Wearing our Identity/ Porter son identité (Musée McCord, Montréal)



When I was in Montreal, I went to the McCord museum. There is a permanent exhibition called "wearing our Identity. The First People Collection". It is about the culture and traditions of First Nations, Inuit and Metis. Also, the main subject was about the importance and power of clothes in the development of heritage, communication, social backgrounds and identities... You are what you wear. This exhibition inspired me so much. I spent time reading the explanations and texts. I always thought that clothes are not only utilitarian. I actually think it is sad to say we only wear clothes to dress or to stay safe in cold weather. It is much more interesting to interpret the codes, the messages of our clothes, hairstyles, makeups, colours, prints... We all consciously or unconsciously express our Identity through our style. The way we would be dressed, depending on context, date would have a specific message. Just learn to read about it! 
 What do you think?

Quand j'étais à Montréal, je suis allée au Musée McCord. Il y a une exposition permanente dont le nom est « Porter son identité. La collection Premiers Peuples. » Elle porte sur la culture et les traditions des Premiers Peuples, des Inuit et des Métis. Le sujet principal était surtout l'importance et le pouvoir des vêtements dans le développement de l'histoire, de la communication, du statut social et des identités... Vous êtes ce que vous portez. Cette exposition m'a beaucoup inspirée. J'ai passé du temps à lire les explications et les textes. J'ai toujours pensé que les vêtements n'étaient pas qu'utilitaires. C'est d'ailleurs triste de dire que les vêtements servent seulement à être portés ou à se protéger du froid. Il est beaucoup plus intéressant de décrypter les codes et les messages de nos vêtements, coiffures, maquillages, couleurs, imprimés... Nous exprimons tous, consciemment ou inconsciemment, notre identité à travers notre style. La manière dont on s'habillerait en fonction d'un contexte ou d'un rendez-vous aurait un message plus spécifique. Il faut juste apprendre à le déchiffrer!
Qu'en pensez vous?

  5. I couldn't agree with you more. Clothes are not just pieces of fabric, they are messages we send out to the world. Love the mismatched prints in your outfit!

  42. Je suis sure d'avoir publié un commentaire mais je ne le vois pas, je ne sais pas si tu devais l'approuver ou si ça a juste bugué mais en tout cas je disais que j'adorais l'association des motifs :) <3

    + Du coup je suis revenue par rapport à ton commentaire, oui je ne comprend pas GFC qui ne veut pas marcher, mais je crois que si tu ouvre la fenêtre pour t'abonner dans un nouvel onglet ça devrait aller ! (je sais pas si c'est très clair haha)

  59. These two prints go so well together , great!!!And I toatally agree that we always send some message with our look, the thing is not everyone thinks about clothes that way, and not everyone knows how to translate the message..
