The reasons why everyone loves fashion

Fashion

There are many reasons to love fashion, some people like it because they want to be informed about the latest style and others just to watch good looking fashion models wearing beautiful apparels and accessories. No matter the reason one has to admit that fashion shows are beautiful spectacle to watch.

It is also true that everybody wants to be well-dressed and hang out with well-groomed friends. Perhaps we ca not all be as much good looking as those models but who cares, we may love Formula 1 but we continue to drive common cars ;).

Within fashion we can have different preferences from each other. Some ladies enjoy haute couture the most, others rather watch ready-to-wear shows and see what they will be wearing next season.

Fashion accessories are also becoming more usual part of every fashion show and many people loves to see their new tendency.

It is also well known that most men prefer to watch swimwear or lingerie for the simple reason that those are the kind of clothes they most likely will offer to their girlfriend/wife :D.

Haute Couture shows

Every time we think about haute couture we tend to remember French designers not because they are the only ones but because they were the firsts.

Well, in fact it was started by an English man who worked in Paris, France, during the mid nineteenth century. He use to made exclusive custom-made clothes for high-class and rich people.

Nowadays haute couture it is spread all over the world and it can be seen as the top of the fashion industry.

Ready-to-Wear shows

Those are the kind of fashion show that attract more public.

Ready-to-wear fashion shows give people a more accurate view on the real tendencies for the next season. These are the clothes we all can buy on every fashion boutique and they are adequate to everyday use, well at least they say so.

Fashion Accessories

Every time we watch some fashion show accessories are always present. Sometimes models carry jewelry others use hats, shoes and hair accessories are also present in fashion shows very often.

It is true that accessories do not get as much attention as clothes and models but they give that extra glamor touch to every fashion show.

I had been considering what to get my wife for Mother's Day. And then I saw those shoes with the yellow heels. And I asked myself, "Are you ready to end it all?"

So I decided on Flowers. Interesting ... but I have never thought the majority of women dress anything like the models.

LOL, you would be surprised with your wife response. Who knows, maybe she like them and you´ll never know :P

I guess not even models dress like when they are modeling :D but if we look at ready-to-wear collections we find normal everyday clothes.

Very well created hub, Funride! Fashion is the substantial part of modern life and a huge industry. Almost every one has its own favorite brand name. By the way, which is your favorite designer name my hub-buddy?

funride -

This is a fun hub. High fashion in my opinion is simply sensationalism and basically unrealistic for the majority of consumers, but we love to see what will come out on the catwalk nonetheless.

I am always interested in seeing how the fashion industry will season after season manipulate consumers, as they tell us - what is fashion "now".

I have come to respect those designers who give credit to consumers and not go the sensational route, but truly design for real men and women.

I imagine this kind of integrity as a designer is a big decision to make, considering the competitive nature of such sensationalism.

Because fun, gets noticed over practical most of the time...

Lets get real, Oprah Winfrey is the true fashion decider for what most women wear, carry, sleep in, etc... and call their FAVORITE THINGS these days! My gosh, look no further cuz she even has a list for us! LOL

Fashion shows are pure spectacle, if one remembers that then we don't have to worry. I would love to go to a fashion show in Paris or Milan. It must be like going ot a really good drag show, I'm srry but that's what they remind me of.

Hello Owen, no need to be sorry :P I also agree about the spectacle thing but I haven´t understand what you meant with "good drag show" :/
