Fashion changes every single day. Whether the new trend is tie-dye, Cashmere everything, or fabulous face masks, new styles are made daily. Fashion is all about taste, confidence, and innovation. Over time fashion will become more appealing as our tastes develop. What are we interested in? Is it eco-friendliness? Turning clothes into elephant dung and natural materials just like paper. Is it color? Turning our clothes to canvases and displaying them as we walk with pride. Taste means and is something different to every single person that lives on this planet. It is when someone has found something that looks fit on them, and what suits their coloring and body shape.
But fashion can only work with confidence, it can mean “ pieces that inspire you to be the best you that is possible ” according to Malan Breton, a fashion designer. The fact that a piece of fabric can make you feel great about yourself something quite powerful. Rose Ferreira says that fashion is in motion and that this movement has started, and that there’s no way it’s going to stop. All it takes is for one person to wear something unique and boom, it becomes a new trend.
Change ties into every single aspect of fashion, you can’t draw eyes if people wear the same thing every single day. Having new ideas and things that make you go “hey, I want that!” are what makes fashion so interesting. In simpler words, something that is DIFFERENT.
In the beginning, fashion was used to cover our bodies from the cold, and harsh nature, but now? What is the meaning and purpose of fashion? Well, many like repeller.com say that it is “Decorating ourselves in particular things helps to craft an identity, which creates the illusion of permanency.” Right, so what does that mean exactly? Well, it means that fashion allows you to surround yourself and “decorate” yourself to feel loved and be in your own space that you feel comfortable in. But how do we find that? If you search up what fashion looks like, you can scroll through the pictures endlessly. There are so many combos, and dresses, shoes, shirts, jeans, rompers, vests, jackets, and so much more that there will never be 10 or even 100 or even 10,000 images that can show what this huge part of our daily lives look like. Every single piece of fabric that we buy at a store, or shop portrays our specific taste.
Even though fashion can be many people’s way to express themselves, it also causes a lot of stress. That is one of the main reasons why schools use uniforms. According to thegaurdian.com “ a uniform means students don't have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn't so important.” So does this mean that fashion will die out, or thrive in the future? Two paths and we get to decide which one. Do we care enough about what we look like and what we and others think of us? Or do we not mind if fashion fades out of our daily lives, and we wear the same thing as everyone else? The future is once again in all of our hands.
