Fashion is, always has been, and always will be “the mirror of our time”. It is a reflection of cultural episodes and of course an unavoidable social phenomenon. It is very often used in symbolic communication; fashion is a way of identification and socialization, an obligation of prestige and of course it is an applied art.
In human nature there is a need for being different, and therefore style is identity, because authentic style shows diversity, determines individuality, uniqueness and unusualness of its structure and it is a reflection of taste. Style is created within a person and fashion is created as a result of already existing styles. So, fashion leads an individual on the path that everyone goes on because people strive for grouping, while style is the need to differentiate. The outfit speaks while you are silent, you do not fit in with the style, but stand out, and it is hidden in the details.
You have all already heard that the first impression is the most important one and that it takes a few seconds to leave it on all the people we meet throughout our life. The first impression is formed on the basis of what we see, on the basis of a visual impression that has become more important in the 21st century than it has ever been. Visual identity is what allows you to communicate with the environment without conversation, so it is nothing new that the choice of our clothes says a lot about us. By choosing a style, people reveal (and sometimes hide) their status, affiliation, position in society, beliefs and attitudes. By choosing certain colors, pieces, materials and cuts, as well as by combining them together, everyone tries to give each clothing combination a personal touch. Because people remember everything that is authentic, and when you have a good style you will be noticed very quickly. Humans are visual creatures and when they judge the environment, others will first interpret what they see. We are aesthetes, we like to see something beautiful, something that will leave a strong impression on us. Although most people’s bodies are not in ideal proportions like Michelangelo’s David for example, they can look more enchanting with the right clothes on.
The great thing about fashion is that it can help you express yourself and it doesn’t discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, intelligence, profession… Fashion is a field of art in which everyone can participate. Fashion is one of the rare opportunities for everyone to express their creativity, use their imagination and use their body as a canvas that can show a different picture every day. Fashion designer Alexander Mc Queen said: “This is a new era of fashion – there are no rules. Individuality and personal style are important. ” Although it is known that fashion is not necessary and is not a priority for many, imagine a world where everyone wears the same hairstyle, the same wardrobe and the same shoes. How much gloomier everyday life would be, how much people, streets and photos would seem boring and monotonous. All that fashion should represent is choice and a source of satisfaction, innovation and changeability. Fashion may be unimportant to someone but it is incorrect to say that it has no meaning, value or purpose. It is both an occupation and a form of expressing yourself, but above all it is freedom of choice, and it is up to us whether we will follow what is modern in the new season, imitate styles that were once modern or choose to ignore it.
