An exploration of fashion I did during my fourth and final year at Sheridan College.
“When I was little my mother dressed me, which perhaps concludes the most stylish time of my life thus far. Despite not knowing what it was that fashion meant to me, there was a part of me that couldn’t help but be fascinated by it. Subjective in nature, fashion can mean and be so many things. There is no one way to look at it and that to me was worth researching. So I set out on a journey to explore the world of fashion and what it means to different people. Along the way I met many interesting individuals who were willing to tell me all about why they wear what they wear. Over the next few pages are the illustrated concepts behind each individual’s style and what it means to them!”
The Common Good Café opened in downtown Barrie, Ontario October 2018. These images were created for their social media to spread positive thinking and great words from inspirational people. Images were printed as inspirational postcards with the mission statement I developed on the reverse side. These cards are distributed to patrons daily.
TOGETHER FOR THE COMMON GOOD.
“What is common in your life? We believe in inspiring environments, good food, and good drinks – the kind to help you wake up and the kind to help you unwind.
We believe in meeting with friends and sharing stories and making new friends and creating new stories. We believe in laughter, kindness, community, and doing a good deed every day. big or small.
Hold the door open. Say hello. Drop by. Stay longer than expected. Make us the common factor in your week. Whatever you do, and however you do it, be good.”
