Miranda July Writes Learning To Love You More

Fashion Journalism From 'Learning To Love You More'

Assignment #55: Photograph A Significant Outfit. Miranda July, every twenty-something's favorite writer/director/artist, started the website'Learning To Love You More' with artist Hermann Fletcher in 2002. The premise is simple, 'assignments' are posed and visitors complete the assignments and submit their responses thereafter. The assignments require no money or intellectual wherewithall and, as explained on the site, are 'intended to to guide people towards their own experience.' Among 'Make an Encouraging Banner' and 'Draw A Picture of Your Friend's Friend' is assignment #55, 'Photograph A Significant Outfit'.


The results from assignment #55 span every occasion and sentiment, and include captions like "What I wore on the last day of school' and 'What I was wearing when he saw me from the ferris wheel (and my heart beat a million miles an hour and I blew a kiss to him).' Per the instructions, outfits are lain on the ground, shirts tucked into pants, socks peeking out from trousers, and photographed in all their significant/insignificant glory. Because we haven't the time to plan our outfits weeks in advance and because we cannot predict events that will ultimately transform our lives, we think this assignment really touches on a peculiar but important distinction. Namely, that clothes are an extension of self, but never, dare we say it, are things the other way around.
