The Philanthropic Methods of the Academy of Art University

Are you into liberal arts and design? Do you have an interest in the entertainment industry? Have you ever heard of the Academy of Art University? Well, if you haven’t heard, then just know that this is one of the leading schools for the arts in the U.S. The school is actually located in the heart of San Francisco, California. It has exhibits, has galleries, has an extensive automotive museum and has student housing. There are more than 12,500 students here as well as an estimated 283 full-time teachers. In addition to that, the school has up to 1,150 part-time teachers, and it offers a wide variety of degrees and certificates.

 

On another note, the Academy of Art University is using its brilliance to come-up with ideas to better serve its community. Some of the school’s tech students have decided to use their philanthropic nature to cut-down on crime in the city’s Tenderloin District. Bordered by downtown and Nob Hill, the Tenderloin District is one of the oldest neighborhood’s in San Francisco as it dates back to the California Gold Rush. With time comes change and this specific area of a quarter-square mile has up to 25,000 people. Thanks to having such large amounts of people who live in a rather small area, crime has risen to unthinkable levels.

 

Academy of Art University’s tech students have designed a technologically advanced application that can be used via smartphones. This application will use emojis/moods to represent certain aspects of the district. By using augmented reality, the technology will overlay on top of the city’s geographical landscape. The project is known as Tenderfeels, and it will provide real-time data of how the inhabitants feel about specific points-of-interest.

 

The proposal of this particular project has already been submitted to the Chief Innovation Officer of San Francisco. If everything goes well, some much needed improvements will be taking place shortly, which will make a huge difference in safety on how the residents of the area feel.

Fabletics Gets Even More Fashionable

What could be better than a dress, which is totally acceptable to wear out on a date, made out of the same material as your favorite pair of sweatpants? According to Fabletics, co-founder Kate Hudson, only having a full closet of them. In an interview for Marie Claire Magazine, Hudson practically gushed over the line of athleisure dresses that will be debuted starting on April 1 for Fabletics customers.

Hudson says she is thrilled to announce the new additions to the Fabletics outfit collections because they will certainly add an element of comfort and versatility to the working woman’s wardrobe. Along those lines, Hudson says she hopes that the new additions to the Fabletics line will encourage women to lead healthy, active lifestyles, which incorporate fitness as a regular element of their daily routines. Hudson explains that by creating dress options which are easy for women to throw on, without having to go through the annoying processing of squeezing into a pair of Spanx, they will be more likely to dress fashionably yet comfortably for their everyday schedules.

On his Facebook page, Hudson says one of the best parts about the new offerings by Fabletics is that women will not have to break the bank to look stylish yet ready to take on the day. Hudson is totally committed to keeping her outfit offerings accessible and affordable to women, yet not compromising on the high quality construction of the clothing items from top notch materials.

Although when asked about whether she thinks there is a way to make athleisure wear more high fashion Hudson said yes, she cautioned that high fashion necessarily means high prices, and this probably would not serve to benefit a wide range of potential customers.

In addition, Hudson mentioned that there are already plenty of athletic clothing companies in the industry which market supposedly high quality, long lasting athletic clothing items but cost exorbitant prices. She said on the Pinterest page that this was not the model Hudson says she sought to replicate when she came up with the idea for Fabletics. Rather, Hudson wanted to make high quality, fun athletic fashion available to the average women on the average budget.

True to her words, Fabletics has been doing just that since it opened its doors in 2013. As a primiarily online fitness fashion retailer, Fabletics markets its outfits as part of a monthly membership program. While monthly membership is optional for Fabletics customers, it comes with its perks.

Namely, Fabletics VIP monthly members pay only $49.95 for a specially crafted athletic outfit each month, which also includes free shipping. Fabletics even offers its first time monthly subscribers an option to purchase their first outfit for the extremely low price of $25, which also includes free shipping.

Ashley Graham Cover: The Praise and the Criticism

 

The latest Sports Illustrated swim suit cover models have roused quite a bit of hoopla from critics, people praising the choice of models and different perspectives from other models. The three different covers of this year’s swim suit magazines are Ronda Rousey the UFC champion, model Hailey Clauson and model Ashley Graham. The covers have amounted a strange combination of both praise and annoyance by the fashion world. Many people are pleased with Sports Illustrated for choosing three models with differing body types. Ronda Rousey is has an athletic and inverted triangle body type, Hailey Clauson is lean and rectangular and Ashley Graham is curvaceous and has a combination of hourglass and pear body type. Dialogue immediately opened up about Ashley Graham’s cover since she is the very first plus size model to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Tyra Banks -who was also a cover model for Sports Illustrated- showed her support for Ashley Graham’s cover. She tweeted: “Your life is about 2 explode N2 amazingness” to Ashley Graham. Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski also showed support to Graham’s beautiful cover by tweeting: “absolutely breathtakingly awesome”. Many social media users also showed support to Ashley Graham’s cover on twitter.

Sadly though some people chose to strike out at the newest Sports Illustrated model. A former Sports Illustrated model is the most outspoken against Ashley Graham’s cover. Cheryl Tiegs made the comment: “I don’t like that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them”. She also went on to “compliment Ashley Graham while simultaneously insulting her with a second comment: “Your waist should be smaller than 35 inches. I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run”.

Ashley Graham for her part has stated her focus is to be healthy for her body type and to be happy with maintaining body peace. She made many body positive comments about the recent cover such as: “I’ve got plenty of friends (of all sizes) and different shapes and everything and I don’t want any of them to feel like they aren’t real women”. She also viewed her cover for Sports Illustrated as a dream come true and that she hopes it will lead more women with curvaceous or plus sizes to find body peace.

Hopefully Ashley Graham’s cover for Sports Illustrated will lead to more fashion options for plus-size women. Fashionable plus-size clothing is difficult to come by and many high end designers refuse to design for the plus-size women. Oscar nominated actress Melissa McCarthy stated that no big name fashion designers would make her Oscar dress and that she had to find one for herself. Due to this McCarthy has created her very own plus-size fashion line to rectify the appalling lack of fashion for women with her body type. This means that the door is opening for plus-size fashion and plus-size models to be more in demand in the future.

The online fashion boutique JustFab has some plus-size fashion. To create a personalized boutique with the sizes an individual all that needs to be done is to fill out the quiz on the JustFab website and to become a VIP shopper with the website. After that customers can access the fashionable and decently priced plus-size fashion and other sized fashion pieces to their heart’s desire. Follow them on Instagram!
