chronicling the current aesthetic trends, habits, and thoughts of todayâ€™s influencer market across America.
// part photo documentary // part audience insight study // part social experiment
// overview The Fabric Project was developed to uncover the true and current thoughts of the Gen X, Y & Z influencer market, the segment of our population either holding or soon taking the reigns of our world. This project is designed to not only state - but to dig, document, chronicle, and archive these findings within a living social project ~ part photo documentary, part audience insight study, part social experiment. As our social & digital age has proven, not only does everyone have a voice ~ most want to share it. Itâ€™s time we as a society gain something from this willingness and ability to share... whether details, statistics, or ideas.

part photo documentary // part audience insight study // part social experiment
// scope The Fabric Project kicks off with the National Road Tour hitting key markets across America to photograph and interview â€œsubjectsâ€?. With a street-level, van-deployed photo booth or photographed in their unique environment, we will be inviting subjects to participate in a quick portrait photography session followed by a survey of robust, valuable, and in-depth questions spanning from their creative ideas to political views, to what they are wearing, to societal beliefs. Embracing a fashion-forward, contemporary mind-set, and a contributing existence - our subjects will be those generally labeled as influencers ~ those that conceive, create, evolve, and share ideals, thoughts and trends ~ and have a valuable opinion far behind the typical, homogenized statistics usually gathered in consumer insight studies.

This project started as a concept to get out of the studio and get on the road to gather consumer insight. It has evolved into a socially relevant, market authentic, needed project ... in our opinion. As fellow labeled â€œinfluencersâ€?, we find there is so much more value in what we are thinking than just the historically homogenized group we represent in the typical terms of age, house-hold income, gender etc. The elusive influencer, more so than any other cultural segment has opinions, likes and dislikes, aspirations, fears, concerns, and ideas to offer ~ to brands, to fashion, to politics, to ethics ... to society as a whole. And potentially hidden within this audience uncovered by this project - the next big idea to evolve our society is uncovered.
