Fashion in the Real World?
This is the story of twelve students
who we at the Daily picked to model
together for two weeks - to find out
whathappens when people stop being
polite - and start getting real.
The Real World. Hmm.
Time out fashion fans. "The Real
World" is nothing but a non-defini-
tive sound byte (a redundant phrase if
ever there was one). Typical MTV
speak. We don't buy it.Push yourself
to examine your definition of real,
and your definition of the world, and
then it becomes something else. Is the
"real world,"as MTV would like us to
believe,a bunchof twentysomethings
put up in a post-modernized apart-
ment where the camera never leaves
And ask yourself this: is the real
world a bunch of students dressed up
in borrowed clothes trying not to get
dirty? It's been our real world for the
past month, but we won't try to tell
you that it's yours.
Fashion falls into the same unde-
finable category as the "real world."
What is fashion? Is it what Cindy
Crawford wears on House of Style?
What the Bongo Man wears as he
spins his poetry on North University?
Or is it what our models picked out to
wear on the following pages? It is all
of these. And it is none of them.
It would be distorted and overly
p.c. to say that everything is fashion-
able. But itis neitherof those things to
say that every article of clothing -
every choker, every velvet pantsuit,
every cowboy hat-is fashion. Fash-
ion is what you wear. "Fashionable"
is simply a time constraint imposed
on fashion by the clothing industry.
With that in mind, examine the
following pages. Look not only at the
clothing on the bodies, but at the
locations, the activities, the facial
expressions. These don't contribute
to the fashion, but they have been
chosen with our sensibilities toward
the fashionable. And Fashionable is
key in the Real World. Or is it?
Fall Fashion is a collaborative ef-
fort on part of the Photography, Arts
and Display staffs, and would not
have been possible without the help
of a lot of non-Daily people as well.
We would like to thank all of the
stores who were gracious enough to
lend us their clothing: U. Produc-
tions, Fantasy Attic Costume Shop,
Bivouac, Hudson's, Light Wraps Vin-
tage Clothing, Orchid Lane, Harry's
Army Surplus, Banana Republic,
Collected Works, Carl Sterr, Van
Boven, Wilderness Outfitters and the
jewelery designs of Michelle Chase.
Thanks toAmer's for lending us their
roof and table space. Special thanks
to all our wonderful models.
And finally, thanks to all our read-
ers. For creating the fashion, deciding
on the fashionable, and molding and
remolding the real world. Whatever
that may be.
