WE LIVE NOT ACCORDING TO REASON, BUT ACCORDING TO FASHION
I think this quote, however ancient, sums up this era's (and the preceeding and the forthcoming...) preoccupation with image, status and material wealth. However negative these three sentiments are portrayed by popular opinion, it cannot be denied that "fashion" has a phenomenal impact upon society. Whether it is through "keeping up with the Jones" or a front row seat at Paris couture week, fashion is a medium that describes an ever increasing number of forms; it is ostensible that one of the human races' most basic instincts is the following and emulating of others.
This blog hopes and endeavours, through an overwhelming passion, curiosity and love of fashion, to explore and develop a more thorough knowledge of what is no longer considered a subject, but a way of life.
