fashion is not a statement, it's a fad people blindly follow because they desperatly want to be "trendy" and "hip" so they can be part of the "group". it does not express one's personality, it expresses one's closed mind and hurding instinct.

Well put! Very well indeed. So: "Fashion is a trend"

Fashion is a consumer ideal that makes lots of money out of very stupid people who like to fit in with all their little friends.!

Wah Wah Wah......Daddy wouldn't buy me a Gucci dress that cost more than our house, what a cruel dejected life I lead!

Sad!

Personally I think there needs to be a uniform dressing system for everything. Some may say that they express themselves through clothing, but I say expressing yourself through hard work and intelligence is better.

The really expensive fashion used to be the preserve of the rich, while the lower classes got to wear trendy potato sacks. This is still the case, only now the potato sacks are multi-colored and have Nike logos etc on them. The ridiculously expensive stuff, that which some people might dub 'official fashion', is still the preserve of the rich.

It's not a personality symbol, it's a status symbol. Always has been, always will be. However, it's very good for the economy. I think it's a very clever system these 'popular' companies have got going for themselves, actually. If you can dictate what is cool, and what isn't, you can change it as often as you like and charge whatever you want for it. Music, clothes, even small cars now. I wish I'd have thought of it :uhm:.

that would be horrible! Id much rather go around with shorts that are two years old and shirts with holes in them (which I wear now) than have a dress code.

Meh, I think the goth kids that all dress up in that black clothes do the exact same thing that the preppy kids do when they dress up in really nice clothes. They are all copying off their other friends to look cooler in their eyes. I wear nice clothes, specifically from Abercrombie, American Eagly, some from Kohles, ect. To me clothes is clothes. I don't buy my clothes though because of other kids, I buy clothes that I myself like. Hey, if people got a problem with the clothes I wear, screw them. I got other things to worry about then what kids think of my clothes.

i dont "express myself" through cloth. i wear the clothes that fit and are comfortable. i usually have a theme though "summer sunset!" "murky clouds!" ..not really..well, i like to wear grays and blues, so thats what i wear. jeans/shorts and t-shirts for me.

i think only people without personalities try and "express themselves" through clothing.
