The fashion industry has changed. What was very rule following and semi-risk adverse is now rebellious and subversive, it’s used as a positive platform to propel and influence needed changes. Our goal this month is to emphasize that.
“We need to make fashion relevant again” - Olivier Rousteing
Rousteing said this about a year ago in the New York Times, the industry has come far since then, but it still has a long way to go. Currently, the world is going through its own metamorphosis, and the new generation is creating their own paradigm that is a lot more inclusive, excepting, and embracing than in previous decades. Like people, brands are constantly reinventing themselves; a new design direction is forged through the eyes of the leader. Lately the industry is either setting the trend of the decade or creating art that references and/or makes a political statement. The sole purpose of fashion nowadays is to cause waves, start a conversation, and make a statement. Long gone are the days when political statements in the fashion industry are taboo and controversial, in fact, now not only is that expected, that’s the goal.
