Few weeks ago I got a new skirt. While trying it, I kept two eyes, one on the skirt and the other on the hemline.
And like the Parisienne in me, I already knew what I must think.
The hemline. I was wondering about the hemline.
Change breeds fashion. Back in the fifties, Christian Dior illustrated the new hemline in his 1953 collection. Throughout history, fashion has always have something to give us. And introducing the new hemline, fashion gave women the freedom of movement.
It isn’t about the piece itself (whether a skirt, a dress, or whatever). It is always about keeping up with a cultural climate. I have come up to understand that fashion senses the culture and ends up being a piece of clothing that demonstrates a certain movement.
I would like to further elaborate on something I have read earlier. “Fashion and clothing may appear to be the same thing, but they are far from it.”
So what is fashion? What is clothing?
Fashion is the barometer of culture and society. Clothing is the outcome.
Fashion is a thumbprint we leave behind. Clothing is a wow or die moment.
Fashion is to be and reflect. Clothing is to mix and match.
Clothing looks. Fashion foresees.
Clothing is in the eye. Fashion is a sixth sense.
Fashion is focused. Deeply rooted.
Clothing; however, goes with the flow.
And while fashion walks down the streets of Paris, clothing ends up in Ibiza.
While fashion writes the script, clothing makes an entrance.
