I would never expect to experience an epiphany (ooh look at all that alliteration) whilst wading through racks of clothes at the Clothes Show in Birmingham but that is exactly what happened.
By a happy accident I found an oversized slogan t-shirt that read “The Earth Without Art is Just Eh” If the top had not been two sizes too large, or had I been in the creative mind-set to think of how to customise the top to make it fit, here would be I styling the t-shirt in a
OTT chic outfit to support my point.
However, I did not. So I encourage you instead to admire this t-shirt as
modelled by this handsome man who can be easily mistaken for a Greek God. This
is only one of many designs which can be purchased HERE.
Excuse my blabbering. What is it that I hear you scream at your screen, get to the point? Ah yes.
Earth is overflowing with art that is expressed in the most extraordinary and beautiful ways. One of these ways is, of course, fashion.
Some would take being stared at whilst walking down a busy street as a sign that the starererer (lots of emphasis on the fact that yes, it is not a real word but I cannot find a suitable replacement my dears) in question is scrutinizing you and your outfit, but I say no.
If your attire has literally forced someone to meet your gaze and scan you with their eyes then surely what you chose to cover your beautiful body with that morning is something to be admired? Fashion should not be taken seriously.
Although I am a lover of trends and the nostalgic eras that designers continue to reincarnate with their clothes, I have nothing but respect for people who dress innovatively and creatively, and not “in trend”. As they treat their body as it should be treated; as a work of art.
John Galliano: Eccentric or inspiring?
Media is always telling us what we should be wearing, though they are only the middle man between big fashion houses and us. Yet where do the designers of said fashion houses get their inspiration from? Us. Rather than letting them dictate what we wear on a daily basis, let us tell them.
Wear what you want to wear without a second glance at those gawping, as long as you feel beautiful why should it matter that somebody else does not approve?
Perhaps I may be taking the idea of fashion too seriously to some. But to me, clothes have the ability to uplift someone’s mood and bring them confidence, overall having a positive outlook on their day.
