Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmystyle
The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos that showcase your personal style. Our project takes inspiration from New York’s Museum of Modern Art’s (@themuseumofmodernart) exhibit, “Items: Is Fashion Modern?,” which features 111 items of garments and accessories that have had a strong impact on culture in the last century. Paola Antonelli (@paolantonelli), senior curator of architecture and design at MoMA, shared these tips for getting started with your submission:
Think about the role fashion plays in your life — and capture it in an image. “The way we dress tells us so much about our identities and selves, as well as larger histories or stories of place and community,” says Paola. “Clothing can be armor, disguise or representation of true selfhood.”
Focus on specific items in your closet you’d like to highlight: “Pick something you love, that you truly adore and feel happy in,” says Paola. “Find out more about its story before you take your picture. Where did it come from? Who might have made it? How much did it cost you? How do you take care of it? And then strike a pose.”
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmystyle hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
