forget what the other "definers" of fashion stated.
fashion is not just a form of art, its to be inspired and create something that doesn't have to be necessarily real. it doesnt have to be a preference of the public, but more of the designer who decides. fashion is also an opinion. its bringing back what used to be "in" and make it 'in' again. bringing the old things back, for people to see that if times change, if someone keeps old fashion fresh, it'll never grow old (at least for a long time).
take Taxi for example, andy warhols first love. she made the mini skirt because she wanted to prove that she could live on her own without her family looking down on her. she could only afforn cheap clothes, and since she was so small, she would shop in the kids department. the mini skirt was made.
fashionistas take everything into consideration, well, most i guess. and you dont have to wear the parachute pants, or the glitter stockings, you don't have to afford it, but another crowd can, and another crowd may love it. because fashion isnt just for the closet, it can be a gallery of art.
Fashion is made up of previous inspirations. And what you made of it will be an inspiration for something else involving fashion, art, originality, culture, or anything in the world
a sense of style that changes from decade to decade, century to century. each era of fashion can change by very little or drastically.
Clothing from the 17th century is cool, but what the fuck was a thinking in the 80s?!
Fashionable adj. - fashion, noun - fashion, verbmore...
Today this word seems to mean "anything that's too hideous and freaky to even wear on the catwalk - too freaky and garish for even Vivienne Westwood or John Galliano to contemplate showing".
It also means stuff that 5 years ago was being ignored in charity shops and jumble sales as being too frumpy and out-of-date.
Not so long ago, people would look at the shit that walked down the catwalk and just hang their mouth open cuz it was so godawful weird.(BTW - this definition almost exlusively applies to women of course. We were told, "oh the styles will be watered down before it gets to the shops for ordinary mortals to try to fucking figure out how to wear."
So by the time it got to the shops, it was almost unrecognisable as being associated with anything seen on the catwalk. But it would still be different enough to terrorise women into thinking that if they don't wear it, they won't look cool, or if they do wear it, they will look silly and foolish. What to do??
Of course, every season brings new colours and accessories, so that nothing goes with anything else you have bought in the last 6 months - oh how we just lamely accept and buy without question! Everything totally different so they make more and more money from these stupid people too dumb to figure out what the hell's going on, or if they are smart enough, to fucking apathetic to care and scared to look uncool.
This definition is quite extreme but...
The prevailing style or custom, as in dress, or behavior.
Something such as garment, that is in the current mode.
Fashion is not always expensive clothes. Fashion is not what all the popular girls at school are wearing. Fashion is creating a garment and being different. Fashion is developing a style. Fashion never gets old, it just gets re-created. There is no right or wrong in fashion. Fashion trends are started//developed by looking at another culture, or more ideas after you have developed a personal style. Fashion started with our earliest designers and followed with our more popular designers. Examples. Gabrielle Coco Chanel, Ives Saint Laurent, Gucci, Dolce, Fendi, Renne Lacoste, Hermes, Mui Mui, Karl Lagerfield, Christian Dior, Gorgio Armani, Donatella Versace, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Givenchy , Donna Karan, Anna Sui, Nicole Miller, Betsy Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and SO MANY MORE. Fashion isnt just whats in, its also whats out. Remember fashion is creating and re-creating, and its never the same. Without fashion pop-art, and pop-culture would be so much different. So dont think that fashion is just what all the cool kids wear, cause its not. Fashion never dies.
Examples. All the Fashion designers i named above.
*Sevens for all man kind
* and remember even Wal-Mart has its designers
Something so damn hideous it must be changed every season to spare our eyes, unfortunately not our wallets.
Anyone still wear parachute pants? Yeah - didn't think so. There goes a hundred bucks dimwit, fashion at its best I'm sure.
taking your creativity and turning it into clothes
