So coming off of Phoenix Fashion Week where I was immersed in Fashion for 4 days and working with an awesome team of models, designers, stylists and photographers – it got me thinking a lot about Fashion & Trends. It was truly an experience working with so many amazing and talented people. Every stylist and designer had a niche that they believed in and wanted the message to shine through with the show that they were going to present. It was the job of every model to make sure they showcased the energy that was required by the designer. The stunning designs ranged from “Oh I can wear that” to “Wow..can I wear that?” to “Where would I wear that?”. So another day or another magazine or fashion show later…you wonder how you can keep up with all the fashion trends around you.
We all want to be cool and hip and keeping up with those people next door (Jones’s is it?) is not an easy task. But then you stop and ask yourself…do I want to even keep with the Jones’s?…or maybe …just maybe they are too busy trying to keep up with us.Hmm..Now that’s a thought! (BTW how did the Jones ever become the people to compete with..:) ..Anyone know? )
Are men as driven by fashion as women are? Do they put as much thought in to what they wear as the women do? Do they even care? I had a discussion with a group of friends(all girls) one day about why so many girls put so much thought into fashion(bags/dresses/shoes/make-up/hair).
There were two thoughts..well actually three. The first thought was that women dress well to show off to other women, the other was that women dress up to look good for people in general, and the last thought was that they do it for themselves as it makes them feel good. I personally go with the last thought. What do you think?
I believe that if you go with the TRUE you…you can be who you are. That applies not only to fashion but to every aspect of your life. Blend styles and go with what you think works well for you and who you are. Forget matching and try mixing up your own style..use unexpected color combos and new ideas to make a style of your own and add a dose of new. Who knows – you may just have started a new trend.:) You may just be the new fashionista in town. I had once heard an interview by the famous Indian designer – Sabyasachi and he had said…”Anyone can rock a chanel or a Louis Vuitton but it takes class and style to be able to rock a no-name brand”
Be true, Be pure but most importantly be Yourself….It’s YOU who puts the soul in your tread..oops I mean Trend 🙂 So do you consider yourself Trendy?
Thx for reading and would love to hear your thoughts/comments.
p.s: (I just have to add that I have a whole new respect for the models/stylists/photographers in the fashion industry with the amount of hours they put in and all with a smile on their face)..They truly rock!
