Fashion is a truly unique form of art. Ever-changing, constantly evolving, and sometimes looking back to the past, the world of fashion provides us with a wearable form of art. At times conservative and practical, and sometimes seemingly ludicrous, trends in the fashion industry never cease to surprise us. Perhaps those that are more involved in the fashion world view it a different way – seeing fashion as a living and breathing organism. Either way, the world of fashion has inspired many to ponder its value and place in society. The following quotes from some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment may provide some insight.
Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.
You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.
The customer is the final filter. What survives the whole process is what people wear. I’m not interested in making clothes that end up in some dusty museum.
I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.
-Yves Saint Laurent
Fashion is not necessarily about labels. It’s not about brands. It’s about something else that comes from within you.
Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.
When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I would buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.
You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it, you’re nobody.
