por Melissa A. Borza

Missy Maker is a middle school girl who loves math and fashion. She sees math in everything she does. She tries to hide this from her friends, because she thinks it’s too geeky. Missy hears that the school math club needs more members, but she’s worried about what her friends will think if she joins, and she’s already committed to joining the fashion club.

After an epic internal struggle and with the support of her peers and her quirky, loving family, Missy finds that she can be both a Mathlete and a Fashionista. Missy figures out how to bring the two clubs together to help both groups win. In the process, she discovers that she can openly excel in math and science and still be popular with her peers.

Fashion OffBeat: 20 Designs for Shirts & Jackets

por SANJAY GROVER संजय ग्रोवर

 The cloth was reversible, looking like Blue Denim and the inner side was gray. My father was a wholesale cloth merchant. He used to inform us whenever  fancy cloths were available within the shop. 'Why should not I design it myself', seeing the cloth the thought came to my mind. There was only one showroom for readymade garments in the town, which used to make us greedy by showing its stylish and colourful garments. We were almost lower-middle-class people (still.I am the same), so it was not possible for us  to buy expensive things daily or monthly. When I illustrated my design before tailor, he was not ready to stitch, and mocked also at me. According to my idea, shirt must be gray and will have design of blue on it and the pants/jeans would be vice versa.  I persisted continuously and he was convinced finally. In this way I opened my innings. Before this I used to get my school-bags and sweaters (designed by me) stitched/woven by my mother or sisters.

One day when I was in a tailor's shop for getting repaired my canvas jeans’ zip, after repair I asked how much money I had to pay? He told with a miny smile that money did not matter but your heavy jeans destroyed two of my needles, so give me two rupees only. By saying so he touched my heart. It was beginning of a friendship. In the beginning I convinced my friends-relatives-acquaintances somehow and decorated my designs on their bodies. I remember I created some stylish Khadi (kind of an Indian cotton) shirts within 50 rs of budget (including stitching charges). Naturally, whenever any third person would praise the style/design, the shirt-owner returned to me for a new design.


Then I started to illustrate these designs in a diary. Also created a new name for myself - KG Sanjay. Mostly I used to create one design for one particular person. Sometimes people selected one from my pre-drawn designs. The same designs are now safe in this diary. Most of designs are created in 1984-85. Pages of the lined diary (I got as a gift with my first bicycles in 1979) got yellow and blury, Actually at that time I could not know exactly what to do with diary and designs thereafter! In fact even I did not know that Fashion designing is a profession or there are some courses for it. NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) had been established later.



Thankfully I got an app like SuperPhoto-Free which made these pictures quite clear, attractive and impressive. Originally these designs had been created for Gents' shirts and jackets, but these can be used easily in place of each other. As far as I am concerned, can create a few new designs from these and can also beautifully convert these into T-shirts or Ladies Garments. Few of these designs I made with old and useless clothes like design no. 118 had been made of two waste pants and an old jacket. You too can try this if you are creative and imaginative somewhere inside. In inverted (white in black), there are many designs where you can try painting, screen printing, patchwork, embroidery etc. The original sketch is also there with each design.



See you again with a new attempt. Of course, there will be a new job and most probably this will be for women's clothings. It will take some time but hopefully something new and different will come out.



The first part of the old and yellow diary is now in your hands-

with best wishes,

-Sanjay Grover

(To be continued & corrected)


कपड़ा देखने में ब्ल्यू डेनिम जैसा था, अंदर ग्रे कलर था। पिताजी की कपड़ों की दुकान थी यानि कि होलसेल क्लॉथ मर्चेंट थे। जब कभी दुकान पर कोई फ़ैंसी कपड़ा आता, वे घर ले आते थे। इस कपड़े को देखकर मन हुआ क्यों न इसका डिज़ाइन ख़ुद ही बनाया जाए। शहर में रेडीमेड कपड़ों का एक ही शोरुम था, जहां टंगे रंग-बिरंगे, अलग-अलग डिज़ाइनों वाले कपड़े देखकर मन ललचा जाता। हम लगभग निम्नमध्यवर्गीय लोग थे, इसलिए आए दिन महंगी चीज़ें खरीदना संभव नहीं था (अभी भी मैं वही हूं)। मैंने दर्ज़ी को डिज़ाइन बताया तो वह तैयार ही न हुआ, हंसने लगा। मैं कह रहा था कि ग्रे कलर की शर्ट और उसपर ब्ल्यू से डिज़ाइन और पैंट पर ठीक इसका उल्टा करना है। मैं ज़िद करता रहा और अंततः वह मान गया। इस तरह डिज़ाइनिंग की शुरुआत हो गई। उससे पहले घर पर अपने ड़िज़ाइन किए स्वेटर, स्कूल बैग आदि बनवाता रहता था।

एक दिन  कैनवास की एक जींस पर ज़िप लगवाने एक दर्ज़ी के पास गया। काम करवाने के बाद पैसे पूछे तो उसने कहा कि पैसे तो क्या लेने हैं मगर इस मोटी जींस पर दो सुई टूट गईं हैं, दो रुपए दे दो। बात दिल को छू गई। दर्ज़ी लड़का-सा ही था। आना-जाना शुरु हो गया। दोस्तों-रिश्तेदारों-परिचितों को शुरु में तो कभी-कभी ज़बरदस्ती ही, किसी भी तरह कन्विंस करके, डिज़ाइन वाले कपड़े पहना देता था। मुझे याद है कि ख़ादी की स्टाइलिश शर्टें मैंने लोगों को, सिलाई समेत, पचास-पचास रुपए में पहनाई थी। ज़ाहिर कि जब कोई तीसरा तारीफ़ करता तब वे दूसरे फिर लौटकर अगला कपड़ा डिज़ाइन करवाने मेरे पास आ जाते।

फिर मैंने ये डिज़ाइन एक डायरी में दर्ज़ करने शुरु कर दिए। अपना एक नया नाम भी रख लिया- के.जी.संजय। ज़्यादातर एक डिज़ाइन एक व्यक्ति के लिए बनाया जाता। अकसर मैं कपड़ा देखकर डिज़ाइन बनाता या कभी-कभी लोग बने हुए डिज़ाइनों में से ही कोई चुन लेते। वही सब डिज़ाइन इस डायरी में सुरक्षित हैं। ज़्यादातर डिज़ाइन 1984-85 के हैं। हीरो साइकिल के साथ मिली 1979 की इस लाइनोंवाली डायरी के पन्ने पीले पड़ गए हैं, स्केच धुंधला गए हैं क्योंकि उस वक़्त मुझे मालूम नहीं था कि इसका कब तक, क्या और कैसा इस्तेमाल होगा ? सही बात तो यह कि उस वक़्त मुझे यह भी मालूम नहीं था कि फ़ैशन डिज़ाइनिंग कोई कैरियर/प्रोफ़ेशन है और इसकी कोई पढ़ाई/कोर्स भी होती/होता है। निफ़्ट यानि कि नेशनल इंस्टीट्यूट ऑफ़ फ़ैशन टैक्नोलॉजी काफ़ी बाद में ख़ुला था।


शुक्र है कि सुपरफ़ोटो-फ़्री जैसा ऐप मुझे मिला जिससे कि ये रेखांकन काफ़ी स्पष्ट, आकर्षक और प्रभावशाली हो गए हैं। मूलतः ये डिज़ाइन जेंट्स् शर्टसª और जैकेट्स् के लिए बनाए गए हैं मगर इन्हें बदलकर एक-दूसरे की जगह बड़ी आसानी से इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। जहां तक मेरी बात है, इन्हीं डिज़ाइनों में से कई नये डिज़ाइन बना सकता हूं और इन्हें टीशर्ट्स् या लेडीज़ गारमेंट्स् में बड़ी ख़ूबसूरती से ढाल सकता हूं। इनमें से कई डिज़ाइन मैंने पुराने और बेकार कपड़ों से बनाए हैं,जैसे कि डिज़ाइन नं.118 दो ख़राब पैंटों और एक पुरानी जैकेट से बना है। आप भी ऐसी कोशिश कर सकते हैं। आपके अपने अंदर अगर कलाकारी, क्रिएटिविटी या कल्पनाशीलता है तो उसके लिए मैंने पूरी संभावना/गुंजाइश छोड़ी है। इनवर्टेड (काले में सफ़ेद) में बहुत-से डिज़ाइन हैं जिनमें जिनमें आप पेंटिंग, स्क्रीन प्रिंटिंग, पैचवर्क, कढ़ाई आदि के प्रयोग कर सकते हैं। मूल/ओरिजनल स्केच हर डिज़ाइन के साथ नीचे दिया गया है।

नई कोशिश के साथ फिर मिलेंगे। ज़ाहिर है कि इसमें बिलकुल नया काम होगा और संभावना है कि ज़्यादा काम स्त्रियों के कपड़ों के लिए होगा। थोड़ा वक़्त तो लगेगा पर उम्मीद है कि कुछ नया और अलग ही सामने आएगा।

पुरानी पीली डायरी का पहला हिस्सा आपके सामने है-

शुभकामनाओं सहित,

-संजय ग्रोवर

Fashion Myths: A Cultural Critique

por Roman Meinhold

Besides products and services multinational corporations also sell myths, values and immaterial goods. Such »meta-goods« (e.g. prestige, beauty, strength) are major selling points in the context of successful marketing and advertising. Fashion adverts draw on deeply rooted human values, ideals and desires such as values and symbols of social recognition, beautification and rejuvenation. Although the reference to such meta-goods is obvious to some consumers, their rootedness in philosophical theories of human nature is less apparent, even for the marketers and advertisers themselves. This book is of special interest for researchers and students in the fields of Cultural Studies, Media Studies, Marketing, Advertising, Fashion, Cultural Critique, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology and Psychology, and for anyone interested in the ways in which fashion operates.

The fashion industry has always been in constant motion and, without a doubt, had been one of the strongest economic pillars of the country until the pandemic hit. Since then, this sector has had to reinvent itself in order to rebound from 2020, a thing that, although it may seem difficult, fashion is an expert in the subject.

Fashion is the reflection and aesthetic expression of a society, influenced by its culture and values, in a given period of time or place. For this reason, we can say that for something to be fashionable or trendy, it also has to have an expiration date. We see this constantly reflected in Fashion Week where, every year, designers present the latest trends and try to innovate, while maintaining their essence, with the pure objective of transferring their designs off the catwalk to a new stage, a more important one, the street.

As Coco Chanel would well say, "fashion changes, style remains."

The easiest way to get into the world of fashion, get to know its designers, models, the most important brands and the latest trends, is to spend time in our virtual library. In it you will find everything you are looking for to specialize for free and with PDF download. Don't miss it!

Fashion is a form of expression, your personality and mood are reflected in the clothes you choose to wear that day. And, to tell the truth, you don't need to wear a brand name to captivate others, Audrey Hepburn, is the clear example. She didn't need much, nothing more than a pair of ballerinas, Capri pants and a white T-shirt. Her subtlety and elegance made the simplest thing become exquisite in the eyes of anyone. 

In this section you will find a complete guide to know how to dress. Indispensable tips and techniques to know how to combine colors and textures. You will learn about morphology and dress protocols. If you are not quite sure what your style is, enter and explore your own voice in the world of fashion.

According to the UN, the fashion industry is the second most polluting sector in the world. Over the years, this industry has become more conscious and has since aimed to show a new face regarding its responsibility to the environment. Likewise, the throwaway culture has become more and more present in our society, but movements such as slow fashion and circular economy try to stop it through responsible consumption, with quality and durable garments, taking advantage of the recycling of old clothes instead of making new ones. 

The books we offer in our virtual library will help you understand one of the most sensitive and important points of fashion. The guides have content for all audiences, so if you are interested in learning the most sustainable ways in the fashion industry, come in and download free PDF as much as you want.

Clothing was born as a basic need for men. Over time it changed and gained a more aesthetic character. Therefore, knowing the history of fashion is, without a doubt, a fundamental part to understand the reason for our society. And, as mentioned above, clothing has not only been closely related to the weather, but also to social status, since its beginnings in Egypt. In the same way, clothing has served to distinguish professions and cultures. 

Experience a fascinating journey through fashion. From the first fabrics, where its beginnings date back to ancient Egypt, to the great catwalks that the industry offers us every day. Enter and discover specialized content, from Coco Chanel, one of the greatest icons of the 20th century for revolutionizing the way women dress, to the mythical Cristóbal Balenciaga, the fashion engineer.
