Two students of Academy of Art University have won the 2018 CFDA. There were many factors to the decision. One of the major factors is the thoughts towards diversity and inclusiveness. After all, this is a world that is fighting to have the rights of all human beings recognized. This is also a fight so that more forms of fashion can be recognized. One of the most common issues in fashion is that there are people that are trying to dictate what others wear as if they are the authority in fashion. This often results in bullying and even insinuations about a certain person.
One thing about fashion is that it is starting to be more about the individual expression. People not only like to look at the designs that are displayed on the runways and other events, but they also like to wonder how it would feel to wear these items. Fortunately, inclusiveness and diversity was the theme of the event. The participants were recognized and appreciated for the contributions they have made to the event. Some of the items have turned out to be award winning items for the two best designers. Others were recognized for their contributions as well.
One of the common factors that make fashion interesting for Academy of Art University and other people is the risk factor. For many people, taking risk with fashion means stepping outside of one’s own comfort zone. This can be very uncomfortable to the point of being scary for some people. People who know their style are not that common. Therefore, when they experiment, they are going to be treading on scary surfaces. However, the most important thing for them to remember is that when they are wearing these designs, they are wearing them for themselves for the most part.
