A Beginner’s Guide to Fashion
Interested in Fashion? Here’s What You Need To Know
Fashion is not easy y’all, although it looks glamorous, and exciting, and fun, (which it is) it’s still a lot of hard work. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting into fashion for your own personal closet, or if you want to work within the industry. Fashion as a whole takes time, patience, and a great deal of dedication. Most issues people come across is how to even get started. We’ve got you all covered though of course. Here’s a beginner’s guide to fashion to get you on the right track.
The first thing you must understand is that fashion and style are two very different things. Fashion is all about the items that you curate for a collection. A curated collection can be for your own closet, or for a fashion house that you’re working for. Style is how you put these items together. We’ll continue to focus on fashion for now, because truly understanding fashion is the first step.
The best way to curate fashion items is to collect pieces that mean something to you. Another thing that people don’t realize is that fashion is art. If you’re involved with fashion you will begin to realize how spectacular it is in the world of art. Fashion is the only form of moving art in the whole wide world. This is why the articles of clothing and accessories that you choose has to speak volumes. Your fashion choices say a lot about who you are as a person, what you believe in, and so much more.
When you look at fashion over time you’ll begin to realize how much the history of fashion means to the industry. The history of fashion may speak to you on a personal level as well. Everyone heavily involved in fashion has a favorite fashion era. Fashion’s history play a big role in new collections that hit the runway during fashion week. Rihanna did a whole line inspired by Marie Antoinette that was absolutely divine. The designs were so classic, yet modern at the same time. It’s important to be able to pinpoint influences throughout time.
Once you’ve begun to get the hang of how serious fashion is you’re ready to move onto the emotional aspects of it. Fashion has so much emotional power that’s truly unexplainable. The best way to create a fashionable wardrobe for yourself is to only pick items that speaks to you. A good rule of thumb is to select items that you’ve fallen head over heels in love with. Your fashion items should make you feel something instantly when you look at them, feel them, and try them on.
