"Society, man! You know, society! Cause, you know what I don't understand? I don't understand why people, why every fucking person is so bad to each other so fucking often. It doesn't make sense to me. Judgment. Control. All that, the whole spectrum."

OSFA stands for onesizefitsall. The one thing that everyone has in common. The one thing that we can confidently say that we all are. We're all human. Yes, we're different in color, shape and size, but we all have hearts beating in our chests and dreams that we hope will come true. This line is for those who feel different, who feel that they don't belong in this world at times. It represents the people who feel that they can't be themselves or show the world who they really are. Don't let anyone tell you what to do, who to be, or that you need to change yourself to fit what society deems appropriate. If you want lime green liberty spikes then rock it. If you want three inch plugs dangling from your ears then wear them. Who cares what people think, we're all the same. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

 

Chapter One:
Growing up, I always felt I was a bit mature for my age. I was given the opportunity to go over seas and see how others lived in various countries. This definitely shaped me as a person to be able to understand what the real world is going to endure. One thing that I never really understood though, was why everyone cared so much about appearance. "Wear this, don't wear that." "Oh my, look at her hair, why did her parents let her do that?" "Look at the holes in his ears!" Why did outsiders judge people from just their appearance? Why do people who are covered with tattoos not get hired for jobs that are in a professional setting? Why I almost didn't get hired at a job for having blue hair at one point in my life? Questions in which the answers never satisfied me.

I dont just feel, but i know, that it is very important for all individuals to be able to show off their own styles and their own interests in their clothing and their appearance. THAT is what makes us all different right? I want to dedicate this line to those who aren't afraid to be who they are. Who get the dirty looks, who go out of the house looking as they please, weather it's appealing to the eye or not, and for the ones who don't care what people think. 

We're going to take over.

As for the future
I would love to start up a non-profit organization against bullying. The kids who are getting bullied and made fun of in school are getting picked on for one reason only, because they're different. This is something that my line welcomes and encourages. Being a victim to bullying in my younger years, a lot of people didn't realize it was ever a problem as I was growing up. I would love to give back to the community to raise awareness to what's going on in schools and playgrounds around the world.

My name is Rachel Lopez, and I'm going to be a senior at Kutztown University working towards a BFA in Communication Design. I'm 21, a poor college student, and I want this to be my life. Since i'm broke, these are all photoshopped images. I don't have any real product yet & I only have an instagram. I've been busting my butt trying to get money, but you can only do so much when your're making minumim wage at a slum shop. There are so many good ideas and products being thrown around during this workshop, I'm so privledged to be apart of it.

If you took the time out to even read all of this, thanks.

All of the collections that I am creating will all be based off of people that I have met throughout my life. The names might be different, but their stories are real. Each will have short description of what they represent, so in turn, the customer will be able to relate.
