Fashion is a very important aspect of the human life. Like food, man cannot do without fashion.
It serves a lot of purposes. One of such purpose is covering our nakedness which is a basic need like shelter and food. But it goes beyond just that.
Fashion serves as a means to identify a person. Through fashion, you can to some extent define an individual. You can tell what values they stand for. You can tell their background and even taste. You can also tell to some extent where they are from.
Fashion is art and also can be used to show creativity.
Fashion can also be used for fun and entertainment.
Over the years, a lot of people have come to think that fashion is vain and shallow… But that’s wrong!
Fashion is a big deal!
It is deep!
Inventing styles,designing and all demand both mental and physical effort.
On the part of the consumers,fashion helps your general makeup.
Your style and fashion sense go a long way to determine the type of impression people will have about you.
Fashion is the buffet while style is the dish on the plate.
The fashion industry is getting more serious as the days pass by and with the MADE IN NIGERIA products being supported, more designers and stylists are springing up. Only creativity and carving a special niche for your self can make you stand out.
