What is fashion?
A hard question as there isn’t a definitive answer. My first point of reference, the dictionary.
Fashion: A popular or the latest style of clothing, hair, decoration, or behaviour.
I obviously agree that fashion is led by the latest trends. However I wouldn’t define being fashionable as wearing the most popular and seasonal products. To me it’s about personal style and interpretation. The clothes we wear tell our own unique style story, it creates a sense of silent communication that everyone can relate to.
Whether we like it or not the way we dress defines how we are perceived. First impressions are key and even though we hate to admit it everyone is slightly judgemental with an initial meeting.
Fashion gives us the gift of expression. It’s all about YOU and not a reflection on everyone else’s opinion. There is nothing more refreshing than seeing someone walk down the street wearing something different with a bit of quirky flair. I always try to adapt the new trends and put my own spin on them. We all have different tastes and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Fashion would be very boring otherwise!
