WASHINGTON, March 13, 2013 – How funny that J is Law. That Jennifer Lawrence is known as JLaw, taking her position as a young woman with her own moniker without Adam and Eve chemistry resulting in moniker intercourse like Fernas or Ferholas as a result of combining Jennifer Lawrence + Nicholas Hought (her companion) to create a firey FurNace.
Just as we witnessed last year with the contrarian innovation movement that swept the technology world, with inside-out creativity driving product development everywhere from the Microsoft Surface tablet to the launch of Apple IOS 7, what’s inside matters far more than outside in places as outlandish as even Hollywood today.
As a result currently, the women being revered in entertainment are not receiving vacuous attention for being visually arresting actresses. They are receiving meaningful accolades for being memorable artists.
The blending of both industry and androgynous artistry; a version of what we have witnessed in the business world over the last several years, is now playing out in more obvious and accessible parts of culture, like entertainment, and fashion.
Just as the ideas that Andy Warhol put forth in the late 60s and early 70s related to “business being the best form of art” are finally taking mainstream, not fringe, shape in the world that is business, so too are the game changing lines in the sand drawn by pioneers like Gloria Steinem, Patti Smith and Meryl Streep.
Taking form today in bold and bright shape is the changing definition of what is woman.
Today it is ok to define yourself as an artistic woman, as opposed to actress, model or starlet. Just as today good business does not have to choose commerce over creativity, being a “good” woman no longer requires making a choice between far reaching craft driven art and femininity.
As a result we are seeing this through lines of vintage feminine power playing out across the girls apparel and accessories landscape.
Whether it reimagined menswear looks with feminine touches such as boyfriend jeans, blazers, oxfords and belts, or a return to boho chic flowing maxi dresses, colorful tie dyes and beaded headbands, the women’s seeds of power planted decades ago begin to flower in abundance.
