Avoiding Bad Fashion for Men

Fashion is all bad, when it is not good. When is fashion good? When everyone accepts it as good, and they all go running – twittering here and there – about it as the latest rage. That lasts for about ten minutes, then everyone starts to question it and challenge it and divide the fashion into the good parts and the parts that smell like day old cheese that has been left in the sun. The fashion starts as an idea; that is copied by more than one.

When enough people copy it, it becomes a fashion trend. After too many people copy it, it is not longer fashionable. This is why it is all bad fashion. It is only a matter of timing when good fashion turns to bad. Fashion spoils the same as cheese. But some cheeses taste better when they are aged and left on the shelf for many years. These are the same with some fashions, they get better with age. Of course they are still spoiled by too many people liking them, but they transcend to becoming “classic fashion” just like a very ripe 10-year-old aged cheese.

If this seems too cheesy, then consider fine red wine. How is it possible that the older it gets the better it gets? Wine never goes out of fashion, because they can just bury it in a cellar for the next hundred years and when they pull it out once again, it will be a marvel. Some fashion ages like wine, but not all of it. The vast majority is bad fashion, which is only as good as a bunch of bananas that will soon be rotten and need to be replaced. The fashion that lasts is the classic fashion and it is hundreds of years old. Just like the fine wine, the classic black and white tuxedo is even better than the first day it was invented. But this is the minority.

A Week Full of Fashion

Fashion week is a week-long event that is held to commemorate the fashion industry and the cogs that keep the wheel moving. Fashion designers, brands and houses display the latest and best of their collection via runway shows. Buyers and the media are prominently present during this activity and this helps the designers to showcase and sell their work. Fashion week is an important event in the lives of the fashionable since it is here which determines the trends that are in Vogue and those which are passé. The most popular and well-known fashion weeks are held in the four major fashion capitals in the world namely New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Fashion has stormed the globe in a big way and some other countries which also host other important fashion weeks in the world are; Madrid, Australia, Rome, Dubai, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Singapore, Toronto, Jakarta, India, Berlin, Barcelona, Seoul, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Los Angeles and Dallas.

Fashion week is a seven day long entertainment cum business event where people from all walks of life fraternize with those from the fashion industry. This event is bi-annual in nature and is held in the major fashion capitals in the world like London, New York, Paris and Milan. Fashion weeks are held several months prior to commencement of the fashion season so that it allows the buyers and press a better chance to preview the trends and designs for that season. January to April hosts fashion shows to showcase the autumn and winter collections. On the other hand, September to November showcases the spring and summer collections. This gives ample time to the buyers, retailers and purchasers to assimilate and include the fashion designers into their stores.
