Georg Simmel, the German sociologist said of Fashion:
“Fashion is a form of social relationship that allows those who wish to conform to the demands of a group to do so. It also allows some to be individualistic by deviating from the norm.”
So, for instance, in the corporate world where one has to conform to a certain dress code,
how does one also express individuality?
And if you can’t afford a designer jacket? Have a root around a charity shop a buy some silk ties. There is enough fabric in them to line a waistband or pocket and you will have your own designer garment at a fraction of the price.
