The Dangers of Fashion
FACT: Statistics show that for the past 5 years, there has been a sharp increase in fashion-related injuries during NY fashion week. In 2014 alone, 4,539 such injuries were reported and that number has increased steadily every year.
As the 2019 Fashion Week approaches, we want you to stay informed, safe and not become another statistic. Please keep the following tips in mind and stay chic and cautious out there!
Please be mindful with that box cutter when opening your packages. You don’t want to wear gloves in September.
Don’t forget that fighting a fellow sample sale shopper or diving for that deeply-discounted item can come with a hefty price tag: a serious head injury.
Finally, please remember to wear sensible shoes. Limping from show to show is so last season. Also, take special care of your wrists when placing excessive online orders for those fashion week outfits. Not doing so can lead to irreversible wrist damage.
Here were the sketches I created before out shoot. Most of my sketching is super rough, but gives everyone a good starting point for conversations.
