    I'm a fashion design major at a decent good school in the states, and I got into fashion and literature towards the end of high school. I'm definitely looking to learn more from these forums and actually dig in. As far as designers go, I'm really into Raf right now, I've been doing a lot of research especially now that the house has closed. I've been looking into 20471120, Julius, Ader Error, and Undercover/Undercoverism as of late, and I actually just picked up some aw02 Raf corduroy pants.

    I've lurked for a little while but I figured I should actually join and see if there's anyone still active around.

    Hello all my name is Richard, I joined the forum not too long ago with plans of becoming more involved here rather than lurking around but that never took place instead I would seldom visit but when I did I would spend hours on end digging through the forum. Planning on utilizing the platform more so I thought it best to introduce myself. I live in Brooklyn and work as an assistant pattern maker for an artisanal designer that most of you are likely familiar with. My biggest interest outside of garment making would be heavy music, Ive played the drums from a young age and am involved with the punk and underground music scene here in Brooklyn. I look forward to dialoguing with you all.-Richard

    Hello,
    Sideshow here. Not a bot, just yet. I'm hoping that I can partake in bionic augmentation one day, though, only 22, so there is time!
    I'm going to continue being a ghost and reading as much as I can. You will see me soon.
    Goodbye

    It makes me very happy to see new people joining here and taking the time and joy to write out why. Forum culture is clearly long dead, but the forum spirit still burns inside a few.

    Hello all,

    My name is Angel Arriaga, I am a Music Producer first, teacher second. Currently in university for Technology Dev. and Management, only reason being to be more of a patron to the designers I love, while also being able to support myself sufficiently. Anyways, I am 22 years old and my pronouns are he/him. I have always been fascinated by the idea of fashion as wearable art. Throughout my younger adolescent years I always used fashion as a form of self-expression, looking up to my Mom for my style direction. Growing up as a boy in a non-metropolitan area in Florida, USA, raised by a single mom from New York City, any article of clothing deviating from typical gender norms often was brought with attention or confusion from my peers. Even a cheap simple long cardigan from H&M got some attention. That was totally fine with me, and I was mostly unbothered as I always knew to be confident. Some benefits of me standing out, along with my niche interests, were that it really narrowed down who my friends were. Often those from the bunch who would gravitate towards me were more expressive, interesting and progressive individuals. In highschool, I went through my phase of faux-streetstyle being churned out by your typical fast fashion conglomerates.

    Then I got CDG Play Converse.

    Only down hill from there, as those infamous shoes are the gateway drug for many people. That was my first year of college, when I was also self-introduced to Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela. From there I got into typical minimal menswear and "elevated basics": overcoat, white shirt, black/grey trousers, Common Projects look. I would sit at this minimal/street wardrobe for a year or so, getting more quality pieces from Uniqlo, Y-3 Sneakers and then splurged on a a blush pink Lemaire longsleeve (that I still have today). My first introduction to my new fashion direction was a pair of Stone Island Shadow Project Boots from SS17 that I luckily found the only existing second-hand listing of and I absolutely love them to this day. It was end of 2019 start of 2020 where I truly developed my fashion knowledge and personal style. I read more books, magazines and articles about anything fashion, from streetwear to avant-garde. I purchased a perfect condition old CDGH+ 88' Pants at the start of the year and trended towards a mix of minimal/darkwear, wearing mostly black and white with the occasional pop of blush pink.

    Today I look up to the work of Yohji Yamamoto, Elena Dawson and Ann Demeulemeester as my main forms of inspiration, mixed with the more minimal silhouettes of Jil Sander and Lemaire. I am currently gravitating towards the more texture focused avant-garde fashion like the works of Isabel Benenato, Carol Christian Powell and Forme D'expression. I joined Style Zeitgeist to further learn and converse about my favorite brands and uncover more information and history of the designers, artisans and tailors I love so dearly with like minded individuals.

    I look forward to meeting everyone here and gaining more knowledge!

    -Angel
