All About Fashion
Fashion is a field of dressing and self-expression in a particular time and context and at a particular point of time, of garments, footwear, accessories, hairstyling, makeup, fashion trends, and even body postures. The word ‘fashion’ actually means a style defined by the fashion market as what is trendy. There are many definitions formulated by fashion experts as to what the definition of fashion actually is. One such definition is that ‘fashions are the ways of dressing clothes and accessories according to current trends in the popular fashion industries’. There are also many who define fashion in terms of what is considered to be the definitive style, meaning there is no agreed or clear cut definition to what fashion actually is.
It is for this reason that, when it comes to choosing and wearing clothes, individuals have a lot of flexibility as they can pick and choose from the wide range of fashion theories which exist in the market. The fashion industry on the other hand defines styles in terms of particular fabrics, colors, design patterns, and trends that change over a period of time and this can be clearly seen in seasons which are known as fashion seasons. Fashion also involves designing and creating accessories which can be worn on their own or combined with other accessories depending on the type of the accessory. There are fashion trends, which are common across various cultures and communities including Western communities.
Fashionable clothes can be categorized into a variety of things including tops, bottoms, outerwear, boots, jackets, sweaters, scarves, hats, belts, sunglasses, hair accessories, body ware and underwear. The main objective to create a piece of fashionable clothing is that it is both functional and attractive to the viewer. It is not only the clothes that need to be in fashion but accessories as well so that the overall appearance of the person can be accentuated. This has made it very difficult for people to know what is fashionable and what is not since there is no clear cut definition when it comes to fashion. In terms of marketing, clothing which has the capability to attract attention is one that is given more importance since a person’s wardrobe plays an important role in attracting prospective clients and customers.
