How many of you care to wear expensive designer clothes?
I do... I don't like wearing cheaply made clothes that fall apart after a few washes. It's not a fashion statement for me, it's a statement about quality.
For a short period of time, and when I had more money, I wore some designer clothes. Mainly because I found a boutique nearby and liked what the buyers put in their little store. I found clothes that I could wear to work any time, but yet could dress up to wear out in the evening -- pretty unusual for a boutique, at least in these parts.
There used to be some ladies around here who would buy designer samples from the Apparel Mart in Dallas to sell at greatly discounted prices, about four times a year, and that's my other exposure to designer clothing. These women rented a storefront, and sold the clothes for 3-4 weeks, then closed up shop. I love samples, and hence, would love to find another place that sells them.
I wear them because they look better and the quality of them is much greater than lower level brands. They do not fall apart and last for years.
I don't purchase stuff that's too expensive (I buy most of my jeans from Kohls, and I'll hit up stores in the mall like Hollister or AE for other stuff), and it seems to do me just fine. I mean, they've put up with food fights, rolling around in mud and some crazy other stuff, and I'm surprised they haven't up and quit on me.
Besides, I just can't seem to be amused by the styles/designs of more expensive clothes. I'm really simple. Oh, Target has really nice clothes too, actually! I love it
Personally, I just want the material to be study and nothing cheaply made that will tear apart after a few washes.
I care more about quality and that's why I chose to buy some designer name brands. I buy designer names when they are on sale, or through ebay and other ways because I refuse to pay a lot of money for clothes, unless it's a good deal.
I prefer designer brands because of the quality and fit. Typically, the textiles last longer, which makes them a wise investment. There are a handful of top designers I love, and I look for their labels at thrift and consignment stores as well as off-price and outlets. If you are patient and know your designers, you can build a million dollar wardrobe for pennies by being a smart shopper.
Sseeeessshhh.. why would I wear designer clothes?
I'm a Kiwi... we wear feathers!
Some of us better than others... I might add!
I buy them for their fit when I do. I prefer to wear cloths that fit my body correctly and are cut to the shape of the human body. So I do my best not to buy cheap clothing that is cut just straight up and down.
I like to wear designer clothes for the quality and fit, and they always wash up well and keep their shape. However, I buy the majority of my clothes from the sale rack too or from stores like Winners or Marshalls.
I like a bit of both. However my taste changes pretty quickly which is why my focus on fashion is not necessarily longetivity.
I am so careful about my dresses let it be expensive or cheap
I try not to spend too much on clothes (shoes included). I'd rather have a lot of variety to choose from rather than spending a lot on one single outfit.
I don't think it's practical for me. I don't earn that much at all.
I do not prefer to wear expensive or designer clothes, however, I believe in quality of quantity. You pay for what you get!
Yes i more care my designer outfit because that is made from soft fabric, design and embroidery are unique. So, if i not care that things then i will lost them.
you can have blindfold trust for the quality of designer clothes. The concern is that they are expensive but few online stores provide the luxury in less....
I love them. No matter what anyone says about clothes being the same despite the brand, I feel like they're better quality and make me feel better wearing them. They also look better!
I prefer finding clothes made by a brand that supports women or 3rd world countries but otherwise, most brands I wear are US or Canada trying to support home and needy rather than fame
I design and make my own clothing. I have confidence in it, and have my registered fashion business in Vancouver. I charge high, and all materials I choose are first class. Natural linen is my favorite, but I never use real fur. I also use fabric materials to make pictures.

I have no fashion sense. I recently acquired two skirts, above knee length but not scandalous. One is a casual medium-dark brown frayed around the bottom, and the other is an olive green corduroy skirt. There's also...
