I’m a firm believer that self-expression through fashion is something that each person should practice. We are all unique and we should show what makes us different with pride. How we dress has a huge part in the first impression we leave on people. Also, we always dress according to the mood we’re in. Think about the colors you choose when you’re happy, of the type of clothes you choose when you’re feeling confident. To put it simply – your outfit communicates nonverbally with people as much as you do verbally.
Self-Expression From the Designer’s Perspective
When I’m working on my collections, I often have a vision of a woman I’m trying to create for. Although collections are different, they are still related to the same thread that connects them all. Good style is all that is related to us, what is in us, and that is our charisma, energy, above all, life awareness, and fashion. Often women might not be noticed just by what she’s wearing, but much more by her aura and charisma.
On the fashion scene, we see well-styled shows, from the beginning to the end. It’s a well-told story and concept made by designers or stylists. It is necessary to think about every detail, but it is crucial to be moderate because if you overdo it, it can create completely opposite effect on the audience.
Self-Expression Through Fashion Is Fun
Lifestyle, the music we listen to, the places we go to, it all affects how we dress and what we like to wear. Based on that how we dress, not just for making premature conclusions, one can imagine what kind of life we live in. What is particularly interesting is the connection between interior design and us. I had the opportunity to see the different living spaces of different clients, and just by looking around, I could conclude what is that person’s occupation, which is the colors he/she likes, and what is their fashion style.
What we hear most often is that good style comes with a lot of money, but it is far from the truth. Good style doesn’t always mean using expensive stuff. Perfect styling often can be achieved with small details, accessories, and the way they are incorporated. There is also the makeup. With good makeup and appropriate jewelry, we can highlight a very simple dress.
Self-Expression through fashion is something that most of us don’t think about. I think that’s a shame not to play with your style and experiment. It’s a fun way to get to know yourself and to be creative. Fashion and art should not be separated. From the perspective of the designer, inspiration is the most important thing. Whether it is in the detail, in a person, or in an object, it drives us to create something new and innovative. That is when the beautiful process of designing starts.
