Fashion has spread in all spheres of our lives. Fashion designing is a lucrative profession. Fashion parades and shows are held to exhibit the latest dresses and latest trends all around the world, the booming fashion industry of course does not need any introductions. Dresses are designed to fit in every occasion, ceremonies, places and time zones.
Students generally try to pick fashion trends from films and media. Male students spend a lot of resources and time on fashion trends. Sadly, the fashion industry has earned a rogue name for itself for immoral activities. They take to drinking and smoking in the name of fitting in to the fashion circles. They fail to realize that these adversely affect their health. Rave Parties and unethical activities have become a part of fashion spectrums in the modern period. However, fashion instills confidence in the mind of the youngsters. Fashion should be promoted to enrich our life, not degrade it.
Basically, man is fashionable because of a dormant inherent desire to see good and to look good. People from all over the world are fashion conscious. Trends have consumed our society. Fashion does not only mean a popular style of clothes and hair etc, bit it also includes etiquettes, manners and habits. Everybody wants to look beautiful and stylish. New and current styles in clothes and manners etc, help people look more smart, attractive, stylish and presentable. Some people feel happy wearing fashionable dresses. Others go in for fashionable hair styles or both. Some others adopt the latest trend in their speech and manners. Basically, people never like to be out of touch with trends to succumb to social norms.
Fashion causes an wakening among the youth. One becomes conscious of one’s being. Fashion also relieves the monotony of a mechanical routine to some extent. It presents a contrast to the uniform dress worn by school children and other people. Fashion also reflects progress and growth of civilisation. It is a mark of social progress, prosperity and change for novelty and thrill.
