    Hello, I'm currently a student in a fashion university. Not sure what I want to do yet but fashion has captivated me for as long as I can remember.

    I've known SZ for about two years now. Big fan of what's going on here, even if forum culture is in seemingly eternal hibernation. I used to participate in a lot of vBulletin forums and really enjoyed it, so it's a shame to be joining SZ just now. We hear a lot these days in the fashion industry about having a conversation and discussing 'what we truly care' about but it always feels like bullshit. I actually think forums would be really good, since there's anonymity, community, and discussion, but that's just my opinion. I also think a lot of young people would be interested in this but just don't really know it exists since we've been using Instagram for so long now.

    As for fashion, my tastes are basically the threads you find in the designers section. My favourites in no order are Yohji, GBS, and Rick. My hobbies are reading and photography. Big fan of Baudrillard, and of course Matthew Reeves (check the avatar). I used to write about fashion as a creative outlet in high school as well, but now just keep most of my writing to myself since I don't want to deal with the flak in uni. Recently, I've been thinking about how the fashion industry's growing reliance on China in the covid era will mean more and more moral and political questions the industry will have to deal with. Also thinking about Amazon Fashion. God save us.

    Anyways, glad to be here. Thanks for keeping the forum up, E.

    Glad to have you, Monologue. And you are totally and sadly right - would be cool to have more young kids here. Feel free to hit me up on IG or whenever to talk fashion directly, but here is always a great place. If you dig deeper, there are so many good topics one could contribute to.

    hi, I’m Rina! I’m 21, though I have definitely lurked here along with a number of other similar forums since I was a young teenager, and I don’t know why I never actually made an account until now…! I was a ~theater kid~ in high school & got into sewing/construction through costuming, an interest that was always intertwined with my fashion obsession, nurtured by forums like this and Tumblr way back when lol. I’m lucky to have a lot of friends and a partner that are all similarly into fashion (though it can be super hard on my wallet… they are a bit too encouraging when it comes to “should i buy this?” questions, lol), but love talking with others about it in general..

    I like reading about fashion/fashion history (institutional access to magazine archives was a blessing) & writing about fashion (and the culture-or-cultures around fashion), especially in the context of the Internet - the growth of the Instagram/Grailed fashion bro crowd, influencer culture/aesthetics, & so many things following the logic of memes, lol. I have written and published some fashion writing in that vein, and after having finished undergrad (I majored in English & minored in art history+museum studies), I’m really interested in applying to fashion & textile/critical studies/history programs, especially ones with a focus on preservation-conservation side of things.. my other archival focus is the Internet, especially pre- (or non-)social media content/art…

    I work for a luxury consignment shop atm so I find myself looking at all kinds of designer clothing pretty much all day now, but my favorite designers are Hussein Chalayan and Helmut Lang - Helmut pre-2005, obviously (I almost-routinely track secondhand listings for the old womenswear & actually have quite a few things to document & post in the archive thread). and I of course really like Jil Sander, Dries Van Noten, Veronique Branquinho, Martin Margiela, & most of the designers that already have threads in the Designers and their Work subforum lol. but I’m also a big fan of Gaultier, Mugler, Pierre Cardin, Alexander McQueen. & (more recently) the sometimes-funny trashy-glam of Tom Ford at Gucci, and many more… newer labels that I’m really interested in include Wales Bonner, Telfar, Craig Green (if he counts - maybe not so new? lol), & Bode. I love vintage clothing, too, especially from the 60s.

    I like electronic music (love techno, miss raves/parties/getting ready to go out/dancing with friends), reading (love Jean Genet, Ishmael Reed, Pynchon), pop culture history. & perfume; being inside has made me a fragrance freak. This post is already crazy long/I'm talking too much about myself, but I'm happy to be here!! :)

    Hey everyone,

    I'm a fashion student living in Perth, Australia and have been checking the forums every now and then for a few years but i'm finally deciding to post!
    I've always loved clothing for as long as I remember, but more specifically I was always obsessed with getting 'the perfect fit' and whenever I saw someone wearing someone I would try and break down what it was I liked about their outfit and how they got it to fit so well or trying to figure out "how did they do that". Pattern making is obviously my favourite class ;)

    Iv'e always had a love for things that are well made and high quality and often found that in the most unlikely places and often in fashion..

    I'm hoping to start a label when I finish college using with hand dyed & woven fabrics, and also sell sewing patterns - but who knows where things will take me, I also thought it could be good to get some experience in the industry for a few years too.

    Guidi bought me to SZ ;)

    Some of my favourite designers are: MATKA, Suzuki Takayuki, Atelier Baba, Samuel Snider, Paul Harnden, Archivio J.M Ribot, Elena Dawson, Universal Utility, Ziggy Chen & ESS LAB

    Thanks for having me and hope to speak to some of you soon

    A xo

    Hi Isaac here. I've browsed the forum before, but only recently joined. I've become increasingly interested in fashion journalism as a path forward for my own life, and I'm hoping that I can have discussions with folks here and just learn and engage with this online community!

    I've dressed in many different styles but the most significant experience I've had with fashion has been with the work of Yohji Yamamoto. I travelled to Japan in 2017 in part to find his clothing and bring some back with me. It was the first clothing that showed me the power of fashion, and that fashion was interrogating lived human experience just like any other form of art. Wearing Yohji has shown me these little pieces of who I am, and how I'm most comfortable representing myself to the world.

    Since then, I've been reordering my wardrobe, mostly with Yohji, and occasional pieces of CDG, Rick Owens, Julius, Dries Van Noten, Undercover, etc. Right now I'm going through a huge wardrobe shift. I'm selling off a lot of clothing and purchasing pieces to replace them. Strangely, I think I'm finding my style again, or refining my style. It was always something I thought I had, but it's shifting right now, and underneath these shifts and this binge purge cycle of my wardrobe, I'm finding something else. The things I want in my life are enhanced by clothing. Some sort of psychic stability and cohesion is proffered. But fashion is still just one piece of my life, and the clothes are showing me that it's time to grow again in other areas of my life left untended.
