Fashion is a way of life; an attitude that transcends through your ensemble displaying your own originality. It allows people to express their feelings and make statements through their clothes and accessories. For instance, wearing a sexy outfit may illicit an individual to feel more sexy and playful. The classicism and elegance of fashion is evolving, allowing it to take on a touch of originality, fantasy, and sensuality not only in the fabrics, but in designs and styles. This Contemporary and relaxed attitude creates a look by associating colors and designs which can transform jeans, shirts, purses or even dresses in a unique and glamorous collaboration. Imagery is a new concept used by fashion designers to enhance these creative possibilities.
In the context of today’s civilization, the concept of imagery comes to life. Imagery no longer has boundaries and can now be applied to multiple surfaces. It began with printed t-shirts, and now, thanks to new technologies a photo can be part of almost any object. In the past people relied on framed photographs to create a more relaxed emotional state. In today’s world, a frame is not limited to the metal object that sits on your desk and holds a picture, but rather an item that is carried with you anywhere you may go.
The fact is that history seemingly repeats itself. Only recently we saw influences from the 70’s and now undertones from the 80’s are beginning to surface. This fall fashion trends will include bright colors and mixed original designs. In the world of accessories, the must do(s) and must not(s) have changed, revealing another side of fashion.
Fashion has become a pleasure rather than an obligation. Designers work hard to be the leaders in new trends and to come up with the next legendary accessory. They experiment with embellishments, colors and regardless of styles, create the perfect elegance making fashion the perfect weapon of seduction. The current trend is colorful, making the solid color purse no longer a stylish commodity. In Paris, the fashion capital of the world, you can already see famous fashion designers displaying their uniquely created and colorful accessories. In today’s society, promoting uniqueness is a good thing. People look for the trendy accessories with an individually unique touch that matches their own personality. Purses will become more than purses, they will become unique artistic illustrations. Artistic Designers such as Joanna Wiejak, Laurent Maurice and Sophie Varela are already showing us the future in Fashion. Their designs play with bright colors and artistic drawings (e.g., mangas, illustrations, etc.). A few fashion designers go even one step further and melt personal photos into these new generation designs. The photo, then, appears to be part of the design giving high fashion accessories this unique touch people are after. While fashion trends may change, the photos that are incorporated into the overall design are timeless.
In other words, with this revolution of imagery, the use of photos is limitless and will bring to everyone a feeling of personalized fashion. Even though Fashion should not transform who you are, it can transform your image and allow you to help create the trend.
