What is Fashion?
What is fashion? Meriam-Webster defines fashion as a popular way of dressing during a particular time or among a particular group of people; the business of creating and selling clothes in new styles. (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fashion)
How do I define fashion? I believe it can’t be define, but it can be described – fashion is beautiful, inspirational, fun, creative, abstract, art, expressive. We are surrounded by fashion…nature, animals, buildings, automobiles, people, land, literally everywhere!
Fashion is more than just the material (clothing) that you put on your body. Fashion is a way for each and every individual to express themselves, be true to their uniqueness. It’s a way for you to embrace YOU. Fashion is opinionated…it’s not exacted, it’s not concrete…it is what you make it. Fashion is in your breath, your smile, your eyes, your heart and your soul. You should never be afraid of fashion.
My love for fashion is more than just how it makes others look…My love for fashion is how it makes others feel. It can easily transform a shy, timid person into a bold, confident person. But in reality it isn’t a transformation but a revelation – Revealing the true spirit of that person.
I could go on and on BUT
