Masculine Revolution — Discussion on the Menswear Renaissance

Bless up from your feet to your head-top,

We Go Again.

I started this discussion years ago with anyone who would listen and as a young artist without resources I did all I could to share it, is the inception of the blog. My guiding Principles and Philosophies dictate every fashion article Write from the beginning. There’s not one article on this website that doesn’t have a distinction among my forecast.

I grew to enjoy writing as a hobby and ended up writing over 100 articles in 2019. Here in 2020 as we approach 2022 where the start of the Renaissance will be as clear as day I wanted to document all things that have been happening. from the art Industry of which I love with every fibre of my being,, the men who speak to men and I understand as propagators of the ethos of what masculinity is and represent it well we all have the same mind and way of understanding.

I decided to make a video on the Ethos and will soon make a video of artists representing Masculinity as they see fit in fashion particularly as it becomes the vehicle of what we see as the conversation maker. Each menswear designer is creating something for not the smallest substrata but the wider demographic.

As much I love avant-garde and andro fashion that is part of a substrate and cross-dressing as well as wearing womenswear is part of an even smaller respectable substrate that needs representation equally. Right beside the designers that are speaking to masculinity as it is and grow with it.

What we are seeing in the fashion industry is a Menswear revolution where we are able to represent masculinity in art in ways it wasn’t able before. the foundations being a working man, streetwear, industrial tech wear, and other things laying the first firmament the foundation of masculinity being the principles of utility and simplicity of use, evolving the conversation and design language.

NYTypical: My Aspiration for Arah on Youtube – Bigger more fulfilled industry

bless from your feet to your head top

we go again,

so far I’ve spent several weeks creating visual content and not only am I finding it fun I’ finding it rewarding and people seem to enjoy my content, that being said I want nothing more than to be better at offering up great videos for all the people out there that want to understand fashion and want to learn about the ins and outs of this sector.

I know for me from last decade I had a very hard time in this industry, during my tutelage I was looked down one way or another, straight black and got in late (16) in a realm where vogue staff is so unlike me I was made sure to know I didn’t fit in. I went through my fair share of racism and scrutiny which is understandable. Being the only black male who is into fashion people wonder how and why/ wha would b the point.

You march forward though, for me that was in the form of looking up fashion history in the middle of digital renders and listening to people talk about fashion while creating digital images. Sneaking fashion into my work and focusing on he style of the characters clothes. dressing better evolving my knowledge .

I just stayed low and kept growing soon enough you find people like asap rocky and Kanye West showing its cool to be a fashionable male, Kanye releases the red Octobers. Then says he wants to create a fashion Line and become head of a major fashion house. Suddenly he’s worth billions and his friend is head of Louis Vuitton. Such unbelievable stories I get to witness. for years studying watching these videos and now on the cusp of the new decade I’m in groups sharing my thoughts and knowledge in ways I was never allowed to before.

I’ve found this space and suddenly I have the opportunity to help it grow and not be in the dark place I walked into, may other people who went through what I went through would have probably been repulsed by fashion. Not me that’s for certain these people wouldn’t change my mind.

Now With all the new men interested in learning and what I have to say coming from the place that it is, being somewhat relatable and knowing I just want the best for the whole fashion game from the journalist to stylists, to photographers to illustrators designers etc. I surely have the time and why to draw all of these people in to make it a fun loving community.

I do in fact see men who emulate the times of old its this pretentiousness and arrogance as if their information makes them superior just like the girls had done back then, I don’t know heat to blame but I know hat is an attitude I dislike greatly. The best thing I can think of to change it is be a positive voice in fashion as a man who wants men to dress better and more creative just like women have the allowance to do.

Thats my conclusion I want to make some of the best  create fun and professional fashion video that is entertaining and educational. As laborious as this is going to be I have the will to give it my  all. 

Making visually appealing work that expresses the fun in fashion that can educate all the new faces is a big deal for me and super important to not have those people be turned away by over the head technical jargon that’s made to make new participants feel small. Whereas I would rather open them up to that part with an enthusiasm and not overwhelm them. Give them the right resources to start their journey on their own and in the end become a productive part of the Industry.

Thats my WHY For Arah of Youtube, if anything open up the lane for people to not think fashion is a closed off community. Where you see a guy from a council estate who is even more entrenched in this fashion art than those who would hide behind pretentiousness. And is willing to share a space with those that are new and those that have been here a long time just was long as their attitude is right. With that more people care deeply or have an understanding of why people in fashion do what they do rather than people live with no knowledge of fashion houses and what they stand for in general.

OYOS: Repertoire of Excellence

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We Go Again,

MAILING LIST

Since I’ve been around for a year or so now I have been thinking intently about all the years that has led up to this level that I’m on now. How much I’ve given other people and what I give to myself.

For years up until I started my website I dedicated myself to helping other people walk into their greatness. Is and always will be my calling, I have never really cared about me the type of money I make and the sacrifices I’ve made for others so long as they gave of them everything towards their greatness.

I never blamed any of them for their failure, they just wasn’t ready for the intensity it takes, with that though I noticed all the pitfalls in having to create the right measured for your success. I spoke about this in Talent, Execution and Elite Mentality, University of Self and Being an Elite Level Producer, these are all seeds to my understanding of what it takes.

What I learned from producing other people is no one is willing to make the sacrifices I’m willing to make for our mutual benefit. For years I toiled learned and failed, not in big ways but to the degree that people were too okay with ordinary successes and were not ready for the extraordinary success I would want to provide.

That was fine though. Massive success isn’t for everyone so I move on and leave people to their own devices. Then it dawned on me that no one I know really had a local example of massive success. People are drawn to it but don’t know what it looks like day to day and because of “instant success” people think it’s supposed to happen to them right away when in reality it’s a daily thing that you deliver on weekly monthly quarterly and so forth.

This example of excellence is very foreign and day to day the stacking effect isn’t exposed. For me right now this effect is on full display there’s so much that goes into every blog, article, essay, post that there happens to be no accidents. I’m not necessarily talking about the average everyday zeitgeist topics that are referenced day to day, but this is part of a mission now to expose what grand planning looks like day to day. It starts with OYOS and lives by it.

Everyday a new seed is planted more wood for the ship is cured and the foundation of excellence being built in front of their very eyes in hopes to inspire and expose what it takes. Not just in quality but in speed. In this day and age you need speed and quality but that only comes with high vision and high concept production and execution of proof of concept.

I will break these down further I just want to start with the laying of the field. Planting these understandings for the people that want and need them. It’s important for me to have them out there.

This is the Movement of my Dial
