Hollywood's strong resistance to structural change has affected the fashion industry. Black actors shouted loudly and met makeup artists who didn't have the tools or experience to make skin tone and hair look good. Stylist Jason Bolden sees the collaboration between the brand and the slim-colored actress nominated by the Oscars continue, while taking an expensive adventure on the unknown. The choice of lighting and technology affects how color actors appear on the camera, whether they're filming or walking on the red carpet-many photographers tend to prefer calibration to make brighter skin look better. The size and design of clothing is the most obvious link between Hollywood and fashion. Designers usually make eye-catching, well-known dresses only for size two red carpets,
Actors, stylists, and other creatives can find clever ways to solve these problems, whether it's Nicole Byer bringing his own hairstyle and makeup, or Melissa McCarthy and promising Designer collaboration. But for every actor or stylist who shines on the red carpet or big screen, many other deserved faces are not. This means those iconic fashion moments, such as Jennifer Beals' Flashdance dance costume or Jennifer Lopez's sudden drooping neckline while wearing a green Grammys gown, for Those who look at it in some way have a more frequent impression of the fashion industry. These iconic fashion moments in turn affect everyone else.
Hollywood needs a new perspective
Voices like the UCLA Diversity Report claim that true systemic change is necessary to make Hollywood a more diverse, inclusive, and accessible place. Changing Hollywood requires not only making different decisions, but also changing the way big business decisions are made.
Where will this structural change come from? Entertainment startup Filmio hopes to achieve this change with its decentralized platform, which aims to democratize the entertainment industry. On Filmio, any filmmaker can share their project-there are no barriers to participating in the platform.
The reason for the success of the project is not because the central executive decides who gets green approval, but because fans interact with the project on a secure blockchain platform that captures interactive data. Interaction data can help "unknown" filmmakers prove that their projects are successful advocates, whether they are connected to the film industry or not. The result is a diverse creative ecosystem with many fans supporting a wide variety of projects, and no party can act as a gatekeeper against people from different backgrounds. With Filmio, various styles that may not be available at executive desks or movie studios will eventually have the opportunity to reach the mass market.
Filmio envisions a more diverse and accessible fashion and entertainment industry. In the truest sense, this is "diversified". Decisions are based on a wide range of people from different life experiences, rather than a group consisting of a few, most of them are wealthy, most are male, and most are white. Moreover, movies made by different groups (whether behind the camera or in front of the camera) have more room for voice when it comes to fashion and styling decisions. Minorities, non-sample size actors will be at a disadvantage when getting the proper support to create those "admirable" fashion moments. More diversity of ideas and experiences will create a fruitful foundation for more fun and democratization of fashion, which actually reflects the diversity and vitality of everyone who cares about movies and clothes.
Fashion and Hollywood have a huge influence, and each other and the entire world have a huge influence. That's why it's so important to make both spaces more democratic and diverse-both industries reflect our society and show us how good the future is. More open and accessible Hollywood could lead the future towards vibrant, creative and diverse fashion.
