What is Fashion?

What is fashion?

Can one item of clothing tie all ages, cultures and races together.

I want to do a fashion show where everyone is black,old,fat,asian whatever, different types because ultimately these are the ones who are buying the clothing, it’s not one type of race that buys clothes, everyone buys clothes. We need clothes to protect our skin and no matter how ‘high end’ or ‘low end’ it is, it’s going to be a colour, a shape, a fabric, pants, jacket, shirt, whatever! Who really defines what is fashion? Ourselves? The Media? Anything could be fashionable if it was glamourised, a 70 year old man wearing  stilettos and a potato sack could be fashion.

In today’s world, we are certainly not one type, we are not one shape or one age (quite frankly do you really want everyone to be the same?) it’s the beauty of difference that makes our world interesting. Why can’t the media reflect this. Rather than stereotypes, just acceptance of reality.

If you want to expand your mind on this, take a look at some of the inspirational stuff Rick Owens has done with his last Fashion Show,

Or have a read of Vestoj Magazine
