Unique.. not

Either you like it or not, nobody can be their own person and have their own style. Everybody has this urge to have that "one and only" look yet you are just part of that same crowd. Fashion market knows that the individual of today wants to be unique, therefore they try to pull you in and make you believe you are "personalized" just by using various customization and different marketing strategies. As much as you try to be your own, Everybody gets their inspiration by everybody else. Even designers of today gets their inspiration from past creations and history. It is part of the cycle to get inspired by everyone and everything. As Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel would say “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” I admire this quotation because it is so true. We get inspired and either we think about it or not we create our style based on whats around us. From the person you barely saw walking past you on the street to the ad in your magazine you briefly looked at. The unconscious part of your brain captures it and stores it. And somehow would reflect later on in something you would do or something you would wear.

amazing movie. Now waiting to see Coco before Chanel
