Fashion is something we deal with everyday. Even people who say they don't care what they wear choose clothes every morning that say a lot about them and how they feel that day. One certain thing in the fashion world is change. We are constantly being bombarded with new fashion ideas from music, videos, books, and television. Movies also have a big impact on what people wear. Ray-Ban sold more sunglasses after the movie Men In Black. Sometimes a trend is world-wide. Back in the 1950s, teenagers everywhere dressed like Elvis Presley. The fashion industry is a product of the modern age. Prior to the mid-19th century, most clothing was custom made. It was handmade for individuals, either as home production or on order from dressmakers and tailors. By the beginning of the 20th century—with the rise of new technologies such as the sewing machine, the rise of global capitalism and the development of the factory system of production, and the proliferation of retail outlets such as department stores—clothing had increasingly come to be mass-produced in standard sizes and sold at fixed prices. Although the fashion industry developed first in Europe and America, today it is an international and highly globalized industry, with clothing often designed in one country, manufactured in another, and sold world-wide. For example, an American fashion company might source fabric in China and have the clothes manufactured in Vietnam, finished in Italy, and shipped to a warehouse in the United States for distribution to retail outlets internationally. During the mid-1800's, a mass production of clothing was made fashionable and available to more people for lower prices. This encouraged more people to wear more stylish clothes which is why we are wearing what we are today.Clothing is made out of all types of matieral such as cotton, rayon, spandex, and polyester,and they are just a few used. Some clothing may even be made of 2 or more different types, this is known as " Blending."Clothing can be decorated or designed with all types of images and colors. The designs can either be embroidered onto the fabric, woven on to the fabric, silk screened, or ironed onto the fabric to create a desired look. Some images that have been used to enhance an article of clothing range from a simple design on front of a T shirt to a famous printing that has been woven into fabric creating a colorful piece of art that one can wear.

Fahion is a misspelling of fashion.
(this hidden signature can only be seen by myself)

Fashion is telling everyone that you got money~ that you can buy branded stuffs...
And letting everyone know that you are stupid~ that you can get same quality stuffs without paying for the brand~

Fashion is conformist. It is also a huge con. I have lived enough years to see that shoe and clothes designs from the 1970s are being re-fashioned for the catwalks of today. I have never, in my entire life, bought "fashionable" clothes. I wear what I want to wear and it has raised some eyebrows here on the campus of the school where I live! Whilst the women here are tottering about uncomfortably on ridiculous heels I am sauntering about comfortably in moccasins. It won't be long before they are asking me where I get my clothes....they will be out of luck: op shops back in Australia and NZ!
