer will have the opportunity to show at least 3 to 9 designs with the choice of their own models. Their designs can be created from scratch or multi-purposed through up-cycling. Designers have a simple process to follow from either illustration to sewing or pattern to sewing and that is purely up to them as Artists. Designers are greatly encouraged to be Creative and to think out of the box for their future lifestyle designs. They can also utilize research for accuracy on historical fashions that may directly influence their showcase. In reference to Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream Speech: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character.” Can a Life Style or diverse Culture reflect ones Character? How can we show the best character as Americans through our Style and Fashion? This is a thought for all participants left to ponder during the show.
