WAYW | Why Are You Wearing?

About |

An introspective multimedia project where everyday people share in conversation why they wear what they wear.

There’s an emphasis on “everyday people” because in today’s world there is a central focus on being famous and or receive a lot of attention to be validated and to matter.  I’m interviewing individuals who appear confident and appear comfortable in what they are wearing and not discomfort.  I ask them to describe what it is that they are wearing, from the top of their head to their feet and why. I take a photograph of they are wearing or ask them to provide a photo that they believe is a good representation of how they dress. In doing so, they go into more depth about their likes, preferences, and dislikes, how they pick clothing, etc.

Project Takeaways |

I learned how to have a conversation with people about why they wore what they wore, what they think about when it comes to getting dressed, how they feel in it, what they look for when procuring new pieces and much more. I will definitely make sure to continue to have these types of conversations with others as I continue onward.
