Interestingly, Wilson also considers fashion through the psychoanalytical perspective but unlike Gilbert she examines it in terms of its historic relationship with the western world and how individuals react with one another as a result of dress. For example, especially throughout the last few centuries people have dressed themselves in accordance with their place in society. Wilson provides the example of a woman dressed “Chic” and how it might as well be the uniform “of the rich, chilling, anti-human and rigid.” The stereotypes associated with dress have the ability to create tension amongst individuals and groups dressed differently.

Photographer Andy Davidhazy hiked over 2,600 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), taking a selfie at every mile along the way.
His inspiring journey took over 5 months to complete, required 5 pairs of shoes, 4.5 million steps, and included 5 black bears, 1 wolverine, and dozens of rattlesnakes.
The transformation his body goes through is incredible to witness — two full beards and losing nearly 50 pounds! The journey is the inspiration for an upcoming short film entitled “Lost or Found” starring Davidhazy.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the film and it’s theme:
“After hiking 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, a man discovers that life after a life-changing experience isn’t the change he planned for.”
You can learn more about his experience and what’s he up to now on his follow-up project blog Lostorfound.org.
Davidhazy’s journey left me with one key takeaway: whether you’re looking to escape the city noise or find something deep within yourself, immersing yourself in the wild is a powerful way to recharge and grow as a person.
