Titans in Greek mythology are descendants of Gaea and Uranus who gave birth to twelve titans, six males and six females. For this year’s fashion show, we have put a twist on the definition of a Titan.
Overall, Titans are the second generation of divine beings: the child of a god and goddess. For the show, instead of representing the twelve Titans, I decided to represent eleven different gods or goddesses walking down the runway with their Titan (kid). I decided to go with the kids scene for the show because my mother is the owner of a in home licensed daycare located in Medina, NY. I have always been around kids from my baby cousins to the daycare kids, that I have learned so much about them and how to work with them.
Some might think that working with a kid to put in the fashion show is too much work, but once you learn more about the kid and how to teach kids so they understand what is going on, it is not as hard as it seems. My idea of a mini me trend came when I was doing an assignment for one of my classes. The article I was reading talked about how the mini me trend is becoming more popular to this day. We see this trend with the mommy & me and daddy & me outfits. Celebrities such as Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and more strut around with their daughters looking like a mini version of themselves. Moms love the idea of matching with their daughters and this is why I wanted to bring this popular trend to our fashion show this spring.
I have already done a great deal of work to put this scene together. Since I am a merchandising student, I will be borrowing clothes from businesses to make my vision come alive on the runway. I am thankful for this opportunity as putting together this scene has really pushed me to work outside of my comfort zone and allowing me to reach my full potential. I saw this quote while researching information for my scene and it stated “Great things never come from comfort zones.” This statement will stay in the back of my head to remind me great things come to those who work hard and push themselves.
I would like to thank Bailey Johnson who is a fashion student at GCC for helping me create this scene. I hope everyone comes out to the show April 29th to see all the hard work the fashion majors at GCC are putting into this show.
