Friends, I will speak a few words on the topic of
relevance in today's world, FASHION.
Fashion is the style of wearing clothes and ornaments.
Fashion is the art of designing and wearing simple, elegant, differently
styled, and appealing fancy robes. A fashion establishes a trend among
people following it. Fashion designers create new types of clothes using
new technology, fabric, stitching methods, specific to the height, weight,
size, and complexion of the people porting the robes. Fashion is used
often to indicate richness and stylishness.
Why do people go after
fashion ? Coco channel gives an answer.
“Dress shabbily and they remember the
dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”
― Coco Chanel (manufacturer of perfumes and accessories)
I will say that it is to create a unique identity for oneself and to set a trend for their fans and followers.
Fashion is going great guns in India. For a common man it means
nothing. Rich people want to impress their followers by chasing new
fashions, even if they are crazy. Fashion designers design inner clothes,
clothes worn on top, shoes, chappals, night wear, casual wear, winter wear,
marriage wear, party-wear, caps, wrist bands, watches, perfumes, necklaces and
ornaments. All these should together be matching, harmonious and suit the
occasion for which they are meant, to be appreciated and sold. Often fashion design relates to the interiors of the place and the weather too.
There is a separate TV channel for the fashion. Paris has
been the center of fashion and perfumes. Often we read about fashion
shows held in various cities. IIFD (Indian Institute of Fashion Design)
in Hyderabad gives degrees in fashion design. It is a lucrative career for the
youth today. There are many costly magazines on fashion.
To be a fashion designer, one needs to be creative, consistent,
quick, knowing the client mentality, and likes and dislikes.
Often young boys and girls try to buy clothes, accessories and
ornaments similar to movie stars. Many women in middle ages try to buy clothing
similar to those worn by actors or celebrities on TV. It is not correct to be overwhelmed by fashions. It should be
based on the need and occasion.
Some times Fashion shows are conducted to donate the proceedings for
charity or for people who suffered calamities like cyclones.
Well, whether fashion and trendz are good or bad, they are
among us now. It is for us to decide whether fashion makes us better or
worse. Whether it goes against our culture, or with the culture.
For some celebrities, “Style is a way to say who you
are without having to speak.” — Rachel Zoe.
For some “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of
everyday life.” — Bill Cunningham.
Whatever the fashion is, beauty that comes with simplicity and innocence
is unbeatable. So fashion should not complicate the appearance of the person,
but should only enhance it.
I thank you all for listening to me silently and attentively.
