Fashion is entwined in our lives. Clothes are a basic requirement. Even in the least expensive clothing store, fashion has a presence. The quality of the fabric is not the same as that of Ready-to-Wear or Haute Couture, but the design trends are. From ruffles to the military look to stripes, these are trends that can be found on the most expensive fashion lines and in the discount stores.
Fashion appears in music videos, on stage, in movies, in offices, and on the streets. It’s open to individual interpretation as well as to conformity and uniformity. It can be a way to rebel or join in. It can be a way to identify who you are or what you do.
It seems that almost everyone has a fashion line. I think that means there are more opportunities for creativity as well as affordability of fashion for everybody. Fashion designers have designed less expensive lines for discount stores, such as Simply Vera, Vera Wang for Kohl’s, or American Glamour Badgley Mischka on HSN. Even my favorite stylist, Rachel Zoe, has a fashion line for QVC. Have you managed to be fashionable on a budget?
