Dolce and Gabbana – SS15 Milan – beauty trends

Clothes are essential, every day and routine, they also serve as tribal markers, as a uniform belonging to a particular group, culture or section of society, to describe a particular period of history, and as a work of art.

This journey will never end as long as we (humanity) are around. So yes, I have always been interested in clothes and fashion – not only for its historic or cultural value but purely because I like to observe how people choose to express themselves through their clothes.

I have never followed fashion blindly or ever been called a fashion victim by my peers but still fashion remains one of my abiding interests – since I have started learning to sew, I have become interested in history of fashion as well. Nowadays, I am sporadically researching on things like who set the trend or wore the first navy inspired striped tee with jeans (haven’t found the answer yet!) or why I like the original Doc Martens shoes – because of its military inspired design or why is denim so popular? Etc.,

I have many favorite designs that have been around forever and I wear them regardless of what’s hot or not… I wear all the cuts and silhouettes– wide, narrow, tapered, flared, fitted, skinny, relaxed, boot cut, kick flared, cigarette with all kinds of lengths mini, midi and maxi – it actually depends on my mood, not what’s currently hot, so no, I no longer religiously follow the fashion weeks across the fashion capitals of the world for trend forecasting or for personal wardrobe choices – it’s more for its curiosity value now. I still tune in.

So here’s what’s going to be hot or cool next year in spring and summer… Enjoy.
