A Sophisticate and Fashion

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower" Albert Camus 

The Fall is when everything begins to die. In preparation for winter Mother Nature prepares for the cold and the wet snowfall. The trees begin to die and their leaves drop from their branches. As everything is dies around us we begin to live. For us it is the start of another school season and of course,  the new Fall fashion is revealed. 

Fall Fashion is typically the biggest season for the fashion world because whatever is started will continue and drive the designs and trends throughout the year. The fashion is typically drastically different from the previous year to prove the point that it is a new year, it is the start of something brand new.

It is the time for new beginnings, innovation, and re-invention. 

Fashion is creative, in fact it is art. "Halston, Lagerfeld, de la Renta. And what they did, what they created was greater than art because you live your life in it" Nigel from the movie "The Devil Wears Prada". Fashion designers are leaders because they are able to bring their imagination and talent to develop art that most other people cannot. They are leaders who with their uniqueness and lack of fear to show what is in their hearts and imaginations create art for the rest of us to follow. Their imagination and passion provides us with the ability to bring our imagination to fruition and make our dreams become reality. Who has ever imagined walking into a room where all eyes are on you because what you are wearing emphasizes and flatters who you REALLY are in all of your natural beauty. 

Fashion can be controversial, too. Photo shoots occur in magazines where the way the fashion is worn and the subsequent images can bring to light important issues that may have been overlooked. It can be shocking and pushing the boundaries in a safe medium. One of the few safe mediums that still exist in media today, fashion rebounds from controversial topics based on the fact that is and has always has been modern day art. 

As Coco Chanel once stated "Fashion fades but style remains the same".

Since fashion is temporary it allows for a Sophisticate to let her imagination and creativity to run free with few or no boundaries. Fashion represents and fulfills her independent and free nature. Fashion allows a sophisticate to takes risks in a safe manner. Fashion can evolve to become her style. With fashion, sophisticate can show off to the world what is distinctly hers at the same being able to re-invent herself. A Sophisticate is resilient and therefore, excites in the opportunity to have a second chance, the ability to start over, and have a new beginning. Basically, a Sophisticate in the 21st Century loves being involved with anything groundbreaking or that is brand new, unique, different, an idea or concept that has never been done before. 

A Sophisticate is passionate about fashion because each new design she sees allows her heart to run free.  In the end, a Sophisticate and fashion is a successful relationship because like fashion a Sophisticate in the 21st Century is creative, imaginative, resilient, re-inventive, beautiful, unique, and most importantly, fun. ;D!
