Couture was an insight into the weird and wonderful minds of some of the world's most talented designers and has a subtle influence down the fashion food chain. High fashion is about selling us a dream but we should be cautious about buying into that whole sale because a lot of high fashion is nothing but an illusion. Likewise for celebrities, who look fabulous you need to remember that there is a whole machine behind them that makes sure that they get on the cover of the magazines and look good on the red carpet. Although fashion might be intimidating to celebrities they love it as much as we do. As for the High Street, they are on a roll and ransacking our wardrobes and showing us that we can have style and quality without breaking the bank. We should not be intimidated we should pick and mix from what is on offer and what we can afford and above all we should create our own personal style because fashion should be about expressing ourselves and having fun, experiement because it is not the end of the world if you get it wrong once in a while. It may only be fashion but it is pretty fabulous.
June Sarpong, Slave to Fashion 2006To sum this up, fashion is fun and it is about taking in the bits that you love and running with it.
