The Truth About Fashion
July 1, 2012
Fashion is something that is always changing. Fitting in and being up to date with “cool” trends is always desired. Let’s face it, no one likes being the person out of the loop and not being included. Whenever there is a new pair of shoes or a new popular brand with a line if new releases, people line up with wallets in hand. They are ready to spend crazy amounts of money to get the popular, new, trendy clothes.
I get it, in the judge a book by its cover world that we live in now, people want to look there best. Tell me though, why do people buy these hundred-dollar branded pieces of apparel? What is the difference between buying a fancy new Coach bag and taking a bag and writing a C on it? To me there is no difference. People judge others on the brands they wear and its pretty sad. There is a reason why the most missed day of school for younger kids is the first day. The reason is because all of the kids come to school with their new shoes and backpacks trying to show off. Kids judge others who don’t have the nice clothes like they do and the fashion industry deserves a good deal of the blame. I think that people need to stop buying these brand-name products and stop pouring money in these industries to keep them going.
“We all self-conscious, I’m just the first to admit it.”
This is a line in the Kanye West song, All Falls Down. Honestly, he could not be any more correct. Face it, when you go to the store, instead of buying the cheaper shirt or pair of jeans, you go straight for the fancy designer clothes. It’s not a bad thing to admit to it, there are millions of people who do the same the same thing.
Fashion is always changing and I think its time that it changes again. Stop with the over priced Juicy Couture bags, shoes, etc. Make a brand that is cheap and affordable. Lose the models and the attention that you try to achieve with your products. If these companies lowered their prices and made their products accessible and easier to buy, they make more money and would be saving so much discrimination and self-consciousness in the world as well, without even knowing it. I say we all make a change for that.
