Trends have a way of recycling themselves. It’s true in cars. It’s true in music. And of course it’s true in fashion. Leave it up to Molly Park to make an infographic out of it! Molly notices the ironic similarities between the hippies of the 1970’s and the hipsters currently scavaging our urban landscape. Did I mention I love infographics? xoxo Amanda.
We recently had the priviledge to photograph a innovative event. The Michigan Chapter of the International Interior Design Association held their Finish to Fashion show earlier this month. The show was intended to show off interior design fabrics and techniques, not in the showroom, but on the runway.
Teams competed for best design based on international cities. The event was a fantastic way to demonstrate the talents of these obviously multi-faceted designers! Check out some more pics from the event
Sometimes information about fashion can be as sleek and beautiful as the articles themselves.

The recent faux controversies about current First Lady Michelle Obama deciding to go sleeveless in her official portrait may very well have more to do with global warming then fashion choice. Looking back at the wardrobe of choice in First Lady’s official portraits throughout history, a disturbing trend seems to emerge. First Lady attire is in direct response to increasing global temperatures!
1. Jane Pierce. Consider that it would be 35 years until gasoline-fueled internal combustion engines were widely introduced when Mrs. Pierce served as First Lady. With a lack of lung choking smog from such an diabolical engine, the earth must have been a cold place to reside. Her response, naturally, was to wear tightly buttoned layers of black with warmth retaining head cover.
2. Eleanor Roosevelt. By 1933 the Golden Gate bridge was to begin construction, and automobiles blanketed the United States. With New Deal policies going into effect, the nations first stimulus package begins belching out more and more greenhouse gases. In response, Mrs. Roosevelt sports a ventilation promoting a blouse with a breezy plunging neck line.
3. Pat Nixon. Carbon emissions continue to rise and so does the temperature. However, 1969 brings us the beginning of the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer. In order to combat this two threat front, Mrs. Nixon turns to light, airy fabrics with maximum coverage from UV rays.
4. Michelle Obama. By 2009, industrial progress in developing countries have laid waste to the natural environment, causing a skyrocketing spike in CO2 emissions. As the media and activists have all but abandoned the cause for the precious ozone layer and dangerous UV light, Mrs. Obama takes the necessary step to reduce her body temperature in our global crock pot by going sleeveless.
