One of the most attainable forms of expression is fashion. Fashion can express, as well as induce, emotion. Fashion is an outlet for creativity, a form of therapy, and a booming industry. Oddly it also at times is a cause of contempt. Fashion choices have made some objects of ridicule. I wholeheartedly believe in fashion freedom. Clearly everything is not for everybody. I say that from a stand point of “that’s for you and not for me” not from a standpoint of “that’s not for you.”
Yes, I offer fashion consultation when asked. I offer tips and guidelines. What I don’t do is tell people what they are not allowed to wear. I believe fashion should be freeing not restrictive. It should build confidence, not insecurities.
In addition to judgement of others when it comes to their individual style, I have noticed judgement surrounding what people choose to spend on fashion. As I said before, Fashion is art. It’s true value is in the eyes if the owner. I haven’t criticized anyone for the amount spent on paintings or sculptures and I certainly don’t plan on criticizing someone about what they spend on shoes or handbags. Frankly it is none of my business.
I view collections of clothing and accessories as art. I enjoy closets just as much as I enjoy museums. There is just so much to admire; craftsmanship, color, texture. I could go on and on. The gist is fashion is an art form that makes me happy to wear and to watch.
