“Taking Over The World With Fashion and Style.”

ASHION IS prevailing STYLE or custom, as in dress, or behavior. omething such as garment, that is in the current mode. ashion is not always expensive clothes. Fashion is not what all the popular girls at school are wearing. Fashion is creating a garment and being different. Fashion is developing a style. Fashion never gets old, it just gets recreated. There is no right or wrong in fashion. Fashion trends are started//developed by looking at another culture, or more ideas after you have developed a personal style. Fashion started with our earliest designers and followed with our more popular designers. Examples. Gabrielle Coco Chanel, Ives Saint Laurent, Gucci, Dolce, Fendi, Renne Lacoste, Hermes, Mui Mui, Karl Lagerfield, Christian Dior, Gorgio Armani, Donatella Versace, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Givenchy , Donna Karan, Anna Sui, Nicole Miller, Betsy Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and SO MANY MORE. Fashion isnt just whats in, its also whats out. Remember fashion is creat-

ing and re-creating, and its never the same. Without fashion pop-art, and pop-culture would be so much different. So dont think that fashion is just what all the cool kids wear, cause its not. Fashion never dies.

# BEFOREOURTIME 1970s

Jogging suits, sneakers, message tees, and hot pants -- need I say more? The disco era’s “fine specimen” was a

guy dressed in a tight pair of polyester bell-bottoms, a bright floral body shirt with a wide butterfly collar, and six-inch platform shoes (I think my stomach just turned). Nylon, acrylic, and of course, polyester were the fabrics of this decade, and unisex clothes were totally cool. Guys wearing girlie duds and chicks done up in men’s suits -- no wonder drug use was so high in the ‘70s!

1980s

Designers Anne Klein, Vivian Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and John Galliano were busy turning out

the latest power suits for the evolving conservative preppies of that generation. Guys were wearing their hair long and layered, teased, or in a Mohawk-do. Leather and studded jean jackets were “rad,” as was the Miami Vice look: pastel T-shirts under dinner jackets (some of you out there are still wearing this -- check the time period please) and loafers with no socks.

1990s

Fashion was influenced by retro. Vintage second-hand clothes shopping was the trendiest way to create a unique

look all your own. Gothic and cyber punk styles appeared, as well as hemp clothing. Men were no longer adhering to one specific fashion, rather to whichever they preferred. Suits were now available in a wide range of cuts, colors and patterns. Accessories for guys were also premiering on shelves in men’s clothing stores everywhere.

FASHION POEMS #1. The fashionable body is due for a change and over the years has encountered a range of shapes and sizes dictated by trends because the quest for vogue never ends! ******** #2. state

When consuming the persona of an existing the chameleon tread lightly in order to equate the delicate balance and approximation of fame but even a moth gets burnt by the flame! *********

#3.

With a riot of colors she was born to wear the fashion cognoscenti all stop and stare at those long skinny legs and the prominent beak of a strutting peacock at her artistic peak ! ***********

#4. Wrapped in its beauty with a ribbon and a bow deception is the veneer of what you don't know denied

and unless your imagination is completely it's a package so pretty but empty inside! *********

FASHION QUOTES "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

— Audrey Hepburn "Fashions fade, style is eternal."

— Yves Saint-Laurent "I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it."

— Alexander McQueen "The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world."

— Alicia Keys

#5. No style or variation in the way we dress. Fashion has lost its unbounded excess and in the sea of bodies not one surprise if everyone was born to wear the same size! **********
