WHITE AND ITS MANY INTERPREPTATIONS IN FASHION

In this next blog, I want to talk with you about the symbolism and significance of colors. I’m going to start with my favorite color of all, one loaded with meaning: white.

 

We all know that white is pure. White is joy. Freshness. Well-being. In many different cultures and countries, white has a special purpose, but its general symbolism is lightness. White has a purpose in parts of everyday life, even those you would overlook. For example, it is useful in product advertising and marketing because when used as a background, it provides the best view of the product. In medicine, there is a reason we see doctors and surgeons in white lab coats: it makes them recognizable for their skills and expertise and invokes a sense of cleanliness.

 

When looking at fashion, white can translate into an eternity of interpretations. There are endless associations, all of them symbolic and cultural. One might think of white as being an aristocratic color. It instills wealth and high sophistication. White also signifies innocence, and the most obvious case of this is wedding gowns. In many cultures, a white dress is worn on the day of the wedding to signify purity, although I am personally a supporter of the alternative. White implies the opportunity for new beginnings – across the color wheel, white always appears first. It is a fresh start and the chance for something spotless and immaculate.

 

Another interpretation of white is progress. For this reason, I always advise at least one piece of clothing in white, especially if we are about to make new decisions and in times where we need to keep our energy up and remain focused. It is great for lifting moods and for energy. Along similar lines, one of the more interesting traits to white is that it negates fatigue and lack of stamina. We all have those days when energy is at a minimum, when tiredness is visible on our face, and yet we still have so much to do and overcome. On these days, I suggest an overall white look with very simple and minimalist makeup. How you feel surrounded and clothed by white will bring you lightness and rejuvenation. You will find yourself armed against our greatest daily enemy: tiredness.

 

White inspires courage and confidence, and that most of all, we should trust ourselves. White opens us up to new aspirations and goals. However, due to its neutrality, I think that white should always be combined with another color, which will not only add an appealing contrast, but will also make it more stylish. For tips on what to pair white with, recall minimalism. A popular trend today, it most often implies that in addition to black, you should introduce a neutral white.

 

In terms of fashion, white is mostly worn during the summer, although in my opinion, it should be desired in winter as well and not confined to just one season. It is true that it is not the most efficient of colors because it “gets dirty” quickly, but this is one of the questions I often think about, which is, would it not be just as dirty if on black? But because white reveals all, I think of it as representing Truth when I consider this dilemma of color theory. Of course, this does not mean that if we wear black, that there is no ‘truth’ to it in symbolic terms, but black definitely has more mysticism, mystery, and a starkly different symbolism interwoven. You see here that all colors have their own implications and interpretations.

 

As you know from reading my blogs, I am a firm believer that our personality and inner state are always connected to the external behaviors that we demonstrate. With this in mind, I suggest that you look at the changes that are happening to you and around you that you may not be entirely aware of. Take a closer look and ask how these changes correlate with your current state or frame of mind and then your colors and clothing. We bring our mood with us wherever we go, and the symbolism of colors is always there to describe us a little to those we meet.

 

While researching colors and their healing effect on us, I was reminded many times of non-verbal communication, because how we feel on the inside expresses itself not just through clothing, but also through colors. It might not happen on all days, but you should find comfort by allowing some white in on those days that you feel you need a boost. White will definitely bring you that.

 

I will admit that this color sometimes requires courage to wear, but my attitude towards fashion is that sometimes we find ourselves wanting a break from the already established trends. It is important to try something new because maybe you are ready for change without really knowing. And that’s why I suggest beginning your journey and growth with White.

 


Aesthetic

What is aesthetics?How does aesthetics determine us? Who are esthetes?These are just a few of the questions I have asked myself countless times through the years.

Aestheticsis of Greek origin, and it means to be observable or sensitive, as they are interpreted from the philosopher Immanuel Kant’s translation. In the science of art, aestheticssignifies the beautiful or pleasing.

In philosophy, aesthetics is defined as a special form of human creation. It is aspecific branch of philosophy that examines and appreciates everything that is beautiful and valuable in addition to the essence of an artwork.In the visual arts, as well as in other disciplines, wherever the senses are involved, aesthetics play a role. It might be the color, the shape, the content, the movement, the sound… but one thing is for sure, it always stems from our inherent tastes and instincts.

Everyone is inclined towards the aestheticbecause of our senses. Some people might have a stronger sense for it than others, but it is within us all and will cause an attraction towards some things and a repellence from others. What is most important and perhaps most interesting is that we all have a different set of aesthetics from one another. This diversity makes us all individual; what some people are drawn to, others cannot stand.If you take anything away from my words, please remember the importance of being who you are and accepting your tastes and style, both inside and out, as part of you.

First of all, let’s discuss the importance of our inner aesthetics. In order for something to be considered a work of art – and everything can be considered as art with the right perspective – we need to possess a certain set of senses that recognizes it as so. When it comes to aesthetics, our inner voice will lead us to developing and following our own sense of style. What you find beautiful is just one of many examples.This is why I believe it is so important to follow your instincts, because that is what determines so many of our actions and decisions.

External or material aesthetics vary as well and often reflect how we feel internally. I can easily remember my first fashion collection and envision my inner state and needs at that time. The natural flow from my thoughts and emotions to the physical garment is “cleansing,” and this process can be noticed in each of my collections that followed. Of course, there were “wanderings” and searches, and the two – the internal and external – did not always align.If I wanted to make some experiments, I did.

I often like to see someone’s work, or feel their energy, if it can tell me more about the creator’s personal aesthetic more than their words might say. Sometimes, my own set of aesthetics will not match, but that is completely natural. Afterall, we are not all the same.

As someone whose aesthetics are very important to them, but also particular and specific to whom I am, I know why it is so important for us to develop this along our own journeys. No matter what,you will find that your set of aesthetics will pull you in one way or another.

The relationship between art and aesthetics is very close and sometimes hard to distinguish, but their importance is great if we learn how to create something new and express ourselves through it.

 


Lifestyle Meets Dress Code

How much does our style effect our lifestyle? How much does lifestyle effect out style? I have long wondered what the factors are that affect our style and sense of dress. What are the components that make an outfit work as everything comes together?

From my own experience, i know that there can be many factors that all have and influence: Our jobs or careers, the type of society that surrounds us, the current and latest trends, the type of place we livein, personal tastes.. and so much more! I always pay special attention to the last one, whis is our unique taste. As strange as it may sound, this has something to do with our external expression. Very often these are the preferences or inclinations that are imposed upon us by media, by others, or by the our culturethat we accept as part of ourself, even though we may not see ourselfs reflected in it, Still, because of how ingrained they are in us, it can be difficult to notice.

Think about the many choices you make during the day when it comes to your clothes. How many of them are based off of what you want versus what society tells you? For example, you likely wouldnt wear dramatic, smokey makeup to just another day at the office- unless you have a glamourous job, thats it!. Just as you wouldent go bare face in jeans and a t-shirt to a special event. These are all inherent style trends we learn from our society that we barely even realize.

Furthermore, out “style” or outfit choice is not just what you might wear for this ot that occasion. Our style of dressis our expression of our inner state. It is a very subconscious way of describing ourself and communicating with our external enviroment how we feel inside. Style really does entail everything, but most of all, it includes our behavior.

Since i startedin fashion, i have been increasingly seeing and “reading” tge different ways people express themselfs outside of verbal communication. all of this comes down to aethetics, beginning with how we feel internally, and then how we express it externally. The way we see interpret colors, shapes, and everything that surrounds us affects our own style. Whatever one feels inside, they will display it in some manner on the outside.

Another imortant factor that influences our style is what others think. In my opinion, if you are swayed by this, it is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, and it show your lack of confidence in yourself. If you notice that you are more concerned by how others perceive you then by how you feel about yourself, this way of thinking can be destructive. You should always focus more on your image of yourself , becouse, trast me, people will sense when you begin putting too much though into how they think of you. Yet your confidence will always shine from within.

A good sense of style doesnt not require large sums of money, and it shoulent bring much demage to your wallet. All it takes is getting out of the box and your comfort zone to live without being concerned what anyone else thinks of you. Your style is your own brand. Be stylish and be yourself.
