30 Years of Little Girls Learning Dance Moves From Music Videos: What this says about today.
This comic strip is so accurate, and sad to say this is so true. I remember finding myself dancing to Moulin Rouge in front of the tv at a very young age. I knew I didn't mean to be sexual, but as the years passed by and I grew older I noticed the influence of sexuality became more noticeable. In the music industry, most songs are sexual, no matter how innocent the songs may seem. Remember, "Dynamite" by Brenda Lee? Well if you look up the lyrics, she basically sings about how she's going to "explode" because she's all hot and bothered. I guess subtle lyrics were more cutesy back than, but with racy music videos, sexuality in marketing is really out there. And little girls have become the obvious target of copycatting raunchy dance moves of their idolized pop stars. I am for artists who are open about their sexuality, but I feel like some things shouldn't easily be shown on tv. And youtube doesn't have parental warning for their more explicit videos. It's just sad that every video has to be about ass and titties. And the fact that little boys and girls think that it's okay to pretend to act sexual. Kids are too young to know these things.
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
