Fashion is a way of expressing one’s personality through their clothes, hairstyles and accessories. It is a very popular way of self-expression and is used by many people across the world to communicate their personalities.
The History of Fashion
The origins of the concept of fashion can be traced back to late medieval times and early Renaissance periods, but has evolved into a global phenomenon with an impact on every aspect of society. Throughout history, changing styles have shown the social, political and economic changes that took place during that time period.
During recent years, fashion has also become a powerful tool for political activism and is often leveraged by designers to reach a large audience. For example, during 2017 fashion weeks in London, Milan and Paris, designers often take a political stance to highlight a particular issue. However, this has raised controversy as it is often a one-way broadcast of top-down messages and may lead to a lack of inclusiveness in the design process.
