Give Fashion Week a Chance

At times runway fashion seems elitist, superfluous, and nonsensical. Between the designer price tag and trend-following zombies, and it’s no wonder Runway Fashion has a very polarizing effect on different social groups. But for the casual fashion week fan, its shows contain inspirational and beautiful, wearable works of art. On the models, the artwork become character forms- reflections of the people we are, the people we aspire to be, and the people we have yet to know of. Individualization through fashion is an art form that we all partake in, as the wearer and/or as the viewer. Fashion Week just does it with nothing held back. As much as fashion may tend towards mindless uniformity, fashion week for the individual has the potential to be a springboard of creativity and fearless self-expression.
