CCS presentation in just two weeks, peeps! Narrowed down to these sharp-cut tailorings that gives the POWER DRESSING look from this collection. I say minimal and goth has a lot to say.

-Chosen looks: Sheer: 2, Goth: 1, (2), 3, Minimal: 1, Outerwear.
-NEEDS TO QUOTE AND ANALYSE from required reading - see CCS module outline guys. A few in portal one from "Clothing as Sign System" check out page 12-13 and the UNIFORM chapter, got some points on dressing conservative and the suit look.
-I guess check out people's blogs and what they have to say and how they analyze, that could save our mediocre explanations of what's this and how's it different from that though from a point of view.





why does draping, structural cuts and breathtaking desigual details always has to have the B/W color palette for its designs? Compare with Yohji Yamamoto, most of Junya Watanabe, Balmain's last year, etc. etc. etc. ?

The COLLECTION'S VIDEOS which I'll show for Perceptual for the first. It is just LOVE.
even fellow avant-garde-ist Black/White man Gareth Pugh commented!

Power dressing: think monochromatic colors with sharp accentuated structure garments that shows off an androgynous side with sky high stilettos to complete the look. And when the wearer wears it a boost of confidence and is in control.

A stylish and expensive clothing style, intended to convey the impression of assertiveness and competence and predominantly worn by women..
This term has been used since the late 1970s and reflected the clothing styles favoured in business and politics in the US and UK throughout the 1980s. The style was heavily influenced by influential women who were in the news at the time, for example, the cast of the television shows Dynasty and Dallas, the UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the Princess of Wales. Men also had form of 'power dressing' too but this was less distinctive and innovative and often manifested itself in little more than an unusually expensive business suit.
The term 'power dressing' is first recorded in the New York paper The Post-Standard, September 1979:
"The accent has shifted to glamour and power dressing for the city rather than the casual look of past seasons."
The style itself leaned towards a somewhat masculine shape and frequently included a tailored jacket, almost always complete with shoulder pads. The clothes were often made from silk or other expensive materials and their high cost emphasized the elite status of the women wearing them.
