Sarah Oh Fabric as a Fashion Trend

The type of fabric has been a fashion trend that has been occurring consistently. At one point, fur trimmings have been a trend from shoes to dresses. Even clear materials was a popular trend after Kanye West dropped the Yeezy boots. Ever since Kim Kardashian was seen wearing clear boots and heels, it became a huge trend in the design of shoes. Many replicas have been made of the Yeezy’s collection because of how fast of a trend it became once socialites have been wearing them. Another trend that is occurring today is plaid. Many fashion bloggers have been seen wearing plaid skirts that bring back nostalgic memories of late 1990’s and 2000’s. This vintage look was brought back to current fashion. People may assume that the type of clothing may be the only fashion trends that occur but fabric is just as important to the styles of fast fashion. You can observe these trends in the pieces that Drexel’s fashion designers have created for the Drexel fashion show. Many designers incorporated popular fabric into their pieces that show us what fabrics are currently popular or makes their pieces different from other styles.



Hello, my name is Sarah Oh. I currently attend Drexel University and is anticipating to graduate June 2017. I wanted to tell everyone a little about myself. To start off, I grew up as the first generation of Korean American. My parents were immigrants from South Korea. They came to America at around the age of 20 with little to nothing in their pockets. Eventually my parents settled down and decided to own their own dry cleaners. I grew up being around the dry cleaners after school and around the age of 12 I was helping my parents around the store. My mom was a seamstress and that's what sparked my interest with clothes and sewing. Even at such a young age, I would take scraps of fabric and sew anything I put my head to. My parents saw my passion and interest in art so they've been enrolling me in art classes up until my senior year in High school. At the age of 16, I desperately wanted a job in retail. But with a lot of searching and convincing , I was able to have the opportunity to work at a small boutique in my local mall and eventually ended up as assistant manager at age of 17. Now that I am a senior in college, I have learned so much about what I am passionate about and can't be any more thankful about the experiences I gained from college. If I can say that I believe that I was destined to work in the fashion world, I am a strong believer. I want to continue to grow as a person and do something I really love to do.
