Fashion is the devil. And thosep pictures are scary.

To show off how stupid and illogical humans (designers and dressers alike)can be when they put their minds to it. But u could just consider fashion to be a never-ending experiment in Sociology. It shows us how gregarious humans are...much like locusts. Besides that fashion is extremely useful in one of the most natural processes: the selection of mating partners. Or should I be more blunt: SEX

the girl on the right is scaring me.

NEITHER. Fashion is a form of art. Not all people like sculpture. Not all people like fashion. Perhaps you just aren't cultured enough.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 7:18:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Really, what's the point of anything?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 7:22:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
i was just going to ask that Ibentley3. cause if you really want to, you can question the point of anything and its relavence
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 7:42:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Neither. It's a form or expression and art at times.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 4/4/04 - 7:42:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just like it has been for countless centuries.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 6/13/04 - 5:38:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
bona
cultered enough?
WTF?
culture has nothing to do with wearing clothes designed by some butthole
and its not art either
its only art if you make your own clothes to wear yourself
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 6/13/04 - 5:54:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
It means that th scary stuff that people wore in the late 80's early 90's won't come back for at least another few year! when it does, I'm retreating to my little hole in the wall to rock backwards and forwards in the feotal position!

i really don' get it, there are maybe a few people in the world that can wear that stuff, i think the designers should spend more money on creating clothes for us average people. It is an art form, but a somewhat useless one.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 9:59:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it is a type of artform and expression.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 9:59:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Therefore I think it's neither.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 9/11/04 - 8:48:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Judging by THOSE pictures... I'd vote for the latter.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 9/11/04 - 9:12:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both. The more you conform, the richer the designers get.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 9/11/04 - 9:13:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
The point of fashion:

1. To make girls wish for what they can't afford.
2. To make girls spend money on things they don't need.

15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 9/11/04 - 9:51:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Neither of the two options given. It's a form of art and self-expression.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 9/11/04 - 9:51:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
And I actually LIKE the first picture. So there.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 9/22/04 - 9:33:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
make designers rich
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 12/29/04 - 2:19:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
So...this is art: http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images...
But this isn't? http://www.papermag.com/stylin/fashion/s...

I'm not buyin' it. The point of fashion? Is art! Like painting, photography, and music.
"and its not art either
its only art if you make your own clothes to wear yourself"
That's like saying, "That painting isn't art. It's only art if you make your own paintings to hang."
Some people don't have that talent, ya know? Anyways, these things are overpriced just as much as paintings are, because somebody not only spent time, effort, and talent creating them, but instead of a flat easel they have a human body to coat.

the point is to degrade the ones who hav individuality and a style of their own which they like, to categorize the world by materialistic statues and to create a economic gain for the sellers
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 2/3/05 - 3:00:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
The point is to make the designers rich by making it the only way to conform.
Oh and btw I don't care if the fashions of the 80s/early 90s are 'in'. As soon as something's in it gets taken over by blonde bitches of about 13 years old (I'm 16. I have a brain. I can wear things my little cousin would look stupid in)
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 6:48:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
It really depends on the purpose of buying what you buy. If you only buy it because everyone else does and you feel like you HAVE to fit in, then its conformity. If your buying it just because you personally like it, then I guess just to make someone rich.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/3/07 - 10:28:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think that some fashion is just to make the designers even richer than what they are allready.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/3/07 - 11:45:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I see most fashion shows as displays of art, because most of the clothes you see on the runway wouldn't be worn in everyday life.
I suppose it could also be a way of marking a certain time or decade.
