why fashion is important
Fashion is important to me because i can show and express myself through what i wear. I love to be unique and different and not like everyone else. So i find items which are quite unique and something a boy usually wouldn't wear as I like to stand out from the crowd and show my sense of style. Most of my clothing is women as I find I can achieve different and more stylish looks with women clothing. There is more selection and variety in my opinion. I shop in many different places like Missguided, Jakke, MDV, Calvin Klein. I like to wear hughstreet with designer staples. I try to find high street clothing that looks expensive and is good quality and pair it with a fur coat, monocular jacket, tailored blazer so it gives off an expensive look.Â
My colour palette is usually blacks, greys and whites. But when I am feeling extra I will occasionally wear my red fur, usually something quite statement as coloured. I love fur and think it makes any coat look expensive so when i bought a long grey coat from misguided i attached some real silver fox fur onto it and it makes it not look misguided anymore. So customising and altering clothing is something i love to do. I also did this with a blazer by changing the buttons to bug silver ones instead of the cheap plastic ones and it changes the whole look of it. I really love to stand out with my style and Â look different.Â Â
IN FASHION ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND I THINK ESSENTIAL ITEMS IS JEWLLERY. I THINK IT CAN TAKE A PLAIN OUTFIT FROM 0-100. HAVING GOOD QUALITY, CLASSIC JEWLLERY IS ALSO AN INVESTMENT AND CAN MAKE YOU MONEY IN THE FUTURE.
BUYING INTO WELL KNOWN CLASSIC JEWLERY BRANDS LIKE CARTIER, TIFFANY, HERMES. FOR EXAMPLE THE CARTIER LOVE COLLECTION GOES UP IN PRICE EVERY YEAR. so investing in it can in the long run give you a profit. classic items hold their value and they are staple pieces in my collection.
SEOUL STREET FASHION
I love seoul street style! I think it is so unique and different. No one follows a crowd everyone has their own individual style. i LOVE HOW THEY EXPERIMENT WITH COLOUR AND DIFFERENT TEXTURES. THEIR STYLE LOOKS VERY EFFORTLESS AND SLEEK. CURRENT TRENDS ARE ALWAYS ON POINT. i think this style to my style as i like to be different and not basic like everyone else. They shop at more niche different stores.

carnaby street Carnaby street i nthe 1960's was known for its bright bold colours, new cultures and new music. There were lots of different people walking around, almost an outlet for people to dress differently. Back then there was no where like it and it was a very cool trendy place. it was a place for people to express themselves and the home of punks, skin heads and glam rocks. It was a very diverse place.
now Carnaby street is a popular tourist attraction with its many shops and cafe's. It is known for its edgy street style and niche brands. it is a lot modern now and has decoarations usually going up the street above you depending on the time of year. there is also buskers that perform and play music there. it's located in an easily accessible place. it is still similiar to the 60's as it draws in a young crowd who love to express their style.
changes in retail
A very obvious and common thing that has changed and developed in fashion retail is the technology aspect. Like Selfridges has evolved and developed in a good way through the increased technology we have access too. Missguided has evolved in a big way as it started off as a basic website, simple and easy to navigate.Like Selfridges was a simple nice store to walk around when it first opened. And as technology and equipment advances the small cool details add up and make everything a lot more fancy and technical. Like missguided now have animation, themed pictures all in amazing quality. It as also developed into an actual store. The store has big structures and over the top displays, in the stratford store there was a big motorbike in store.
IN 1900S retail was very basic, no internet no cars. There was a lack of information when buying as there was no access to any. shopping was also not as popular as it is now because there wasn't cars so less people could travel to go shopping. Also as a time of no research opinions and word of mouth was a big deal and had more impact. shopping carts came in 1937 so they could hold more things. bricks and mortar stores did become less popular as online shopping is now a huge thing.

CARTIER PORSCHE LEATHER TROUSERS
alec monopoly He is known for adding his stamp on extremely expensive accessories such as the hermes birkin. You would think painting on something worth thousands would de value it but in fact his exclusive designs add value. I think Dapper Dan and Alec Monopoly are very a like in the fact they both customised expensive things and have the same work ethic and concept. I think alec monopoly is the Dapper Dan of the 21st century. Alec Andon, known professionally as Alec Monopoly, is a graffiti artist, originally from New York City. The artist has worked in the urban environments of New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Europe, Mexico and throughout Asia using varied materials (including stencils, spray paint, epoxies, varnishes and newspapers) He also is a brand ambassador with Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer and created a mural live, on red carpet for the 2013 film, Justin Bieber's Believe. Monopoly's work has been purchased by many famous people including Khloe Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Snoop Dogg, and Iggy Azalea.
The hermes birkin is like the nobu of restaurants. They are extremely iconic and exclusive bags. Some reason these bags are a big interest of mine. They are very hard to get in store, its known that you have to have a realtionshi and buying history with hermes before you are allowed to buy a bag from the store. They are one of the biggest status symbols in fashion and are also one of the most expensive bags. They come in different leathers and animal skins. They also come in lizard and crocodile. They are seen on many celebrities and kylie / kris jenner are known for their ridiculously over the top bag closest.
