Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Fashion GPS[edit]

Hello fashion experts. This old Afc submission is about to be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable subject, and are the references reliable? If so. the tone can be edited to remove promotion, but otherwise it would be a waste of time. —Anne Delong (talk) 19:13, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Wallpaper group theory[edit]

Wallpaper group is an article written by mathematicians but this can explain a lot in fashion. To summarize the article, there is a classification of patterns which, if applied, can put any pattern into 1 of 17 categories.

I would be interested to learn if any research has ever been done to track cultural preferences for textile prints and weaves using any of these wallpaper groups in preference to others, and if this model gives insight to historical migration of fashion tastes or explains current trends.

Right now seemingly no fashion articles link to this article. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:47, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Barbers and hairdressers[edit]

FYI Category:Barbers has been proposed to be merged to Category:Hairdressers and the equivalent fictional categories. -- (talk) 06:13, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Rodeo Drive Walk of Style[edit]

Some eyes on here would be nice; student assignment happening.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 20:56, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Francois Russo[edit]

Dear fashion experts: Is this a notable designer, and should this Abandoned Afc submission be kept and improved? The editor added additional references as requested by the reviewer, but then never resubmitted. —Anne Delong (talk) 15:45, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Anne Delong! I had a quick look and a quick scan for sources, etc, and from what I saw, I think he probably passes the notability barrier, particularly if the article is about both him and the company Maison Takuya. The pic REALLY needs cropping down. The sources look mostly fine to me. So yes, I think I would approve this article, as long as the picture is cut down. Mabalu (talk) 16:40, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I will crop and reupload now.--ukexpat (talk) 19:17, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--ukexpat (talk) 19:20, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, ukexpat. I have added a couple of extra sources and removed some promotional language. —Anne Delong (talk) 19:47, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

New article, take a look[edit]

Outfit of the day, surprised no one started it. Needs work and expansion. Feel free to help. Tinton5 (talk) 23:30, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Joan Smalls[edit]

FYI, this page has been hijacked by an user with serious ownership issues bent on restoring a revision that clearly fails to comply with the MOS. He has reverted every user that tries to edit "his" revision and for some reason, even tried to impersonate an admin by placing a stale protection template in it. (talk) 00:11, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Neutral notification of image deletion discussion[edit]

Help requested w/ Nail polish[edit]

Could I get some help improving Nail polish? Seems like it has so much potential (and maybe some danger of being bombed w/ POV brand-promotion?)! thx... JDanek007Talk 05:28, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Boris Bidjan Saberi[edit]

Dear fashion experts: Is this a notable designer, and should this old Afc submission be kept and improved instead of being deleted as a stale draft? —Anne Delong (talk) 15:14, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Anne Delong - I think he's probably notable - the name rings a bell. I'm certainly sure I have heard of him recently. I do wonder whether he doesn't already have an article on him or one was recently speedy deleted as promotional... Mabalu (talk) 16:37, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I was thinking of Bijan (designer), but I'm pretty sure this guy is quite notable too. Will take a closer look at the article. Mabalu (talk) 16:39, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to do this. I am willing to remove any promotional stuff, but I since my idea of fashion is checking to make sure that my shoes match, I would prefer that someone else decide whether it's worth doing. —Anne Delong (talk) 16:44, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Anne Delong - I've just quickly overhauled the submitted article. It hit me just as I was finishing it up where I recognised him from...! - but I think what I've done is sufficient to demonstrate his notability - hopefully good enough to avoid it being chucked out a fourth time in a row! Mabalu (talk) 18:20, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
It's in mainspace and appears to be sticking this time....thanks! —Anne Delong (talk) 19:37, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Ottawa fashion week[edit]

Dear fashion experts: Here's an old abandoned Afc submission that I have been improving, but I am not a fashion expert. Have I added appropriately reliable references? Is the draft ready for mainspace? I would appreciate help from someone who understands better what this is all about. —Anne Delong (talk) 19:11, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I have moved that article to mainspace. —Anne Delong (talk) 20:09, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Auguste Soesastro[edit]

Here's yet another old Afc submission about a person in the fashion industry. Should this page be kept and improved, or should it be deleted as a stale draft? —Anne Delong (talk) 23:43, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Indonesian fashion designers are usually pretty well covered by The Jakarta Post and other publications. Looks like adding sources to support the statements should be pretty straightforward as it seems well written otherwise, but I will have a look for proper notability evidence. Mabalu (talk) 00:28, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Angel Rivera Couture[edit]

Dear editors: Some of these sources are obviously not reliable, but others need someone with fashion expertise to check them out/ Should the article be deleted as a stale draft? —Anne Delong (talk) 00:55, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Douglas Richard Ferguson[edit]

Dear fashion experts: Here's another abandoned Afc submission that will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable designer? Should the article be kept and improved? —Anne Delong (talk) 03:05, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi again, Anne Delong - this guy SOUNDS like he should be notable but the article is ABSOLUTELY crammed with unsourced stuff. Sounds autobiographical, but if he is represented in that many collections/museums, has had that long a career, and the pictures (albeit copyvio?) show evidence of coverage in major fashion publications, then he OUGHT to be at least worth a simple stub. Mabalu (talk) 09:34, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Mabalu. I will postpone deletion pending better sourcing and request a copyright check on the images. —Anne Delong (talk) 09:51, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
No worries. Noticing the user who created it, it is UBER-autobiographical, massive conflict of interest stuff, but will tackle it, if necessary wiping clean and starting over again with bare essentials. Mabalu (talk) 10:08, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Mabalu, I see that you've done a fair amount of work on this. Let me know if you think it's ready for mainspace. —Anne Delong (talk) 11:03, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Anne Delong yes, I think it's ready to go into mainspace, but the images need checking for possible copyright violation. Do take a look at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Auguste Soesastro too, please. Mabalu (talk) 11:19, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, Mabalu, they are both in mainspace now, and I have left a message at WP:Copyright problems about the images. Thanks for taking time to fix these up. —Anne Delong (talk) 12:01, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Bikini on peer review[edit]

Anna Paola bikini.jpg

Bikini, one of the oldest articles of this project has gone into a peer review here. It was created on Novemeber 1, 2001, One day after Japan. That was before Abraham Lincoln (Nov 4), France (Nov 4) and California (Nov 17) were created on Wikipedia. (courtesy: TonyTheTiger) It also is a highly viewed article. If you search for Bikini using google the first return is this article. Page visitation reached its highest in 2011, and the highest number of visitors come from India, Mexico and Spain.

A lot of work has gone into the article. It kept expanding and eventually three new spin-off articles were created - History of the bikini (a good article), Bikini in popular culture and Bikini variants. The popular culture article split its own spin-offs into Category:Individual bikinis. The variants article in turn split into specific articles for Monokini and Tankini. Work has gone into other related article as well, like Thong (clothing) and Bikini waxing.

The review is not a success because of low participation. Can you participate, please? Aditya(talkcontribs) 21:10, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Don't worry about that too much ... all peer reviews are lightly attended, unfortunately. Daniel Case (talk) 03:04, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

I think this is a great idea. We should do it. Can we make it really glossy, like a ... fashion magazine? Daniel Case (talk) 17:41, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Met Gala exhibit/fashion themes[edit]

I may have to remove the list of Met Gala themes unless someone can find a source for it. The list was added by what is almost a WP:SPA with minimal other activity on WP. If you can help, please come by or comment at Talk:Met_Gala#Met_Gala_exhibit.2Ffashion_themes.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:06, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Notable Kerry Washington dress?[edit]

Is this Kerry Washington dress a notable individual dress?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 08:01, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

In my opinion? No. Never heard of it before, not sure I've seen it before, although I've not really looked into red carpet fashion for a while. I need to get back to those articles. It would need to have received repeated coverage, consideration and assessment to qualify as a notable individual dress, and I don't think it has. Probably worth a mention in a Red carpet fashion of 2013 article though. Mabalu (talk) 09:08, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Eyes needed...[edit]

at Talk:Leggings#What is wrong with a man in leggings? BMK (talk) 15:35, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

It would have been polite (albeit not essential I grant,) to let me know this had been requested, given I'm the other party in the issue. Chaheel Riens (talk) 15:44, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Fashion At Wikimania 2014 (updated version)[edit]

Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post that I made.

Project Leaflet WikiProject Medicine back and front v1.png

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

Eyes needed on Treats![edit]

I'm requesting eyes ( and input ) on the talk page of Talk:Treats!. On the article I removed an image here as I believed it failed NFCC 3, 5, & 8. I placed a note on the talk page with a detailed rationale, The admin chillum agreed with me , however, TonyTheTiger did not and he restored the image. I'm seeking consensus on whether or not this image violated NFCC 3,5 & 8. Thanks ! Kosh Vorlon    20:02, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Please note that the image was restored along with the addition of corresponding text in the article and further explaination on the talk page of the need for a color image so as not to mislead the reader into believing this is a black-and-white art magazine as might be inferred from the more famous image in the infobox.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:22, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Opinions needed for an RfC[edit]

I just opened up an RfC over on Treats! available right here . Feel free to stop by and give your opinion.
