The speed of how the fashion industry is forever changing does not bode well for many, especially the consumers. Why is this so, unless you are definite about what you’re purchasing, it can be quite confusing. When those of us who are in the business and love the fashion business as we do, we wonder what’s next. What must it be like for the novice? It is like being on a treadmill. What that makes happens is that far too many have clothes packed and yet never the right outfit to wear. It is also the reason for so many fashion designers saying goodbye to it all and the demise of high -couture.
Fashion has to be fun, yet it must be tuned in to the people who are the buyers for the new as it arrives each season. The strain on designers is never-ending most are creating from four to eight shows a year. That’s a lot and can be quite confusing and perplexing for you, the consumer. If ever there was a time for developing your signature style and stamping that look to you, it is now. Your love for fashion should not put you in a frenzy. How can you end the endless rush for the always new? You do it by knowing for sure your fashion style and what fits your body shape best, that’s your beginning.
It would be safe to say that fashion has gone mad; the speed of creating and churning out forever new has reached its limits. Another fact my friend is that the onslaught of online shopping has fed the craze for speed and action. Buy it now, offering you so many incentives. You can’t truly experience the fabric or try it on yet the emotion and the excitement of purchasing because you love the look of it, and you get it first is enticing. You add to that how the marketing is so smart the way they whip you into the excitement of it. Offering you the so called-limited editions and so many other incentives. You before you realize it is caught up in the maze of wonder and the thrill of getting your new purchased asap
In today’s world, fashion seems not to have to make sense or have logic as a part of it. Who said it has to anyway? Well, style and philosophy can be a good fit only when you know your fashion personality. You must add to that your body shape as a beginning. When these are in place, all the other factors will follow as they should for the signature style that leaves a memorable impression for you wherever you go. We will always have the never-ending stream of newness and a great deal of the crash and burn in fashion. Your assignment is not to fall into that pit of speed taking action that does not benefit you and your fashion image.
Until the next time my friend, take good care and be well.
