“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they notice the woman.” quotes Chanel. Fashion has a very big dimension in the world of today, but till now no one can give justice to its definition. It’s mainly a self-reflection of the person, and the image that they want to create in the society. Fashion trend is defined as a particular style, or clothing at a particular period of time. The modern world is now a combination of different people all having their own extraordinary patterns and style. Thus, fashion is not mere about clothing or dressing up but bringing up the creator in you.
Fashion and youth go hand in hand, its this generation that brings out a new approach in this arena. Fashion not only means wearing clothes, but feeling comfortable, confident and beautiful with your skin. It adds a flash of colour to your emotions and transforms your life. The different colour you wear is also a reflection of your feelings. It is proven that Warm colours is associated with happy times and dull colour are worn when you feel low or unhappy. Coming from the traditional attire to the plain bland long clothes, to miniskirts, dresses and now baggy jeans, we can see the transition of fashion industry to extreme levels. The teenager nowadays is very active in social medias and technological development this also brings them into an exposure of the current trend, and being a fast-moving world, everything is at the tip of their fingers. Therefore, the youth today should never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day.
Everyday is a fashion show, and the world your runway, is a popular conception in the fashion industry, not only are two people distinct by their appearance but their taste and clothing differ too. Sometimes these are mainly a contribution of the place they live in or due to their beliefs and notion. In India, there are a mix of people but the most dominant in them are the Hindus, the Muslims and the Christians. Firstly, the Hindus follow several Holy God and their way of clothing is mainly normal traditional attire with a mix of their tribal dress and heavy makeup at the time of festival. The Muslims wear burkha normally or clothes that will cover their body because that’s what their religion had told them about. Finally, Christian is a migrant religion and western to Indian wear is seen by the people who follow this religion. It is seen that in Hinduism when there is a death in the family, they normally wear white, but in Christianity white is a symbol for holiness and they marry in white beautiful gowns. Red sari is normally worn by the Hindu brides in their marriage. The Muslims on the other hand wear the black burkha on a daily basis and have hijab for their own belief. Thus, fashion is not only to look pretty or attractive but has some deep roots in their values and rituals, because at the end, life cannot be perfect but your outfits can be.
Fashion is thus a stepping stone for self-love, its when you feel good that you start getting confidence and that’s the biggest magic that fashion does in your life. As Neiman Marcus rightly said, “If loving fashion is a crime, we plead guilty.”
