Food for Thought
CALLING ALL: Fashion Forward Individuals. Welcome to GFC Academy, where you will not learn how to be stylish but instead understand and interpret it. The three textbooks you will need for class today are: The Supermodern Wardrobe, Brand. New, and Black Style. These three texts offer introspective looks at fashion in urban environments, consumer culture of fashion and design, and how politics and cultural exchange have affected the ever evolving fashions of Black people. These three works will be the guiding force for our exploration into new and innovative perspectives on fashion--the culture, the art, and the business. See you next class, and don't forget to bring your books.
