Over the decade, fashion has become much more than just clothing.
You may have seen pages of fashion magazines. Different models giving attractive poses, wearing top brand’s attires & accessories is something that you & me want.
This multi-trillion dollar industry which has stimulated fashion photographers to go out & hustle to capture timeless moments of their favourite & dazzling models.
Fashion is the essence, the fragrance of your personality, beliefs & designers are well aware of the power they hold.
Style is a symbol that runs together with many seasons which is often connected to cultural movements, symbols & class.It is a master’s trick to say what you are without having a word. And clothes mean nothing if you don’t live within it.This is why fashion indeed rules the world.
To keep up with the latest fashion, people subscribe to fashion magazines;go to a fashion show to see what designers are putting on the catwalk this season .
Celebrities across world have a personal relationship with designers who will keep them well ahead of the fashion trends.
Fashion include what you dress, how you dress & why you dress a particular attire. Now, when I’m spelling attire – it is your makeup, hairstyle, footwear and you believe it or not, the lifestyle also. Most of us take the fashion as a superficial thing.
But when you and me explore it, we find an anthropological standpoint of fashion. The anthropological standpoint elucidate the fashion of culture and human societies. In this section, we study fashion via asking – why a few styles are appreciated socially while others are not?
This is something that can be govern via your third eye. When something is my job/duty, I may get wrong, but if the same is my passion, I can’t, rather I don’t want to be wrong. If you really wanna aim it, you can do it.
There are some defined values given to the societies & if your styles are well aligned with the same, you’ll be nominated as the fashion icon. And, you may adapt new things, it’ll be declared as Parivartana or a new change.
Albeit the fashion industry prospered first in Europe and America, as in 2020, it is the international and highly globalized industry. e.g., an American fashion company may source fabrics in India, gets manufactured in Italy, finished in Switzerland and shipped to the USA for retailing internationally.
The fashion industry has mainly 4-layers :
- It is the bottom most layer of production of different kinds of fibres, textiles, leather etc.
- The 2nd stage where designers, makers & contractors step in.
- In 3rd phase, retailing of several kinds of newly designed fabrics takes place.
- At stage-4, advertising & promotion of the brand, designers, their newly designed fabrics are done. This is done by models, actors and actresses or the person who is a ‘public figure’ or social media influencers via fashion shows & marketing.
Change is the inevitable!
All these levels are inter-dependent & related. One enhances & elevates the other. Fashion changes rapidly with winds of time. As films are the mirrors of our society, the glamorous fashion industry decorates the same.
Don’t forget! The wheel of time is on the move. we are transforming along with today’s fashion .

Globally renowned fabric designers Calvin Klein (CK), Valentino Garavani, Coco Chanel are well aware of it.
