Galactic Wet Dreams: Pedram Karimi A/W13 #SMM24 #MFW24
This morning I was submitting a proposal to a publisher and I started to think about how hard it is to find real diversity anymore. The internet has managed to sort, segment and ghetto-ize us all… sorting us by preference, size, sexuality, body art and the like - lumped together with people who look like us in a playground built for a person of a particular persuasion.
What I’m looking to do is build a compendium of shapes, sizes, sexualities and persuasions - all linked by confidence.
Here’s hoping I get some funding
I spend most of my time with people way hotter than I am. WAAAAAY hotter. And as my decline into middle age (the hair, the poundage, the ‘it fits’ styling) accelerates the gap just widens.
I used to bridge some of the gap with fashion, a statement saying ‘i’m not as attractive as you, but I understand this world and I could be a part of it’ but these days I use my invisibility to place myself amongst the beauty - and try to capture it.
Old and ugly isn’t great , but I’m doing what I can with it
