Well the problem I am trying to solve actually touches upon a lot of different categories however is addressed all within the one program under my Fashion Design and Clothing Company "Hood Hip Bottoms" within the division Hood Hip Arts and Culture Community for empowerment. The topics my program address fall within a range of categories such as the arts in fashion design, sex teen pregnancy, gang related activity and clothing for self expression, as well as crime. The thing that all of these categories which are addressed under my program, have to do with fashion, is that fashion can play a role in a lot of the activities, clothing, and more teens and youth in our community involve themselves with. Fashion is a way of self expression and a lot of times the teens and youth in our community will use fashion to self-express themselves in negative ways whether it be dressing way to provocatively or sexy in public for their age when it comes to making a presentation of who they are in life. I want our youth to be able to creatively express themselves and make an impact of who they are through their fashion positively and the right way. Not be motivated by all the negative things some may choose to use fashion for in our culture and in the art world period. I believe if we had more programs geared toward fashion showing our youth how to positively influence and self express themselves through what they wear by carrying on more messages of positivity. That maybe there could be more fashion and art program funding for all cultures.
