I think I have some sort of weird infatuation with data visualizations. There is something about presenting hard numbers and words in a visually appealing/ accessible format that makes the nerdy artist in me all giddy.
Moving on, using the New York Times Article Search API, I was able to generate a list of the 15 names and organizations that appeared in the most “Fashion & Style” related NY Times articles from 1981 to now. At the top of the list of names are Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren. Of the organizations, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Council of Fashion Designers of America, FIT, Vogue and Chanel. Moving forward, I think it would be interesting to create a visualization that will illustrate the relationships and draw connections between the top figures in the fashion world.
