Fashionably Forward Video Episode 2

This is the second episode of Fashionably Forwards video segments.  I interviewed Katie Carter, a senior Graphic design major to see what inspires her style.  As a fashion risk-taker, Carter says she loves the eighties and considers it her go to fashion era. She enjoys wearing bright colors and heels.  A collective of fashions from the 1950’s to the 1980’s inspires her “mod” minimalist chic look.  Her closet serves as a sort of time machine cataloging all the fashion decades that inspire Carter. As a kid in middle school, Carter says she was addicted to Nick at Nite, watching all the reruns of many classic television series and slowly constructing her retro style.  Carter’s look is an ode feminine fashion through pop culture.  Her ultimate style Icon is Lucile ball From the I love Lucy show.  Katie says that Lucy shows a fun quirky side of fashion; wearing polka dots and puffy doll dresses. The comedic style of the I love Lucy show is reflected in, Lucy’s flirty, fun, and chic wardrobe choices.  The bright red lipsticks from the fifties and the futuristic shoulder pads of the eighties inspire Carter to create a fusion of multi-generational clothing.

Be inspired

Peace. Love. and Fashion
