I would say Fashion is an Expression at a particular place and period in a certain way through clothing, footwear, hairstyles,body posture and more.What we wear speaks alot before we say anything.For me I can say fashion controls our speech at some fashion controls the opinions and beliefs,it plays a role in society.Fashion to me is making money off a collection and this is only possible if you have enough in stock too.It requires skills ,budget and marketing .With skills I mean strong sewing skills , artistic ability,sense of style .To maintain this one needs enough capital,I do need it,I hope I qualify.My business was greatly affected during covid 19 pandemic,when I saw this I saw a ray of hope.Blessings.
