We live in a world surrounded by many things that have to do with either the technology, the latest equipment or the latest fashion. And fashion has gained its status today in almost all areas of life. Fashion can be divided into two groups: one group that follows and incorporates fashion trends, and the other group that creates fashion and style statements for others to follow. It can also be extended to another group of people who rarely have anything to do with fashion trends, but still follow their own style to create their own unique personality. Add another style to the fashion world.
Fashion is not just cosmetics and make-up or hairstyle. It's a sense of charisma to look good in everything you wear, and that magic is created with the right kind of accessories that make a pleasant image with the footwear and garments. People who can not afford to buy expensive clothes often look their best in their casual wear, by showing themselves to be that kind of sophistication and creating an aura around them with the confidence to look good.
There are countless types of fashion and trends change with the seasons. From the early '60s and' 70s to the present millennium, the shape, looks and thoughts about fashion trends have changed immensely.
In India, much of the fashion has been influenced by the Hindi film industry, popularly known as Bollywood. The trends that have changed over time are clearly visible in the films made in the 1960s and 1970s and show how they have evolved in different forms and produced a style that is widely watched by the general public can. People have been imitating the West from the beginning, and this was no exception. The clothes made in the 60s and 70s were heavily influenced by the western countries and got a traditional touch. The flares, scarves and hairstyle were widely used as a style icon in those days. Later in the 80s and 90s, the fashion world sizzled like never before. There was a desire of people to look different, stylish and modern, and this was reflected in their attitude to their outfit, new hairstyles, make-up, accessories such as purses, earrings, necklaces, matching shoes, etc.
People were aware of every new thing that was marketed, and they copied the styles of their Bollywood idols. Bollywood began as a platform for theatrical artists and developed into a commercial entry point for teenagers and aspirants for a career in the film and fashion industry. This gave the youth of today the opportunity to emphasize the fashion world. Art and music have always belonged to the past and are rooted with more features and facilities deep in the present.
Today, fashion, art, music, designers, dance, etc. have a permanent place in the industry and people can accept everything that has to do with this industry as a profession. Art and music have long been part of the school's activities, and the Higher Colleges are now offering various courses to improve their professionalism in these areas. There are also various drama schools and a small screen, d. H. The television has opened the door to highlighting the talent of young minds through numerous platforms for music and dance. This is the innovation of the millennium in creating jobs and working in the fashion industry. The trends we see are evoked by the fashion houses that regularly present their inventions, many of which are popular in FTV, Zee Trendz and TLC channels. We can also take a look at the elegant outfits that present the models. Modeling is also one of the platforms for entering the fashion world today.
In recent years, fashion has been limited to the actors in the film or those brave enough to show themselves in the public eye that they are fashionable. Others only wooed them behind closed doors. Slowly, as times changed, we could see the women showing their style in traditional saree with an embroidered blouse and a different neck style. Then we saw how the saree was draped in different styles like the Bengali style or the Gujarati style etc. The women released their freedom of choice, and this was evident in their appearance with a high-heeled slipper or the handbag she wore, or how she kept her saree or the hair and make-up she wore. All these changes led to the invention of the Churidhars and then the Salwar Kameez and finally the fashion of the dresses. Women accepted the fact that they could not be faulted, and the men, of course, loved seeing the attractive side of women and imagined the idea of their spouse.
This shift in public attitudes has been well received by fashionistas and a huge market has been created to meet the needs of the public. Today, fashion creates a new look with a specific style for a specific person and keeps up with the latest trends in the market. This industry is known for its glamor and blend of Indian tradition and culture, which has flowed into the designer fashion of the models.
People love to experiment with different textures of materials used in the outfits, and so the designers give them a wide selection of dresses with all kinds of garments. There is the traditional combination of khadi and silk that is currently producing waves for both men's and women's wear. Then we have the embroidery in Zardosi, Swarovski studs and Lehangas and Multi Stoned works in Bridal Collection Saris etc. Then the most sought after materials like cotton, polyster, chiffon, crush materials in different iconoclastic designs and styles.
For the designers, there is always the hope that the youth wants a change in fashion and is happy to maintain the trend with a fusion of Indian and Western mix of fashionable clothing. Even the youth of today is very practical in terms of styling for a specific occasion. Be it a party or for a marriage or the casual look, they want the best and they believe that they look the best. And to do that, people go one step ahead to make sure they have everything in their wardrobe for every occasion.
Apart from the fashionable clothing and fashion that is currently popular, people want to try something that fits their attitude. So the market started with a woman's own friend – the purse or wallet. The fresh look of a purse with gorgeous colors and its stylish features like the chain handle or the jazzy zippers with numerous pockets in different shapes attracted the audience like never before. And with the growing demand for branded wallets, it became a must for every woman to do her shopping. The other accessories have also created a place in the market. Just a few to quote, the earrings and necklaces, the various belts, wrist bands and brooches, the stiletto and its wonderfully embroidered party slippers, as well as the brotherly high, sturdy shoes that give a perfect cowboy look, etc.
Fashion has always been a very interesting topic for all women, and now the trend has even challenged men to compete for a more attractive look for a remarkable future in the fashion world, making them a fully acceptable thing for all genres of people do.
