Jean Paul Gaultier’s quote “When I started in fashion, I had already adopted the sailor-striped sweater as my
uniform; that way, I wouldn’t have to drive myself crazy trying to figure out what to wear” was the starting point of a new Wardrobe Zine project. This timeless pattern can be found in many wardrobes. The sailor-striped clothes in this video are collected from friends’, family’s and acquaintances’ closets.
Wardrobe Zine is a personal zine about fashion. The zine is about re-appreciating and being aware of what you already have. It gives a humorous insight into the entire wardrobe of an individual. Wardrobe Zine distinguishes itself by being a non commercial antithesis of the current supply of fashion magazines that are attempting to persuade you to buy newly produced goods. Wardrobe zine however, gives you the opportunity to swap or borrow clothes with your friends. Therefore the desire for renewal and variation in the field of fashion can still be fulfilled, without any form of overproduction.
