FC President Steven Escamilla encourages his club to express themselves through fashion.
Steven Escamilla’s tweet prompted us to find out more about his latest Fashion Club activity in upcycling denim. This is what he has to say about fashion and self-expression!
On November 14th during lunch time, all the members of Pacheco High School’s FIDM Fashion Club came together for the second workshop of the year. The workshop centered around customizing old jeans in order to make them look more appealing and fashionable—giving old jeans new life.
The officers wanted to challenge our club members to step outside the box and revamp their old jeans, and to teach them that it doesn’t matter how much money you have or what designer label you have on your clothing. It’s all about how you wear and style your clothes. The members brought their own jeans, and the officers provided the tools and even demonstrated tips and tricks on how to properly use them.
Fashion has always been a way in which I express my personality and creativity. Fashion isn’t just style. It’s art, and I am the canvas. It’s something through which you express all kinds of feelings—there are no rules or limitations to what you can create.
At the moment, I’m going through the admissions process for FIDM Los Angeles, to major in Beauty Industry Merchandising & Marketing. At a very early age, I recognized my deep love for art, fashion, and beauty. I wish to have more than a career, but a lifestyle surrounded by creativity and diversity. What really appeals to me about my major is that it’s not common for a male to major in the beauty industry. I want to make a difference and break the stereotypical gender role. In the beauty industry I would love to be a role model for younger children and teens could look up to. I want them to be able to be themselves and know that anyone can be anything they want regardless of their gender.
