"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening" - Coco Chanel

Temperatures may be hovering in the 90s from New York to L.A., but in (air-conditioned!) stores across the country, Fall clothes have arrived. And while the minimalist tendency is far from over (see "Man Up," below), there are also plenty of options for those who've secretly missed a bit of excess. Here, a brief recap of the season's top trends.
  1. Fifties Something
  2. Fur Real (Faux, Too)
  3. Hue New
  4. Man Up
  5. The Gold Economy

Dia De Los Muertos Event: Michigan State University
The Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, in partnership with the Michigan State University Museum, will host activities in celebration of the 2010 El día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

El día de los Muertos, an ancient Mexican celebration in which families reconnect with departed ancestors, provides a special opportunity to remember and celebrate the life and legacy of those who have moved ahead into the sacred lands of Mictlan, the realm of the "fleshless" or the dead. El día de los Muertos is observed November 1 and 2 in connection with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. "The MSU Day of the Dead celebration will enhance understanding of Mexican American culture while providing a unique opportunity to experience artistic expressions and traditions," notes Javier Pescador, MSU professor of history.

Dignidad Rebelde
Dignidad Rebelde is a graphic arts collaboration between Oakland-based artist-activists Jesus Barraza and Melanie Cervantes.  We believe that art can be an empowering reflection of community struggles, dreams and visions.  Following principles of Xicanisma and Zapatismo, we create work that translates people’s stories into art that can be put back into the hands of the communities who inspire it.

We recognize that the history of the majority of people worldwide is a history of colonialism, genocide, and exploitation.  Our art is grounded in Third World and indigenous movements that build people's power to transform the conditions of fragmentation, displacement and loss of culture that result from this history.  Representing these movements through visual art means connecting struggles through our work and seeking to inspire solidarity among communities of struggle worldwide.
