Fashion is for ever changing, that is a certainty. We are overwhelmed by these trends ,of what is in and what not , shoes , jackets, t-shirts, apparel, accessories ,fitness and the list goes on all endorsed by the media, retailers and movies showing us what to wear.

Clothes Define and categorize us!
However you are dressed you will be categorized in some form or way. Shorts flip flops and a t-shirt. You might be laid back individual o off to the beach or having a lazy lounge day. Suite and tie with shiny ones on your feet. This screams a professional that takes his life seriously, a jet setter if you will. You get the point. What we wear gives us a stereo type identity dominated by the fashion industry
There are many reasons we wear what we wear. Fashion is not called a statement by chance and every one of us has a story to tel. You see the most of the time the story told is perceived by the clothes we wear. How about that.
We wear what we wear for many reasons inspired by either emotional states, whether and climate, special occasions, religion our environment and our occupations. Therefore Fashion is Big Business. Millions of people are involved in the industry whether is buying or selling, manufacturing, design or even mending, sowing, dyeing and stitching everything together.
Fashion the endless popularity contest.
Popular fashions are not easy to keep track of. Most of the time it’s not known how clothing designed for the in the UK became a trend on the runways of Paris and other parts of the world. Even jeans are one the most worn item around the world and that designed by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873.Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured.
Agreed. It’s so much easier today to see what is trending via social media, TV ads and magazines but the direction is solely reliant on us the buyers and wearers, the individuals who react to events, and trends in music, art and books.
Fashion is a dark horse, a mixture of state of mind and spirit, an addition of self-reflection if you will. Fashion the essence of being comfortable with oneself, it speaks as an understated whisper, a subtle gesture, a smile, a daring scream to liberate a bold relentless projection of self-image.
