Diversity: An Imperative Part of Fashion

Have you ever thought about how easy it would be to throw something on in the morning and not think about it? People in different countries or students attending certain schools go through with this routine every morning, but are actually ordered to wear something mundane or standard. The power to wear what I want every day excites and inspires me- what if I could not wear what I wanted? One does not realize how diverse each of us are and how it affects what we wear and how we function every day.

Diversity is what makes each of us who we are. It is not just what affects our outfits of the day, it is what drives us to communicate and function how we do. Without diversity I like to think that the world would be plain, more desolate, and boring. Diversity is more than just clothes and can add different ideas, sometimes issues, to the workplace, but these are topics that are important to discuss throughout one’s day. I believe that the world needs diversity, just like I need to accessorize and choose a certain pair of shoes in the morning.

If I look at certain NYFW collections, I can tell usually what designer is being featured, with one exception. Rodarte is a brand designed by two sisters, Kate and Laura Mullcavy, and shows eclectic and diverse collections each season that tell stories. Sometimes the stories are cultural and sometimes they are inspired by books or works of art. Each season features different social and cultural pieces that depict a diverse show. One can see the differences between last year’s Spring collection versus this year’s…
