Even if you are not reading articles about fashion or watching fashion weeks on TV, fashion is still a big part of your life. How? Well, just because every day you are dressing up and wearing different clothes that represent you and what you like. There are loads of people who say that people who live for fashion and love it, are shallow and do not have real values. But it is not true. Fashion is so much more than just nice clothes and fancy accessories.
If you study history or know at least a little bit about it, you probably noticed how people in different eras wear different clothes. That is because throughout the history, fashion was used to represent that the current political and economic situation. Clothes were used to show protest or to show how things changed. For example, for a long time, women wore clothes that were very modest, skirts were long and only the bravest ones would wear pants. But, when women got a right to vote and were started to be seen as equal, they started wearing pants, shorts or short skirts. Even swimming suits have changed – before they were very conservative and did not show a lot of skin, but later they became more open and women started to even wear bikinis. Women even showed their freedom and wealth through accessories and clothes. For example, they would wear fancy hats with loads of details because these ones were very expensive and with them women could show their social status without even saying anything.
Fashion has a great history and while there are loads of manufacturers who produce clothes just to make money, there are artists and designers who work hard to show their creativity and to even represent the current situation in the world. With fashion you can say many different things without saying a word, and that it is why it is so amazing.
