What is fashion? Fashion refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style with which a person dresses, as well as to prevailing styles in behaviour. Fashion also refers to the newest creations of textile designers.The more technical term, costume, has become so linked to the term “fashion” that the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while “fashion” means clothing more generally and the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous.
There is nothing more sophisticated than a well-dressed human being.
Anna Dello Russo
‘I forced myself to gain confidence with blogging because I wanted to show the “behind-the-scenes” fashion world. For me, blogging is about getting in touch with a new generation, with an audience younger than me. I keep my blog almost like a teenage diary, but the concept is deeper. When I am working with an assistant I always tell them beauty is all around in life, but it is about how you edit it.’
Everybody knows about Paris or Milan; to me, posting an inspiring picture from Santiago or Helsinki has much more value.’ facehunter.blogspot.co.uk
‘My blog started as a simple “Would this repel men or not?” Now it’s more about questioning whether or not what I’m featuring is aesthetically pleasing and wearable art. Initially, I wasn’t the man-repeller; I was just making the observations. Over time I started putting images of myself on the site, created a persona. It has expanded from just women’s fashion being repulsive to men to women consciously dressing for themselves and almost hoping that they will in fact achieve man-repeller status.’ manrepeller.com
