Some people see fashion as a work of art where others view it as a religion but the latest fashion is where everyone has their focus on.
Fashion is changing all the time. If you look back in time at the styles, you will notice that what once was old eventually returns as fashion. The skirt lengths have gone up and down and heels go from chunky to stiletto and back again and that will continue.
When talking about fashion it is hard not to discuss clothing; and when speaking about clothes, it is hard to omit the influence of art. Thus, these three words go hand in hand to give meaning to each other. Art, clothing, and fashion influence each other and provide basis for us to understand each one. Anyone who has ever visited an art show or art museum can easily see that art comes in various forms. Art ranges from an oil painting hanging on the wall to a statue made out of diamonds. In the same way, fashion may be presented through different clothing each falling in different categories like; evening, gala, night, beach wear, etc.
Today, everywhere you look, you see fashion. It’s inspired by the simple things like the sky, the earth. The way the wind blows, the way the waves crash against the rocks. Fashion mimics LIFE! We all get inspired by something we see. Sometimes it can be our escape from the world, our Utopia of all things beautiful. Beauty is not defined by appearance, but by what it is or what it represents. I can bravely say that Fashion is a way of thinking even more – way of life. But Fashion could be nothing without Style.
What is style? Put simply, it is the way something–anything–is done. There are no limits to how something can be expressed, designed or presented, whether that thing is a story, a staircase or a shoe. That’s why to me Fashion is what you are offered four times a year. Style is what you pick out of that fashion… It’s what you make of it once you’ve learned what to accept and ignore based on what looks good on and is comfortable for You!
