(Visual Description of Episode) – The video opens with upbeat music and views of New York City, while Aidan Mack exercises with a jump rope.
The screen shifts to her turning down a road lined with green trees in a red motorcycle, while a red car passes by. Aidan Mack then appears in a fancy closet/fitting room wearing a black dress with black heels, while she spins around looking in the mirror. The screen then shows Aidan Mack sitting in a dressing room at a Hollywood-style vanity mirror, lined in a circle with bright light bulbs where the camera films her reflection in the mirror as she flips her hair and whips out her magenta, pink lipstick applying it to her lips with a grin into the mirror. Aidan Mack is then seen in the center of New York City, standing in the middle of Time Square where the camera circles her as she looks around with an astonished look in her eyes and face at the flashing lights and billboards surrounding her. The host, Aidan Mack then opens her show as she walks down Time Square’s glowing, ruby-red stairs while bystanders sitting behind her on the stairs watch her introduce her show in American Sign Language (ASL).
The screen shifts to The Aidan Mack Show logo (dark blue and black background with a cartoon figure of Aidan Mack in a black dress and heels holding up the ASL hand shape for ‘I Love You,’ standing next to three shopping bags (pink, blue, and yellow) lined up in size order with the website: www.aidanmack.com below.
The episode opens with Aidan Mack wearing a teal/brown ruffled sleeveless shirt with black pants and black stiletto heels. Her brown, short hair is worn down. She is sitting in front of a vintage, finished wood panels that create a tarnished-bronze and brown looking wood background on a hot pink chair that is formed in the shape of a big hand. On the wood behind her, displays The Aidan Mack Show logo to Aidan’s left with 3 pictures of pink hearts as trees in the pink grass to the side of the logo, each one with different background sky colors. Below the three pictures is a small black table against the wall that has a pink picture frame of an eye on the wall. On the table, there are pink and yellow tulips in a vase with a red heart on it. Next to the flowers is a glass cup of water. The cup reads, “Drink What You Love.”
Hello everyone and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show.
I’m Aidan Mack, the host here!
It’s a pleasure to have you all here today.
Today, we are going to discuss FAAASHHHIOOON!
Of course, we all love clothes! Today, we’ll be discussing some of the trends and looks I’ve found for Fall and Winter 2017 from various fashion blogs and websites. The list of Fall and Winter looks are endless; I will highlight a couple of my favs that caught my eye and share them with you all!
We all know a girl’s BFF is high-heels. High-heels make us look our best! Absolutely love them!
(Picture appears on the wall of a red high heel)
There are so many reasons to rock heels, but unfortunately, they do come with a package; the excruciating pain. If you walk for a long period of time with them on or if you have to get somewhere fast and pick up the pace, and even if you’re just standing because there’s nowhere to sit, heels definitely put a strain on our feet, knees, hips, and back. Heels are not really healthy for our feet and our bodies in general.
Guess what?! We can now be comfortable while keeping up with fashion because the new footwear trend for girls is flat shoes, our new BFFs. Yes! I’m sure you ladies out there are excited about this new trend. Finally, we can wear flat shoes for any situation; nightclubs, corporate events, and even for the everyday lounging around the house look. It’s really nice that we can put some ease on our feet, knees, hips, and our backs. This is such great fashion news!

And do you see this picture how a scarf was added as an accessory and wrapped around the ankle? Gorgeous, right? Definitely adding that look/style to my wardrobe! Those loafers are from the Free People collection!

The next look is known as Fun Fur!
WAIT! HOLD UP, to all of the Animal Rights Activists watching, Fun Fur uses faux fur! So it’s pretty much safe! The Fun Fur line looks great, it feels cozy and warm against your skin and it gives you that feeling that blankets did when we were kids who liked to snuggle up with our blanket and feel as if we’re home. And Fun Fur also makes you look good too! Great for casual wear, in professional settings, and even for clubbing and parties.
Next on my look list, the one shoulder dress!
(Insert picture on the wall a patterned one-shoulder dress look)
The designer for this look is Dion Lee.
The one-shoulder look you can wear regardless of the situation casual, business, and even for nightclub/parties. Just think, you go to work wearing your suit jacket over your one shoulder dress and then once the workday is over you can head out to a nightclub, 86 the suit jacket, put it in your bag, and dance the night away! Nice and convenient, right? I’ve now noticed a trend among fashion designers that they’re thinking more thoroughly on fashion designs that are most convenient to us as opposed to having one outfit that limits you to a specific type of event. With that mindset, we are in many ways just throwing money away and ending up with a huge pile of clothes we only wore once and will probably never wear any of it again. This design is from the
It’s great that fashion designers are now being more conscientious by making clothes that can fit a variety of settings and the ability to mix up pieces so it doesn’t look like you’re wearing the same thing over and over again. It’s really nice.
(Insert picture of a black leather jumpsuit look)
This is the Leather look.
Oooh! I love leather! I don’t know what it is, I just find leather to be visually mesmerizing. And again, leather is great to wear for any situation. Such as, wearing leather pants with a silk blouse and you’re ready to go to work as a professional. Then, when the workday is done you can go to happy hour without having to change your outfit! It’s really awesome that leather works pretty much anywhere. Calvin Klein was the designer behind this full leather jumpsuit! Looking at this picture, I think I want to go ahead and purchase myself a full leather jumpsuit too! Leather jackets are always a go to, and you can even get a leather shirt, pants, and shoes. But for those of you who care about animals and don’t like the idea of wearing real leather, you can wear faux leather that looks like real leather.
Now our next piece is the “Hot Mess” looks which were designed by Fashion East.
(Insert picture of a colorful “hot mess” look from the runway)
You might be thinking what is Hot Mess? So one day I was on the subway on my way to an event. A girl got on the train and I just couldn’t believe my eyes. Whoa! She was wearing busy, colorful and mismatching clothes; a plaid striped top with pants covered in flowers, and she was covered in tattoos. I had to do a double take. At first, I was taken aback, but she still looked great! Then I realized, that makes sense, hot mess, a messy ensemble but still looking hot thus the term ‘Hot Mess’. Now it’s becoming a real popular trend, which I guess that means we could just get out of bed, pick out random clothing in the dark, put them on and walk out the door. And then people will call you a hot mess! Awesome, right?
Have you all been noticing that more and more people having political statement slogans as part of their attire?
(Insert picture of 3 people wearing shirts with slogans; one says: “The Future is Female,” another says: “Our minds, our bodies, our power,” and the other says, “Nevertheless, she persisted.”)
For example, women can do anything and are proud of being a woman. We are somebody. Especially with what’s been going on with politics, it’s quite unfortunate that women are seen as inferior to men and as second-class citizens. Society views women as voiceless/powerless. Women should allow men to control their body. But now we’re using our voices, enough is enough! So make a political statement! If you’re wondering who designed this collection, it was Prabal Gurung.
The designer wanted to make a statement with this collection, letting the world know WOMEN CAN DO ANYTHING. And I second that!
Which leads to our next discussion regarding style. The color of the year for Fall/Winter 2017 is…. RED! POW!
Such a power color!
(Insert picture of a red outfit from top to bottom on the runway)
We are creating fire to protect America! You’ll be starting noticing more and more people sporting red because it’s loud!
Thank you for watching my show!
And I just want to say thank you to Casey and Domenick.
(The two interpreters appear signing, “Thank you, Bye!”)
Make sure you all share all the information about this show and make it viral! To your friends, coworkers…your friends on FB! Anyone really!
Thank you for your time! Ciao!
