If you are fond of fashion, you will understand why the world celebrates Fashion Week as if Christmas. You’ll understand why they stumble with their feet trying to get a spot in the front row, and look at the super-models walking the runway in the collections of recent seasons from several world-renowned fashion designers. Fashion trends are something that fashionistas cannot live without. This is their lifeline for being stylish, cool, fresh and fierce.
Fashion tells a lot about a person, how he dresses, how he dresses an outfit, shows what kind of person he is every day. Even people who say they don’t care about how they look still tell a story about who they really are and what they aspire to be. You can’t say they don’t care about fashion, but don’t look a certain way, whether it’s to their detriment or to their success.
Fashion is not just clothing that protects us from the elements. Fashion trends tell us what to wear when we lie in landfills and when high in the clouds. Fashion trends inspire chemistry and can be the beginning of a very beautiful love affair as well as its completion.
If the only constant thing in the world is change, then it is definitely manifested in the fashion world, where change happens as fast as the blink of an eye. Keeping up with fashion trends can be quite challenging and confusing, but following them is something that people do and do well in most cases. An example is the alleged icons of fashion, which on any day of the week or at any time of day are able to dress outfits from the most casual to the most glamorous. They may have a bad day, but you wouldn’t recognize their perfectly composed outfits and the smiles they flicker in the paparazzi. Paris Hilton could just break up with her last boyfriend in the morning, wearing designer jeans and a top, and partying that night in a silver dress.
But who exactly is starting these fashion trends and why are people following them? Musicians such as rock stars, athletes, actors and actresses and even politicians have earned the start of fashion trends. If one of the influential people has decided that he wants to tell the world that being an emo is cool, expect the rest of the world to accept the emo trend and see the world with one eye. People follow fashion trends – this is what classifies us as individuals or groups, what sets us apart or what defines us in the rest of society. Fashion trends are trendy, making us look like the rest of the world.
Another reason why people follow fashion trends is that they want to take part in an endless popularity contest. Trends in haute couture or “haute couture” are always carefully studied, and if they want, you can be sure to see it everywhere – on the runways, on TV shows, at the movies and even at a neighbor next door. Trends may have price tags that can feed the entire third world country, but people are still going ahead and watching. It all comes down to the fact that we all want to be loved and loved, and that’s one surefire way to have just that.
