History Of Designer Fashion
Fashion design combines design and aesthetics to clothes and accessories. It can be influenced by almost anything. In fact, the reason why most fashion designers wear what appears to be a uniform is that they are so busy looking around themselves to find inspiration to spend a ton of time on their own wardrobes. In that sense, fashion designers are like architects, they’re like painters or filmmakers, with their creative minds constantly wandering.
Designer fashion is all about accessories! You can make the simplest black dress look like it’s ready for the catwalk. A classic handbag, saris, designer scarves, ka-shas, nazzy shoes and you’re ready to hit the down. Jewelry is just as important too. Classic white pearls or a stunning silver chain with some sparkle would really stand out in a crowd. Just remember to wear the clothes, don’t ever let the clothes wear you. You have to be confident! A killer personality is a true sign of a true fashionista. Smile and stand up straight, you’d be surprised how much more attention you’ll get by doing so.
Generally speaking, there are three types of fashion, haute couture, ready-to-wear, and mass market. Haute-couture is made-to-measure fashion items, that are created for individual clients. Until the 1950s most high-end fashion items were haute-couture. These pieces are one of a kind and usually made of expensive fabrics which often have to detail that is sewn by hand. Because of the quality and time involved to produce such an item, haute couture is very expensive and only worn by the rich and famous of the world.
Ready-to-wear clothes aren’t made for individual customers, but great care is taken in the production of the items and the fabrics used are of a high quality. A sense of exclusivity still exists in ready-to-wear clothing, as pieces tend to be produced in small quantities. Fashion houses present their ready-to-wear collections for the season during international Fashion Weeks.
Mass Market fashion consists of ready-to-wear clothes(ka-sha) that are made in large quantities and of cheaper fabrics, making them affordable to the masses. Unlike exclusive ready-to-wear collections(Semi precious stones) that take a trendsetting, often avant-garde approach to fashion design, mass market fashion tends to wait a season to ensure that there is a market for the particular look before they start producing and selling the items.
People who are interested in fashion tend to take a lot of pride in owning designer things(saris). Having even the smallest high-end items can reinvent their wardrobes. People who are interested in fashion also like to stand out and set trends rather than follow them, and that means paying attention to cultural influences and occasionally, daring to be different
