What is fashion?
We asked people and this is what they had to say about it…
Natasha Zafar: Anything that makes u feel yourself.
Mehr Ispahani: Fashion is a prevailing style, especially in clothing, hair, makeup, footwear, followed by people and that becomes a fashion statement.
Saba Esam Khattak: Fashion is not always outwards. For me, it has always been how I feel about something on the inside, in sync or not with how I am. Following trends is fun, but nothing beats the feeling when you carry something that defines your personality. You walk an inch taller, you play your smile, you let the wind catch the breeze, you enjoy the sun cast shadows on your face. To some, you still might not LOOK beautiful but you wouldn’t neither mind nor care because you FEEL beautiful. And THAT makes all the difference. Fashion says: Me too, style says: ONLY me!!
Zeynab Zafar Ahmed: Fashion is an expression of self, It’s an art. One that can be perceived in various ways and only those who truly understand the language of Fashion, can really appreciate its various forms.
Maha Usman: For me fashion is any trend that makes me comfortable in my skin; something that gives more meaning to my personality.
Ummara Akhter: Fashion is all about feeling amazing by different looks and acceptance in society.
Duria Ali: Fashion is something that’s comfortable and trendy at the same time.
Roger Frances: Fashion is your personality translated into your wardrobe
Taghreed Wasim: For me fashion is what i look good in, i wont follow a trend just because its THE thing, i will follow it only if I feel it looks good on me !
Mary Imran: It’s the ongoing trend with the present time ..but for me everything I see is not fashion ..everything that suits me is fashion. .
Iyla Hussain: Fashion is an expression of self.
Zeeshan Arif: Fashion is everything…that makes u look different…classy…provided you know well how to carry yourself and you yourself are confident that this makes you look great. I would say…everybody who is experimental these days is called fashionable…but one has to consider that decency should be there…ALWAYS!!!
Uruba Khan: Fashion is expressing your mood and culture through clothing. It can be day to day clothing or special occasions but it tends to reflect your personality and mood.
Maha Dania Qazi: Fashion is a seven letter word like the days of the week. Like each day is different, fashion may be diverse in different parts of the world. Fashion can also be unifying in terms of bringing together people following a common trend. Fashion is fun, frivolous and meaningful. It’s not any one thing.
Fashion is what you are offered four times a year, Style is what you pick out of that fashion, It’s what you make of it once you’ve learned what to accept and ignore based on what looks good on you.
Fashion is part of our daily lives. Its an ever evolving way of expressing who you are and how you feel today. Even people who claim not to follow any trend, wake up each morning and pick clothes they want to wear according to where they are going, who they are going to meet, what defines or suits them. Its’s always there! The clothes, accessories, shoes, bags etc that hit the market are according to the latest trends of course and we all buy them.
Speaking of fashion, we are bringing on board someone who certainly knows her way around it. She is like a breath of fresh air straight from the stunning valley of Hunza. She has a versatile sense of fashion, is an educationist by profession, plays football, sings, dances, is fond of dogs and polo matches, loves shopping, a big foodie, has a contagious smile, and of course who can deny the warmth of her chirpy personality. She is a fashionista in its true sense and she will be speaking ‘fashion’!
We welcome Farwa Hussain to our Wings & Strokes family! She will be writing about what’s hot, what’s not..style, colors, trends, do’s and don’ts and alot more.
Keep visiting to know about all that the fashion world has to offer.
