Every woman asks herself a question every morning, whether to go to work or just hang with the girls? The answer is no, alot of women ask themselves what they should wear. It’s not about what you wear, it’s all about who you wear. Every girl can afford to buy a top but everyone can’t afford a top with a name.
Before the 21st century people called it clothes, a shirt, a skirt or a dress. But today we have names like Zara, DKNY, Prada, Gucci, Dolce & so many more. It’s really funny because people stopped saying “Nice outfit” and now-a-days all they say “damn Prada huh…!?!?!”
Has the fashion industry changed the way people think about style? It’s disappointing to see people going to the gym only to wear the perfect dress. In the movie Bride Wars, Kate Hudson said “You don’t alter Vera Wang for your body; you alter your body for Vera Wang”. There are movies out there that have given women another reason to be judged. Gone are the days, when women look at themselves & try to tailor an outfit for the perfect evening. Today it’s all about tailoring your body for a dress. Women always have been put through the pressures of looking good to impress a man but today it’s all seems to be about making another woman jealous. The bigger the brand, the more the jealousy. I used to remember looking at catalogs to either pick a dress or the material, but now it’s all about which diet plan does one need to get into the outfit.
The biggest crime this industry has done is show size 0 runway models. First of all, women don’t like numbers, hence, you never ask a woman her age or how much she weighs because woman like to judge themselves but not be judged. Sometimes when one calls another fat, she doesn’t look in the mirror to see if she is fat but looks in the mirror to understand if that’s what her husband or boyfriend feels. Women make fashion a part of every aspect in life. I have seen young girls still in school wearing clothes I still can’t afford but want to buy just to fit in. Before peer pressure was all about sex & drugs but today it’s played its way into fashion as well. If you don’t wear the latest brands you will never fit in. This is the message the fashion industry has given young children. School children today know who D&G, Prada, Mango and Zara are.
Today it’s not just about clothing, it’s also about who you are, as people are judged or accepted based on what they are rather than who they are. You maybe the dumbest girl in the world but you will be my best friend if you are spending all daddies’ hard earned money on designer labelled cloths than a proper education. If you are not educated with 16 years of academics, you can always work in the fashion industry as a model, beautician or a stylist but not as lawyers, doctors or CEOs.

Below: Jimmy Kimmel visits Fashion Week is wrapping up in New York City so we sent a crew to Lincoln Center and asked people about designers, trends and events that do not exist. Somehow that didn’t stop them from giving their opinions in this special Fashion Week Edition of #LieWitnessNews.
