Need help with making an entry for American Fashion PodcastEdit

I previously created a page tracking all the episodes of American Fashion Podcast, but it was deleted "because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic." I spent several hours figuring out how to post and inputting all the information, so it was really frustrating to have it deleted. Most of what I compiled did get rebuilt as the Episodes List page on the AFP site.

That was several months ago, and the show is now up past 60 episodes with a ton of interviews with both famous designers and lesser known behind the scenes artists, entrepreneurs, and educators. There is now press coverage from Harper's Bazaar, Huffington Post, Bustle, American Manufacturing, and Put This On.

I'm admittedly not very good at editing Wikipedia, the complex syntax really throws me. I would like to get some help in putting it together again, but right this time. added by Fashiontechguru 9pm EST, 22 August 2015, updated 11:30am on 23 August 2015

Photos from fashion exhibitEdit

The Denver Art Museum recently held an exhibit on the fashion house of Dior and I managed to take several good quality images of the dresses featured in the exhibit. I was wondering if images from such an exhibit can be used on Wikipedia freely? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SpiritedMichelle (talkcontribs) 2019-02-17T02:04:21 (UTC)

@SpiritedMichelle: Thank you for asking. I don't see why not; we've had this conversation before.

Generally, in the U.S., clothing cannot be copyrighted as it is a useful article. That was a blanket general rule that applied to all aspects of clothing until the U.S. Supreme Court decided Star Athletica, LLC v. Varsity Brands, Inc. a couple of years ago, in which it held that purely aesthetic aspects of clothing can be copyrighted as long as their function can be found to be entirely separate from the functions that make clothing useful and can be art separate from the clothing it's on.

The EU enacted copyright protection for fashion a few years ago but not many manufacturers have taken the time to register their clothing.

Of course, having read this far, you'll feel you've wasted your time since I'm about to tell you that this doesn't matter. Assuming the Dior dresses you photographed are old enough, like from the last century, they predate any copyright protection and thus photos of them would be free images as long as you, the photographer, publish them that way (which of course you would have to at Commons).

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tri-EssEdit

Noting Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tri-Ess here, as the nom claims that the organization, which represents cross-dressers, is transphobic. Comments would be appreciated. Historyday01 (talk) 02:57, 28 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Practice head/hairdresser training headsEdit

Hi there,

I created d:Q117162798 : practice head (with barber mannequin head or barber head as aliases) and commons:Category:Practice heads. It doesn't have any wikipedia article. Then I found out the doublet commons:Category:Hairdresser training heads. These categories have to be merged. English is not my first language, how should I name the category on Commons? Thanks!

I chose "Hairdresser training heads". Astirmays (talk) 20:21, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Does Draft:M-52 Flak Jacket meet notability criteriaEdit

Is there a more specific page about notability criteria for this than WP:Notability - draft written by Halebraedonf - does it meet notability criteria? - (I am a new draft reviewer and this is not my strong topic area) Thanks Gryllida (talk, e-mail) 23:27, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
