Gas Masks, Stilettos, and Designer Jeans: A Story of Fashion and Our Lives

0

CultureMob.com likes to cover unusual events like pillow fights and power tool races, so how about a fashion show that promises to plunge into the world of Seattle fashion, oxymoron which that might be?

The Fashion Group International and Seattle Pacific University’s Fashion Group have joined together for Gas Masks, Stilettos, and Designer Jeans: A Story of Fashion and Our Lives. This fundraising event, taking place Saturday May 31 at 6PM, will take a look at the role that fashion plays in each of our lives along with music, food, shopping, and raffle prizes. Culturally determined and identity confirming, the clothes we wear are much more than the sum of their threads. 

Gas Masks, Stilettos, and Designer Jeans will illuminate the role that fashion plays in our lives through four themes: fashion as military power and oppression, fashion as environment, fashion as religion, and fashion as social justice. Put on by a zealous group of student fashionistas, this event will surely raise more questions than it answers- but questions are more fun anyway, right?

I have never owned a pair of designer jeans and the only gas mask experience I’ve had was certainly not of the chemical warfare variety, but I am guilty (as my feet attest) of subjecting myself to the torture device that are stilettos. I am not sure how exactly fashion can be social justice- but this is exactly why I should hit up this event, held at Seattle Pacific University.
