More Information about Fashion
Fashion is an extremely important element to modern life; our choice of clothing, to some extent, helps define us as people. And of course, at the very least, our clothes help keep us warm, covered and comfortable. The question of when clothing was invented is still the subject of huge debate, but it is widely believed very early humans adapted animal skins and foliage to help protect them from the elements. Since then, technological developments, such as the invention of techniques like knitting and weaving, different cultures have expressed themselves using specific fashion styles. Take, for example, the stove pipe hats and long black dresses worn by the Victorians, or the frilly ruffs donned by the Tudors – all these styles we born out of the desire to make a statement.
These days, the fashion industry is a massive multi-billion pound industry featuring a wide range of household name retailers - both on the high-street and online - the likes of which you’ll find right here. These stores tend to take their cues from fashion magazines such as, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, as well as directly from the catwalks which showcase innovative new designs and styles, created by the world’s most prestigious designers. And then of course there are the film, TV and music stars, who tend to set their own trends. And all this means mountains of inspiration to help you find the right look for you.
