Although we are all destined to live on this planet, how we live does make a difference. We prefer to look the best and dress according to fashion. The purpose of life gets enhanced by fashion, and it updates us about current trends. Before getting to know a person, the first impression we notice is how they dress and look. Therefore, it can be stated that fashion is a silent language.
“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of life”– Bill Cunningham
Meaning of Fashion
Our level of life is raised and improved through fashion. The way we act, the technology we use, and everything else we pick are all based on current trends.
Have you ever considered where we spend the majority of our earnings? Most of our income is spent on fashion-related expenses such as shopping, branded things, and eating out. The majority of us are not going to think of dining outdoors as a part of fashion, but it is. Starting from scratch, up until it gets served to customers, the entire process of the food-making and dining experience is an art. When it comes to outdoor dining, the expansion of food trucks along the roadways is a reflection of the growing trend of eating from mobile kitchens.
Fashion goes hand in hand with the food industry when the customers bring value to it. A great example would be, having fun in the great outdoors and uploading images, and videos on social media. This builds social media trends and marketing standards to promote businesses and much more.
The need to keep up with the latest styles and trends in fashion is what usually drives many of us to work harder and earn more money. Fashion allows us to conceal our physical defects and seem more appealing, boosting our self-actualization and confidence.
Additionally, we can argue that fashion plays a significant part in the generation gap. If we were to look at old photographs of our parents and grandparents, we would notice that they all used to dress differently. They had various hairstyles and chose different colors and shoes. All these are according to the trends and social acceptances of the time.
“Fashion is about something that comes from within you”– Ralph Lauren
We should acknowledge that fashion is a significant aspect of life that cannot be ignored. It is something that connects you to society is fashion. For instance, the once-famous tech giant Nokia collapsed because it failed to innovate in line with the trend, although its competitors did with rapid adaptability. In the information and technology field, Apple company made sure to set technological trends and standards. It resulted in them having the highest long-term customer base in the market. The Apple company became globally famous because of their insightfulness and detail in their product with impeccable customer satisfaction.
Fashion nowadays plays a significant role in people’s lives. It now serves as a means of expression. It never fails to draw attention and is accessible to everyone, regardless of age. Do not slow down no matter how old you are; instead, enjoy every moment to the utmost.
