Engagement Project

The area that I choose for my engagement project is Flushing, Queens. Flushing is very unique. One street would be full of houses and another would be full of run-down apartment buildings.  My neighborhood is very convenient. My elementary, junior, and high school were within a five minute walking distance from my house. There are multiple delis, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, laundromats, and parks within a few minutes from each other. Queens is one of the most diverse places in the world. There are areas with Hispanics and African Americans There are plenty of Jews and Muslims.



In the streets you can see women wearing a salwar kameez and girls with headscarves. Although there are different types of people living in my area, most people still wear similar street attire. People are no longer steeping out of their houses wearing bright, summery clothing. Everyone is rocking the latest fall fashions. Bomber and varsity jackets are in style. Girls are rocking new boots and ripped jeans. They have chokers on their necks paired with dark lipstick. Fur and velvet clothing are in. Men are wearing ripped jeans with camel colored boots and dark sneakers. Bomber jackets, sweats, and hoodies are also part of their everyday attire. We are all different, yet fashion always manages to bring everyone together.
