Here at Palomar College fashion flows through the sea of students. Amongst this sea of bright colors is always one person whose style is so unique people are instantly drawn to it. Usually we tend to find themselves inspired by others fashion choices, follow a closely related pattern of accessories and discover ways to improve their own style.

Everyday is an opportunity to show the world who you are, and creating a unique style is a way to earn yourself the spotlight, as fellow Palomar College student Braxton Marcellous has done himself.

Being inspired by the world of music and its history, Marcellous has manufactured his attire creatively. Flowing designs inspired by classic ‘80s rock bands allows him not only to express himself, but to be the artist he is. Majoring in Audio Engineering, Marcellous’s inspiration comes from his wide interests in music, as he puts it “an umbrella of genres.”

From indie, metal, pop music and ‘80s hard rock he allows his style to speaks volumes. Burgundy skinny jeans, purple designed button-up, black leather shoes, and a 1980s top hat along with the accessories he rocks, Marcellous is an example of vintage fashion.

Having this type of style also requires a routine search for vintage clothing that he finds at thrift shops. With his mother’s designs and sewing, Marcellous said he finds his style inspiration from home as well.

Marcellous explained, “(My) self expression is from music. I choose clothing based on whatever inspires me.”

As all great artists do, the style they create can have a significant impact on the way fashion is driven. This is true for many great artists, and in some cases allows them to stand out as Marcellous has done with both his music, and his style.

Iconic musicians from Kiss to the material girl Madonna, these artists carry different yet important roles in fashion. Style takes different opportunities, seeks change, and through unique styles we can create who we are, or even who we want to be.

Along side new trends of the fashion world many great constituents here on campus have begun. Styles here keep the SoCal vibes moving forward with male styles extending from beach boy to mature and relaxed.

The beauty in fashion is that inspiration can come from anything. Influenced by many of our favorite things, we explore ways to incorporate them into our lives, and most recognizably in what we wear. From a distance we sometimes neglect our impulse to tell people how they inspire us by captivating our appreciation of creativity and admiration.
