VIDEO FAB: Political Fashion

Last week I had a presentation in one of my classes where we had to analyze an argument being presented through any media outlet. Naturally, I remembered Nick Knight and his short film Untitled that debuted last year. After numerous presentations about pseudoscience, ethnocentrism, and Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize, it was finally my turn. I ranted about the genius that is Nick Knight and his controversial blasting of the fashion industry for allowing blantant racism to exist. I explained why he used Naomi Campbell and the significance of her wearing two dresses by Rodarte, one black and one white. With much enthusiasm and excitement, I played the masterpiece. After 2 minutes and 12 seconds of silence...I looked to the stunned and confused faces of my classmates... and then it dawned on, and its politics, are DEFINITELY not understood by all.
