The end of fashion?

(Prada FW2010)

There’s no such thing as fashion nowadays. According to “Webster’s Universal Dictionary and Thesaurus”, the definition of fashion says that the fashion is “the current style of dress, conduct, speech, etc; the manner or form of appearance or action”. But what the current style of dress is? Is it the style that American “Vogue” shows us every month or what the French present twice a year during fashion weeks? Or what two girls in London put on going out Saturday night? Is everything in? If so, why can we still talk about any one certain fashion? The modern fashion seems to be disfashion, harmony of look and style seems to be disharmony. There are only fashions, one here, one there, changing faster than in the blink of an eye.

But thinking about fashion as a phenomenon, I come to the conclusion that the fashion itself still exists and only the definition is obsolete. The fashion now is one big fancy dress party. Our outfits are our costumes that we wear to show our personality, character and taste. The fashion is the area of life where visual arts, literature, music, theatre, cinema, culture, history and individialism influences each other, mix with each other and create a new quality.

The fashion today is all about creation. Not following any specific rules. And almost everything you wear deliberately and fully consciously is in. But almost makes a difference. This is how I see it.
