Last wednesday I went to the financial district with some friends to march to Foley Square with occupy wall street and the unions supporting the protests.  The turn out was really great - it must have been the largest march since occupy wall street began a few weeks ago - and I felt like everything went really well when I left around 8:00PM.  But later that night I found out that once things calmed down and most people had left the police moved in on Liberty Square using both batons and pepper spray on protesters. The police knew it was an opportune moment to agitate tired protesters in order to have an excuse to use force and make arrests.  Government and media resistance has been disturbing, but at the very least it seems like things are getting better as more people support the protests.

On another note, today I had some grommets put on my jacket - two large ones on the front shoulders and seven on the back forming a smiley face.  For my senior collection I'm doing the same thing on some garments I'll be making, but I wanted something to wear now.  Next week I'll be getting something similar done on another one of my jackets, too.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
