A Post-NYFW Reflection



Fashion is not about money, fame or status. It's not about how many followers you have or your average amount of likes per post. It doesn't matter how many arbitrary awards you can rack up or how many parties, events or shows you can be invited to.

Fashion is about freedom, independence, and autonomy. It's about having the boldness to unapologetically be who you are and design your aesthetic and your lifestyle as you choose. It's about fearlessly developing yourself in all creative aspects, pushing your boundaries without reservation and discovering new ways to express yourself honestly. Personal style—like everything in life—is art, and art is creating something in the universe that no one else can.

Don't let anyone tell you that fashion is about anything else. Don't get caught up in the BS that permeates the fashion industry. Don't compromise. Be who you are, and let that be its own reward. Live, learn, and—most importantly—never quit!

Fashion - is what you have inside you
And many people, who don't understand it - just envy us
Cause, we are FREE!

It's true, but if we don't have money sometimes we can't afford our art :(
Inspiring anyway.

I'm biased...you do need money to afford clothes. This could have been written better. I think that being in the fashion world is competitive no doubt, but what makes it great is you can be yourself and not care what people think about you. That should have been emphasized--fashion is what is given to you and style is how you make it. In the end we are all here to inspire or to be inspired.

When people say fashion, sometimes I think they also mean style but it's not always mentioned. Fashion can be purchased by anyone and style is partly what you make of it, you don't need much money to have style. Maybe this is what she means

"It's not just the clothes, it's how you live and what your dreams are. It's a passion, it's a love." One of my favorite quotes about fashion which is by Ralph Lauren.
