SAMPLE Sartorial Cultural Autobiography By Trevor Pascal a/k/a Trevs There are many different words that can describe the way I dress: skater-esque, city-boy, preppy, stylish but my favorite word has to be different. Not because I don t like to be like everyone else, but because I m creative. I am always doing something different with my clothes, and because of it, I belong to a multitude of communities of style. A typical outfit of mine now is a crew-neck tee shirt, a cardigan, and my dark-colored skinny jeans. On my arms, I wear l about three or four bracelets: an eyeball bead drawstring cuff bracelet, a luau from my prom that I braided and wrapped around my wrist as a mobile memory of my prom and ultimately, my senior year of high school. I have another drawstring cuff, which I sometimes call my good luck bracelet, with a scorpion amber fossil bead. I also have a yin-yang bracelet that I wear sometimes. I almost never leave my house without my Chuck Taylor Converse. I have them in six colors and styles. And how ever could I forget my 80s style schoolboy glasses? I am a part of many different style communities: New-York-City-urban, Black-American, school kid, preppy, and artist, just to name a few. My urban community is basically one that everyone is familiar with, and can encompass anyone. So, I feel that there really aren t any standards for dress in this day and age. Senior intern, Trevor Pascal, sports a stingy brim hat during an interview of Audrey Bailey, milliner, at Mind-Builders Creative Arts Center in the Bronx. Fellow senior intern, Diane Williams, is pictured with Trevs. (Photo courtesy of the Dr. Beverly J. Robinson Community Folk Culture Program at Mind- Builders Creative Arts Center.)
