we wear culture by google

the other day, i (laura) came across a very interesting segment on style, fashion, and culture by google! there are some really cool exclusive video’s from different museums all over the world, including the metropolitan museum of art, museo salvatore ferragamo, kyoto costume institute, and others that showcase different designers, style icons, traditional dressings, and conservation tactics. seriously, everyone needs to check this out! it is so cool. i feel like i can’t fully sum it up- there is just so much in this segment!!!

one of my favorite parts of the segment is the piece on all different fashion icons and designers that have changed the way we view style and fashion today. Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 1.53.16 PM.png

another really cool part highlights the fashion forward movements/groups that have made a big difference in this world.

there’s also a diverse section on the making of different cultural/traditional fashion pieces that is worth checking out.

through the lens

today, i, jane, got to photograph a close friend to celebrate her senior year of high school. it was fun to see her through my lens and let her work the camera; different from our usual time spent in school or on the lacrosse field. here are some fun shots I got of her.

photos were taken at lake harriet and the lake harriet rose gardens in mpls.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

thank you maddie for being such a fun model !

bye bye summer job

i, laura, absolutely adored my summer job. i spent everyday taking pictures of clothes for an online website and got to learn the ins and outs of an online business. it was everything i could have asked for and more. my last day was last friday and i’ll admit it was pretty hard to say goodbye. i have nothing but respect for the great company i got to work for and an even greater appreciation for my coworkers that made each day full of laughter and fun. i cannot wait to join the full-time working word one day and i hope to do something that can combine my love for business and fashion.

so, fawbush’s thank you for having me this summer. it was a pleasure.
