You Are What You Choose To Wear
You Are What You Choose To Wear is a publication that illustrates the conflict of the aspect of fashion in self-expression and how society uses it as a form of stereotyping. In society, there are standards that sometimes we drift off into that dictates what we wear. For some of us, fashion is something that we use to represent ourselves. When these two aspects come into one place, they cause a conflict. In the 1940s and so on, women had set standards on what to wear and what not wear. You are what you choose to wear takes images and texts from a late 1940s book, "Fabrics and Dresses" to illustrate this conflict. While the white pages represent fashion as a tool for self-expression, the black pages represent fashion as society's perspective and standards.
