What is fashion?

When I first was asked to define fashion the first thing that came to my mind was self expression. This is part of it but now I know that it is just the tip of the iceberg. Fashion it’s a industry, a business, a phenomenon. Fashion is so broad and it’s not just one thing. It starts from one individual and than it takes a global scale and it affects the entire world. Fashion is impacted by events that happen at a certain time period and it impacts us. Fashion can empower us but at the same time it can lower our self-esteem. Fashion can build countries and open new work places but at the same time it can exploit people. During this semester I have learned that fashion isn’t just a shallow thing that focuses only on one individual but it focuses on all our society and how we dress and purchase clothes can show a lot about our identity.
