“Fashion is art and you are the canvas”.
Fashion defines who you are! Over the years, fashion has evolved and has curbed its own space in the world. Be it men or women, everyone wants to be in vogue. However, sometimes we may pick up something that is unconventional. The edge to which one can adapt to unconventional fashion also depends on his/her character. Example, the well-known Lady Gaga, the American singer sets her own fashion statement and people follow her though it seems a little eccentric. Others say doesn’t matter as nobody has the right to judge what another man adores and abhors. At the same time, tattooing one’s eyes, t-shirts printed with un-parliamentary slogans or wearing dead-animal-look-alike scarfs can be stated as an eerie look.
Fashion is all about portraying who you are and what your inner self echoes and it is those that give you your identity and keep you in your comfort zone. It is unique to each part of the world and in a way the choice of dressing relates to your culture. Some breaks the traditional barrier and takes one’s idea of fashion to a different level which may not be digestible to the rest of the society they live in. However continue following your heart, heed not to what others may think or say because at the end of the day, you are who you wish to be.
