    I was looking at the fashion industries latest problems for the past 14 years compared to the way it used to be in 1996. I believe if someone took out old photos you’d find everyone doesn
    ‘t look like there supposed to. They look like my modeling card when I got turned down by RIMA. I think the creative stifle and contsant threat is a copy someone problem. You know the high school story don’t copy someone you’ll get no where. Especially people have nothing to do. This can create histeria of I don’t know who I am, and You stole my stuff when it’s actually someone else’s stuff they think of ie. me. It’s especially agitating to grab a magazine and see and over make up person that looks like you with almost nothoing on when that didn’t exist in 1995- 1996. I think All your problems in movie music and magazine resemble parts or people who want to reprent something in my life neven if I don’t agree.I also think the fashion industry work looks like it contantly isn’t sure of where it’s going or it’s always having a real hard time getting there. Everyone from models to actors looking around wondering why there lves are so hard or why they aren’t fitting up to “who they pretend to be.” All the acting is stiffling the old drive the industry used to have. The best corse of action to fresolve all these problems with out being called on. Woulkd be to go back to a model that looks of the1995 time now, and publish as many magazines in that fashion. To be perfectly honest. I don’t think anyone that can do anything for your cause is paying attention because everything looks that ridiculous and there nothing to relly pay much attention to. Your not making anything fresh as the industry is so casullay used. I wrote because I noticed this today that there is no other reason for this to be happening except for that. Fashion needs it’s old stuff bak close to what feels like now before it really kills all the top designers and they never have anyone good enough to replace them because they are original. I want this problem to stop and for eveyone to have something to do. Maybe going over what was missing from the plans in about 1995 and adjusting them to now you’d have a lot to start with and a head start.

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
