Writing About Fashion

Fashion is the medium through which people express their identity and beliefs. It is a way of communication that is often used to create stereotypes and distance between groups, like in high school when people have their own ‘cliques’ (goths, skaters, preps, herbs) which they associate themselves with and dress to reflect.

The fashion industry is a massive one, and it involves many different aspects including the design, manufacture and retail of clothing and accessories. Designers show their latest collections during Fashion Week, which is attended by the fashion press and buyers from all over the world. It’s also important to remember that Fashion is a form of expression, and it’s easy to go overboard with it. Especially in today’s society where it’s common to see articles fat-shaming some celebrity for their choice of clothing, or talking about how the model’s skirt flew while she was walking down the runway and showed off her underwear.

Fashion isn’t just a superficial thing that we wear to look good, it has been a part of the human race since time immemorial. It helps us to distinguish ourselves from other animals, it can mark our social status and it even has political significance. That’s why it’s so important to be selective with what we wear, and it’s a good idea to spend some time researching the topic before you start writing about it. This way, you’ll be able to avoid writing superfluous articles and keep your integrity intact.
