Fashion’s New Optimism?
Recession, depression, credit crunch, layoffs……. it’s all so bleak. But Dazed and Confused, the cult British magazine, is coming out with a December issue all about the unlikeliest of topics: optimism. And not just any kind of optimism, but fashion optimism — warm, fuzzy feelings about an industry that’s posting record loses, bracing for a depressing holiday season, and experiencing store closings left and right.
Dazed presents 18 of the freshest young fashion talents of the year here on Dazed Digital. For the December issue of Dazed & Confused, the fashion team gave reason to be cheerful with a shoot by Daniel Sannwald styled by Katie Shillingford and Robbie Spencer. Pierre Debuscherre also made a film to accompany this energetic shoot, which showcased the new designers, the new faces as chosen by the Dazed fashion team and and above all it asks people to “Smile!”
