‘This is Happening’ event series blends poetry, fashion design

James Island-based mostly artist Rolf Anthony Youthful developed “This is Going on,” an celebration sequence mixing poetry and style, after attending an open up mic poetry evening hosted by FreeVerse Poetry Competition. 

As he listened to the poets with his eyes shut, he began to imagine what it would look like to showcase style together with poetry performance. He built a shirt and gifted it to North Charleston-dependent poet Chris Wynn to use throughout a functionality. 

“I created some shirts, and Chris wore a single to an open mic,” Younger mentioned. “He walked up on phase and performed. It was lovely, and then the seed was planted, like, ‘Oh, there’s something right here.’” 

The interactivity of open mic functions also impressed Young to create this new structure, as he sees fashion exhibits as usually passive activities.

“Let’s incorporate [the fashion show] with a poetry impact, so not only do you see a little something, but you listen to anything, and you might truly feel anything, far too,” he explained.
