Issey Miyake, spring—summer 1999.

Overlength sweaters, dresses off the roll - 'a-poc' is based upon Miyake's first design concept, a piece of cloth, is a new and unique suggestion for everyday life, which goes far beyond the boundaries of fashion. It is made using an industrial knitting or weaving machine programed by a computer. This process creates continuous tubes of fabric  within which lie both shape and pattern. The customer cuts sleeves and skirts  exactly to the length he wants. It is an idea that totally overthrows the existing standards for making clothes.
'A-poc' is made in a sequence in which thread  literally goes into a machine and re-emerges as  a piece of clothing, an accessory, or even a chair. This interactive new method not only reduces leftover fabric but also permits the wearers to participate in the final step of the design of their clothing: they determine the final shape of the product. Mass production and custom-made clothing, seemingly opposing ideas, become compatible with each other through the wizardry of technology and the fire of imagination.

"Western cultures are obsessed with demonstrating their civilised ways - to show that they are different from, and superior to, other cultures, hence the emphasis on newness and nowness. But the technique of establishing signs of civility involves the assertion of distinctiveness against other forms of culture. Accordingly, western fashion systems relentlessly re-invent otherness, by reference to the past (historical illusions), to non- and pre-industrial cultures (folk costume and ethnic looks), and to previous moments in fashion (cyclical re-vamping of the “look” of earlier decades). The western fashion system poaches from other systems and cannibalises diverse influences in reconsituting new techniques of dress and decoration."

I find it so ironic that Bethann Hardison, as the founder of the Diversity Coalition will be awarded at CFDA to honor her efforts to improve the diversity in the fashion industry. What I don’t get is that there hasn’t been the slightest drop in the number of magazines that love to include an editorial that reeks cultural appropriation and ridiculing of native cultures. The first 4 images are just the ones that I have found to be from “tribal themed” shoots included in major magazines only this week.

Did we forget the offensive Vogue Italia March 2014 cover featuring Saskia de Brauw? Not to forget Sebastian Kim who shamelessly shot another tribal themed editorial for Vogue Australia this April after apologizing for donning a model in blackface for an editorial entitled as “African Queen” last year. Tim Walker shot a “touristic” editorial in Myanmar with Edie Campbell standing in front of the natives for W’s May issue?  

I know that there are baby steps being taken to include more POC models both on and off runway. I also am totally with Hardison, Campbell and Iman but the honorary award is only symbolic as there hasn’t been an implementation of the actual intent in the industry. Photographers and editors are still blind and have been manipulating cultures for shock effect to generate more revenues.   

The Diversity Coalition is more in the context of American and European fashion industry, but I just wanted to point out this editorial from Vogue Korea’s March issue. The title of the shoot: “Modern Africa” - “This spring’s trend keywords are vibrant colours and patterns which captures Africa’s primitive life.”

"There are for any particular object (a dress, a tailored suit, a belt) three different structures, one technological, another iconic, the third verbal. These three structures do not have the same circulation pattern. The technological structure appears as a mother tongue of which the real garments derived from it are only instances of “speech.” The two other structures (iconic and verbal) are also languages, but if we believe Fashion magazines, which always claim to discuss a primary real garment, these are derived languages, “translated” from the mother tongue; they intervene as circulation relays between this mother tongue and its instances of “speech” (the real garments). In our society, the circulation of Fashion thus relies in large part on an activity of transformation: there is a transition (at least according to the order invoked by Fashion magazines) from the technological structure to the iconic and verbal structures. Yet this transition, as in all structures, can only be discontinuous: the real garment can only be transformed into “representation” by means of certain operators which we might call shifters, since they serve to transpose one structure into another, to pass, if you will, from one code to another code."
