The word “fashion” comes from the Latin “modus” which means “way measure” and, apart from the sense that refers to the way of dressing, one of the definitions given by the dictionary Le Petit Robert “collective tastes, ways of living, feeling that appear fashionable at a given time in a given society”
France is the place where high fashion was born; as in Paris, one of the largest cities in the world, it has acquired, rightly, the title of fashion capital and is perhaps the most important.
Although people have been interested in clothing and fashion for thousands of years, the industry has begun to take shape to années1850. Before 1850, about 70% of the clothes were sewn by hand, even those wearing them.
Since their inception until now, the clothes have gradually changed their goals arriving today to exclusive concept of being fashionable.
Most often, the fashion is directed to people who need a strong personality to highlight the elegance. In a world where appearance is very important, you have to adapt and keep his personality, without departing from what we really are. This is the biggest fashion influence that someone would be proud to own.
Later, at the end of the twentieth century, clothing and purchase become collective passion even children learn the name of Gautier, Dior and Chanel. They also know the most important fashion houses like Lanvin, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Louis Vuitton Malletier, etc.
Fashion, style of dress, in all its aspects, is a non-verbal mode of expressing our feelings, our world view, as to make known indirectly our social position, our financial strength and our preferences. The mode means beauty, good taste, and means of communication, integration and group membership. Be fashionable suppose the help of several elements and factors that have the role to identify both advantages and disadvantages.
Among the advantages, we would rather stress a consequence someone who is fashion shows that he has enough money to be interested in the latest trends and to buy clothes that allow him to leave the ranks, to win in front of others. Indeed, there is a strong link between financial power, the opportunity to purchase the desired clothing and personal happiness, comfort and opportunities of a person who is much attached to fashion. These are the French ones that give attention to accessories signed by famous fashion designers, and of course, they happen in this stage when they have a good financial level, but also when they have more time to worry about that kind of things.
On the other hand, a person who is fashionable is an active person, attractive, informed, who knows the various circles and makes contact with many people. It must always keep pace with the latest trends. In this context, we understand fashion as a contributing factor and that helps a person to fit into a group or a team and identify with, without making a rule.
However, we consider that the arguments against fashion are more numerous. First, in order to be fashionable we must have money to buy clothes and anything derived from it. Not all of the necessary financial resources to afford such an investment that prove sometimes a luxury. From this point of view, purchase products that are fashionable, do not automatically mean that they are the most appropriate for each type of physique, personality, occasion.
If we talk about style, we think it is important to see how women differentiate between the different ways of dressing, depending on the situation. A plus for them is that they make a clear difference between the office clothes, street and used. At the office, they are quite discreet, they prefer luxury suits, sophisticated accessories, but without exaggeration. Regarding the outfits evening or those used, they prefer instead to invest in brands.
Therefore, avoid buying an item just because it is fashionable, without considering other aspects: we are okay.
On the other hand, there are people who want to keep pace with fashion to make up a few and obvious defects in respect of studies, the chosen career, social involvement. In this context, fashion plays a negative role, it deceives us, and it’s almost a vice, the same disease for people who see it as a way to escape the vicissitudes of life. Sometimes we feel inferior to others and this because of the stars that appear to be perfect and also because the models promoted by television and magazines are false.
We would like to emphasize that the expression be fashionable has several meanings: it’s not just clothing and ready to wear, shoes and accessories of all kinds that beautify our appearance, but also trends, manners, existing currents at some point in the context of a society, which are adopted by a lot of people just to be modern and attractive.
