Why I love fashion
Fashion is, besides being an extension of personality, or a mood, or a way of expressing inner creativity, is also a kind of mask. I love the transformative quality, the effect that an item of clothing can have on the way people see you and the way you might see yourself. There's something about the right pair of pants or a fabulous pair of shoes that can bring out a confidence in you that you didn't realize you had. Despite how much fashion seems to deal with the surface, it's the effect it has on the way you feel as opposed to the way you look that makes it so amazing...to me at least.
There's more to it, I'm sure, but I don't think I've ever stopped to think about why I love fashion. Knowing that I do is enough.
