A na koniec mała kulinarna ciekawostka :) Słyszałyście kiedyś o Batatach? Słodkich, amerykańskich ziemniakach? Kupiłam je z ciekawości i dzisiaj podałam jako dodatek do obiadu, są pyszne! Mają smak zbliżony trochę do dyni, trochę do marchewki. Przepis na ich przygotowanie znalazłam w internecie, jest banalny i naprawdę smakowity :)) Oto on:
• Piekarnik nagrzać do 200 stopni. Bataty umyć, osuszyć i pokroić na kawałki. Oprószyć solą, pieprzem i wysmarować oliwą z oliwek. Blachę do pieczenia wyłożyć folią aluminiową i ułożyć ziemniaki. • Piec do miękkości przez około 30 - 40 minut (sprawdzić widelcem). Pod koniec pieczenia na ziemniakach ułożyć gałązki tymianku, aby się lekko podsuszyły i nadały aromatu.
I moje Bataty, tutaj przed pieczeniem:
A tu już po, niestety głodomorki już zdążyły się do nich dorwać i do zdjęcia zostało tylko tyle :) :
Elegancja...zazwyczaj się z nią mijam :) Nie mam czasu na prasowanie kołnierzyków w koszulach czy kantów przy spodniach, szpilki mnie denerwują, sukienki i spódnice toleruję tylko w wakacje :)
Najlepiej czuję się w luźnych dżinsach, za dużych swetrach i wygodnych butach...niestety dla mnie, są takie okazje które wymagają "wystrojenia się"..tak też było w ostatnią niedzielę, kiedy miała Chrzciny moja cudna siostrzenica :) Ponieważ byłam kontuzjowana (dla nie zorientowanych polecam poprzedni post), mój misterny plan bardzo eleganckiego ubioru, przygotowywanego kilka tygodni wstecz legł w gruzach i musiałam na szybko kombinować inny..z pomocą przyszedł mi niedawno kupiony żakieto-sweterek i wiszące w szafie cygaretki, jeszcze z metką, kupione latem pod wpływem chwilowego impulsu, które naprawdę uratowały mi życie :) Ponieważ o obcasach nie było mowy założyłam lordsy i tak powstał zestaw w nieco paryskim stylu, kobiety-dandysa :)

Luxury can be broadly defined as possessing items that are desirable but not essential and expensive to procure. Luxury goods give great comfort to the user since the surroundings are expensive and high-quality. It is also defined as a non-essential item which an individual covets or desires but has no real use of. Luxury can also be defined as an activity that gives great pleasure and joy due to the fact that it occurs rarely. Over time, novelty and originality have become key as well as contributing factors in the development, promotion and growth of luxury fashion, designers, designs and goods.
The historical definition of luxurx is both dynamic as well as specific to culture, thus making it a difficult task to define. In society luxury can be loosely defined as a product or service that a consumer wants rather than needs. Despite everything global markets have seen an extraordinary growth in the luxury brand market. Branding of products as luxury has changed the perception and how consumers view this industry. A product or service can be deemed as luxury when the quality, design, craftsmanship, innovations are unique and of the highest standards. With regards to fashion design, it is an obvious assessment that the quality and craftsmanship of the design are seamlessly intertwined but creativity as well as innovations is two distinct and separate categories.
When it comes to speaking of creativity and innovation, they are often inter-changeable and also connected with describing the design and its process thus defining design and fashion in many instances. Manu analysts have not come to realize that there is very little or almost no distinction between both terms and they are slowly merging to mean one and the same thing. Innovation can be loosely defined as that which aims to transform and implement rather than explore or invent. In such circumstances it will be difficult to assess the level on contribution or change that designs will have on luxury goods. It has been argued on several occasions by expert analysts that technological innovations can be shown as the key factor in the development of luxury fashion and products. The co-relation between the designer and manufacturer is an important, imperative and integral part in developing luxury fashion goods to sustain themselves in an ever-changing fashion industry.
In developing and developed countries in the world, the luxury fashion industry is booming and every member of society who wishes to make a status statement will be flashing one if not many luxury goods at some point. It is a myth that recession has reduced purchasing power or patterns. In fact it with more gusto and reduction of prices on such good that has luxury aficionados shop until they drop.
The power of media; print and electronic has helped create awareness and a buzz towards the luxury fashion industry. Armed with more information the consumer is thoroughly educated on the nuances and cons of purchasing luxury fashion products. Luxury fashion has now entrenched its way into every country across the globe.
The importance of style and fashion in today's society is much underrated. The way that you look and dress is the first impression that people have of you. In order to give people a good first impression, you need to be dressed in a way that fits your style and does not look sloppy or messy, but one that does compliment you.
Personal style is a great way to express who you are and what you stand for. You can have fun with your own fashion statement but you should try and shy away from being too bold or it will make your outfit look like a costume.
You need to have a good appearance to show people that you invest in yourself. Your clothes should not be too tight because this gives a bad impression and it is very uncomfortable for you. Your clothes should not be too loose or baggy because that makes you look slovenly.
Your hair and makeup are also essential parts of your appearance. Your hair should be nicely combed and your make up should be subtle and not too loud. You need to put time and effort into how you dress and style yourself.
Fashion and style let people know if you are serious or not. The way that you dress on a job interview tells employers if you might make a good employee. If you are wearing a short skirt and a t-shirt then most employers would not think to hire you because they think that you are not serious about wanting the job that they are hiring for.
The importance of style and fashion in today's society is very important so always make sure you look your best whenever you go because you never know who is watching. You could end up reaping many rewards if you invest in yourself because you will look great and feel better about yourself. Put your best clothes on and put your best foot forward.
The fashion industry is a prolific, burgeoning and multi-billion dollar industry. Every individual in society is a conscious or unconscious victim to fashion. Knowingly or unknowingly, everyone markets fashion through their own personal statement. Fashion marketing is an integral part of the fashion industry and an important tool to effectively communicate the largeness of the industry to its target audiences. The task of creating a seamless process of getting runway apparel to various fashion retailers, distributor and stores; that in turn will ensure that it reaches the end consumer. Creating consumer awareness towards the brands in the minds of shoppers, making lucrative schemes to lure the fashion aficionados into the stores is in totality what fashion marketing is encompassed of.
Fashion plays an all encompassing and integral part in adding to and enhancing the vanity quotient in an individual. On the whole fashion lends its charm and adds splendor, magnificence and color in society. Thanks to the propagation of fashion, various and diverse cultural groups are able to express themselves without the fear of being ridiculed. Fashion trends and styles are changing and evolving every day just as is society and culture. All the fashionistas and fashion conscious individuals who can afford to keep up with the changes have a great time. Fashion is cyclical in its nature and like a full circle trends and styles are repeated year after year albeit with its fair share of changes and tweaks.
The role of fashion is to enhance, embellish and adorn an individual. Apart from performing its necessary role of providing clothing to the physical form of an individual, it also helps to bring to the forefront their unique individuality. Fashion has no language or barrier but in fact it helps to integrate people of various cultures, ethnicities and races by bringing to the forefront their ideals, values and views. Apart from which it underlines the state of mind as well as the overall consciousness of individuals and groups.
Media has played an ever emerging and evolving role in the promotion and propagation of fashion. The latest trends, styles and designs, whether it is to do with apparel, footwear, beauty, technology, jewelry and art are all given equal exposure in print and electronic media for the discerning audiences. Media and journalism are tools which grab the attention of the end consumer and lure them towards buying the products. Apart from which, through print and electronic media, consumer and interested audiences get the latest information on their fingertips through advertising, public relation activities and exercises as well as journalism.
Fashion marketers are always willing to impart more and relevant information to the consumers and find newer ways to execute their knowledge. Fashion marketing performs a dual task by not only being an informer to the consumers on the latest information but by always utilizing that knowledge to create a noise and buzz in order to promote and eventually sell the product. Advertisements, advertorials, plugs and gimmicks are devised by fashion marketers to ensure visibility and sales of the product.
The Grecian trend is being reflected in all different types of fashion and styles this year, including swimwear, footwear, evening dresses and casual wear.
In relation to swimwear, many brands have taken inspiration from the Grecian Gods and incorporated beautiful patterns and colours into their swimwear ranges. The golden and neutral tones of the bikini's and costumes beautifully complement sunkissed skin. A lot of swimwear also includes asymmetrical features, for example one shoulder pieces with ruched detailing reflecting the Greek elements, that are so popular.
However, one of the most obvious styles of clothing that has been greatly affected, are the dresses, whether they are summer dresses, evening dresses or prom dresses, the effects of the Grecian Goddesses is blatant. Many of the dresses are made from beautiful flowing fabrics, that cascade down the body highlighting your best body parts and hiding the ones you don't wish to see. The flowing, floaty essence of the Grecian dresses are complimentary on all body shapes, whether you have a boy figure, pear shaped, or hourglass, these dresses really suit everyone.
Modern influences have seen the dresses shorten in length, so that younger generations can wear them on nights out, many retailers have also made the Grecian dress more figure hugging, also reflecting modern day times.
In order to really substantiate yourself as a Grecian Goddess, footwear must be chosen carefully. Sandals are the obvious choice and come in a variety of styles, colours and options. Ranging from gladiator sandals to studded sandals, by adding these edgier footwear options it helps to excel your outfit and add an edgy fashionable vibe. If you want to wear a Grecian dress in the cooler months, then you can always opt for chunky boots and socks worn with a belt to clinch in the waist of the dress, this will add a funky, quirky vibe to your outfit and help the dress transition from Summer to Winter.
When it comes to Grecian accessories, there really is a huge variety. Some of the most inspiring pieces are bangles and bracelets, they really help give your outfit that statement feel. Many of the bangles available include stones and gems, that are often in hues of turquoise and jewel colours. The addition of a bangle or cuff to your outfit really helps to give an edgy feel and contrasts with the romantic essence of the dress. Whether its silver, bronze or gold it helps to add a radiant sophistication to your outfit.
The realm of fashion design, by its sheer glamour and grace, has always been exciting and intriguing. When we talk of fashion design, it implies a form of art that incorporates the nuances of creating clothes and accessories.
The history of fashion design can be traced back to the beginning of the19th century when the designs were the product of the dresses worn in the royal courts. Eventually, Charles Frederick Worth, the first fashion designer, set up his first fashion house in Paris. His designs greatly influenced the people and they labeled them as the designs of the "House Of Worth." As a result, a designer became synonymous with a particular brand.
Another important designer who made a significant contribution to the evolution of the fashion was Paul Poi Ret. He blended the classical style consisting of aesthetic dressing with Paris fashion. Other important designers of this age were Patou, Vionnet, Fortuny, Lanvin and Chanel.
Throughout the 20th century, Paris remained the world's fashion hub, with countries such as the US and Britain openly aping the French designs. The post World War era saw the emergence of other countries as the centers of fashion and Paris ceased to be the sole influential factor. The rising British fashion industry brought a new range of street fashion focusing mainly on the young consumers.
Later, American designers such as Calvin Klein And Ralph Lauren came to the fore with their sportswear and made it a style statement. Today, fashion designs can be categorized into two main categories. The haute couture is designed for individual customers. The other category is the ready-to-wear collection. While the former is based on certain themes and is more for creating a style statement, the latter is meant for the masses.
The mid-90s saw the emergence of a new breed of designers who redefined traditional concepts. They looked at fashion from a new angle, creating their own new concepts.
Thus, the world of fashion design has witnessed a steady evolution over the years and has been the by-product of the sincere efforts of many of the top designers.
The notion that trends in fashion take part in a phenomenon known as the trickle down effect has long been recognised by fashion pundits. A process of social emulation of society's upper echelons by the subordinates provides myriad incentives for perpetual and incessant changes in fashion through a sequence of novelty and imitation. Dior's 'New Look' of 1947 consisted of creations that were only affordable to a minority of affluent women of the time. Fashion was governed by haute-couture designers and presented to the masses to aspire toward. However, this traditional prospective has been vigorously challenged by many throughout the fashion world. Revisionist observations have introduced a paradoxical argument that fashion trends have, on numerous occasions, inadvertently emerged from the more obscure spheres of society onto the glamorous catwalks of high-fashion designers.
These styles can originate from a range of unorthodox sources, from leather-jacketed punks and dramatic Goths, the teddy boys of the 1950s, to ethnic minority cultures from all edges of the globe. Styles that emerge from the bottom of the social hierarchy are increasingly bubbling up to become the status of high fashion. There has been significant concern over the implications of this so-called bubble-up effect, such as the ambiguity between the notions of flattering imitation and outright exploitation of subcultures and minority groups. Democratization and globalisation of fashion has contributed to the abrasion of the authenticity and original identity of street-style culture. The inadvertent massification of maverick ideas undermines the 'street value' of the fashions for the very people who originally created them.
The underlying definition of subculture, with regards to anthropology and sociology, is a group of people who differentiates from the larger prevailing culture surrounding them. Members of a subculture have their own shared values and conventions, tending to oppose mainstream culture, for example in fashion and music tastes. Gelder proposed several principal characteristics that subcultures portrayed in general: negative relations to work and class, association with their own territory, living in non-domestic habitats, profligate sense of stylistic exaggeration, and stubborn refusal of massification. Hebdige emphasised that the opposition by subcultures to conform to standard societal values has been slated as a negative trait, where in fact the misunderstood groups are only attempting to find their own identity and meaning. The divergence away from social normalcy has unsurprisingly proliferated new ideas and styles, and this can be distinctly observed through the existence of fashion diversity. Ethnicity, race, class and gender can be physical distinctions of subcultures. Furthermore, qualities which determine a subculture may be aesthetic, linguistic, sexual, political, religious, or a mixture of these factors.
Sigmund Freud and his nephew Edward Bernays investigated the drivers of social control and the engineering of consent. Their psychological theories provide insight into the causes of deviation, by members of a subculture, from social norms. They highlighted the irrationality of human beings and discovered that by tapping into their deepest desires, it is possible to manipulate unconscious minds in order to manage society. Freud believed that stimulating the unconscious was crucial to creating desire, and therefore is conducive to economic progress and mass democracy. Bernays argued that individual freedom was unattainable because it would be "too dangerous to allow human beings to truly express themselves". Through various methods of advertising, a distinctive 'majority' can be created in society, where a person belonging to this group is perceived to be normal, conventional and conformist. By using techniques to satisfy people's inner desires, the rise of widespread consumerism plays a part in the organized manipulation of the masses. However, through the unleashing of certain uncontrolled aggressive instincts, occasional irrationality emerged in groups, and this repudiation of the banalities of ordinary life is believed to be a key factor in the generation of subcultures.
The expansion of youth styles from subcultures into the fashion market is a real network or infrastructure of new kinds of commercial and economic institutions. The creation of new and startling styles will be inextricably linked to a process of production and publicity inevitably leading to the diffusion and spread of the subversive subculture trends. For example, both mod and punk innovations have become incorporated into high and mainstream fashion after the initial low-key emergence of such styles. The complexities of society perpetuate continuous change in style and taste, with different classes or groups prevailing during certain periods of time. To deal with the question of which is the most influential source of fashion, it is necessary to consider distribution of power. It is not the same for all classes to have access to the means by which ideas are disseminated in our society, principally the mass media. In history, the elites have had greater power to prescribe meaning and dictate what is to be defined as normality.
Trickling down to shape the views of the substantial passive parts of the population, designers from high places were able to set trends that diffused from the upper to lower spectrum of society. Subcultures, it was suggested, go against nature and are subject to abhorrence and disapproval by followers of mainstream trends. Regrettably, criminal gangs, homeless subcultures and reckless skateboarders, among other 'negative' portrayals of subcultures have been accused of dragging down the image of other 'positive' subcultures which demonstrate creativity and inspiration. There is an unstable relationship between socialising and de-socialishng forces. Nevertheless, German philosopher Kant observed that actual social life should and always will consist of in some way its own opposite asocial life, which he described as "unsociable sociality".
Without doubt, fashion exhibits a dichotomy of conformity and differentiation, with contradictory groups aspiring to fit in and stand out from a crowd. Previously, the pace of change that fashion went through has spawned social emulation, a phenomenon whereby subordinate groups follow a process of imitation of the fashion tastes adopted by the upper echelons of society. Veblen, a Norwegian-American sociologist and economist, criticized in detail the rise of consumerism, especially the notion of conspicuous consumption, initiated by people of high status. Another influential sociologist Georg Simmel, classified two basic human instincts - the impetus to imitate one's neighbours, and conversely, the individualistic behaviour of distinguishing oneself.
Simmel indicated the tendency towards social equalization with the desire for individual differentiation and change. Indeed, to elucidate Simmel's theory of distinction versus imitation, the distinctiveness of subcultures in the early stages of a set fashion assures for its destruction as the fashion spreads. An idea or a custom has its optimal innovative intensity when it is constrained to a small clandestine group. After the original symbolic value of the idea has been exploited by commercialisation and accepted as a part of mass culture, the balance will have a tendency to tip towards imitation over distinction. An example of the imitation of a distinctive subculture is the evolution of blue jeans, which originating from humble American cowboys and gold-miners, demonstrate a bubble-up effect of a subculture. On a larger scale, it can be said that Western style dressing 'bubbled-up' from 19th Century Quaker's attire, rather than 'trickling down' from the styles of Court aristocracy.
Simmel describes fashion as a process by which the society consolidates itself by reintegrating what disrupts it. The existence of fashion requires that some members of society must be perceived as superior or inferior. From economist Harvey Leibenstein's perspective, fashion is a market constituted of 'snobs'. The phenomenon of 'snob-demand' depicts consumers as snobs who will stop buying a product when the price drops too much. The trickle down effect has been related to a 'band-wagon effect' where the turnovers of a product are particularly high as a result of imitation. Every economic choice is bound not only to the pure computational rationality of individuals, but is influenced by irrational factors, such social imitation, contrary to what Simmel calls the 'need for distinction'. However, a 'reverse bandwagon effect' acts as an opposing force when a snobbish consumer stops buying a product because too many others are buying it as well. The resultant force depends on the relative intensity of the two forces.
Subcultures have often endured a less than agreeable relationship with the mainstream as a result of exploitation and cultural appropriation. This often leads to the demise or evolution of a particular subculture once the originally novel ideas have been commercially popularised to an extent where the ideologies of the subculture have lost their fundamental connotations. The insatiable commercial hunger for new trends instigated the counterfeiting of subculture fashion, unjustifiably used on the sophisticated catwalks in fashion dictatorships of Paris, Milan and New York. It is not purely sartorial fashion but also music subcultures that are particularly vulnerable to the massification process. Certain types of music like jazz, punk, hip hop and rave were only listened to by minority groups at the initial stages of its history.
Events in history have had substantial impacts on the rise, development and evolution of subcultures. The First World War had an impact on men's hairstyles as lice and fleas were ubiquitous in wartime trenches. Those with shaved heads were presumed to have served at the Front while those with long hair were branded cowards, deserters, and pacifists. During the 1920s, standard social etiquettes were discarded by certain youth subcultures, as drink, drugs and jazz infiltrated America, intensified by the alcohol prohibition of the time. A crime subculture emerged as smugglers discovered profit opportunities with Mexican and Cuban drug plantations. The Great Depression of the late 20s in North America caused pervasive poverty and unemployment. Consequently, a significant number of adolescents discovered identity and expression through urban youth gangs, such as the 'dead end kids'.
Existentialists like Camus and Sartre also played a significant part in influencing the subcultures of the 1950s and 60s. Emphasis on freedom of the individual created a version of existential bohemianism resembling the beat generation. This subculture represented a version of bohemian hedonism; McClure declares that "non-conformity and spontaneous creativity were crucial". In literature, Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath" depicted the economic hardship of these times. Initially burned and banned to American citizens, condemned as communist propaganda, this book was given the Nobel Prize for literature in 1962. It only took a few decades for the previously socially unacceptable book to diffuse into mainstream culture.
The popularisation of folk and cowboy songs led to their unique underlying patterns being mixed with elements of jazz, blues and soul, creating a new subculture of western swing. Technological progress facilitated "instantaneous mass media creating large subcultures from the ideas of a range of smaller subcultures". Accordingly, a bubble-up effect can be seen where, through a process of innovation and diffusion, original ideas can spread into mass culture.
The process of integration has a potential to lead to the polarisation of warring subcultures, contributing to social disorganization. Shaw and Mckay assessed that although their data is not sufficient to determine "the extent to which membership in delinquent gangs produces delinquency", membership is probably a contributing factor. They use the term 'differential social organisation' to depict how subculture formation is a result of broader economic and demographic forces that undermine conventional local institutions of control.
The institution of the family is weakendd by these forces, and as a result, alternatives to the traditional family have arisen as various subcultures. Ethan Watters elucidated this social trend in his book defining urban tribes as "groups of never-married's between the ages of 25 and 45 who gather in common-interest groups and enjoy an urban lifestyle". Analysis of the long term perspective of street trends reveal that youth trends bubble-up every five to ten years, and that individualism, anarchy and self-realization, are universal in these trends.
In the process of bubbling up, there are two important concepts to consider, that of 'diffusion' and 'defusion'. Fashion diffusion focuses on the individual and the crowd, particularly in this case the spreading of fashion in a systematic way from small scale to large scale institutions. It highlights the idea that fashion innovation and creativity drawn from subcultures are integrated into mass culture. In the process, non-conformist fashion may be subject to defusion, a diluting of the fundamental intrinsic meaning of the original subculture. The commercialisation of fashion is especially central to the danger of decontextualisation of trend origins. For example, the wearing of ripped jeans, an accepted form of attire nowadays, does not necessarily relate to the image of 'hippies' in modern times. The concept of identity and its modifications and transformations after a period of time should be carefully considered.
Analysis of street style is another fundamental aspect in determining the extent of a bubble-up effect in fashion. It is an idea that opposes the view that high fashion has given way to popular culture. Polhemus proposed that "styles which start life on the street corner have a way of ending up on the backs of top models on the world's most prestigious fashion catwalks". Prior to this new train of thought, the predominant view was that new looks began with couture and 'trickle down' to the mass market mainline fashion industry. Polhemus suggested that the evidence he found gave insight to a chain of events; initially genuine street innovation appears, followed by the featuring in mass media, such as magazines or television programmes, of street kids. In time, the ritzy version of the original idea makes an appearance, as a part of a top designer's collection.
Polhemus identified two basic street-styles involving dressing up or dressing down. Those from a relatively affluent sector of society, such as the Beatniks and Hippies developed a penchant for the latter, preferring to descend down the socio-economic ladder in the interest of authenticity. Nowadays, the variety of attire seen on streets and nightclubs show that culture is no longer only a prerogative of the upper class. Although, the creatively democratic society that we progress towards optimizes fashion innovation, cynics of the bubble-up effect, such as Johnny Stuart, condemned in his book on rockers, "the fancy fashionable versions of the Perfecto which you see all over the place, dilute the significance, taking away its original magic, castrating it".
Social crises of the 1950s and 1970s brought about new ideological constructions in response to the worsening economy, scarcity of jobs, loss of community, and the failure of consumerism to satisfy real needs. Racism became a solution to the problems of working-class life. Such periods of social turmoil resulted in fashion defusion, with many subcultures becoming increasingly detached from their foundation symbolisms. The connotations of the attire of the teddy boys during the 1970s bore little resemblance to the style of 1956. The original narcissistic upper-class style was somewhat irrevocably lost in a wave of 'second generation teds' that preferred fidelity to the classic 'bad-boy' stereotypes. The concept of specificity, subcultures responding to circumstances at distinctive moments in history, is depicted as vital to the study of subcultures.
Therefore the resultant mass-consumed item may draw distance from the emblem of the original subculture, attainable to all who can afford it. The loss of identity may prove to be a serious problem as subcultures may feel exploited, estranged and meaningless without a sense of belonging. Subcultures established a sense of community to certain individuals during a new post-war age that witnessed the deterioration of traditional social groupings. Polhemus claims that subcultures like Teddy Boys, Mods, Rockers, Skinheads, Rockabillies, Hipsters, Surfers, Hippies, Rastafarians, Headbangers, Goths, etc, as "social phenomenon style tribes cannot be dismissed as something transitory". Known as the Kogal phenomenon, a subculture emerged where groups of young girls between the ages of 15 and 18 appeared on the streets of Tokyo with long dyed-brown or bleached-blond hair, tanned skin, heavy makeup, brightly coloured miniskirts or short pants that flare out at the bottom, and high platform boots.
'Field' has become more appropriate in the analysis of fashion changes. People engaged in similar lifestyles with intrinsically similar cultural capital, i.e. nationality, profession, family and friends form group identities interacting with others in the same 'field'. This has been an important contributing factor to the birth of subcultures.The anachronistic belief that class was a determinant of fashion has reduced significantly, as confirmed by Bauman, who proposed the idea of 'liquid society', where fashion exists in a more flexible and malleable state.
A particular phenomenon of recent times, subject to both a trickle-down and a bubble-up effect of varying degrees, is the democratization and globalization of fashion. There has been an emergence of 'prêt-a-porter' invented by John Claude Weill in 1949. This development has increased the speed and diffusion of fashion trends across the world, which amplified the culture of fast fashion, massification and global standardisation. Standardised factory-made prêt-a-porter clothes, of which 'wearability' is crucial, sometimes descend from places of high fashion, for example inspired from couture. Designers such as Poiret, Dior and Lacroix produce a ready-to-wear line alongside their haute couture collection to take advantage of a wider market. Nevertheless, its mass-produced industrial nature detracts away from the exclusivity of traditional couture.
By 1930, couturiers like Schiaparelli, Delauney, and Patou began to design their own ready-to-wear boutiques, understanding the new emerging system of fashion whereby the moment that people stop copying you, it means that you are no longer any good. The democratization of couture disallowed it to sustain its elitist nature and therefore haute couture was beginning to accept that fashion was about emulation. Nevertheless, attire was not entirely uniform and equalised. Subtle nuances continued to mark social distinctions but mitigated the upper class penchant for conspicuous consumption.
Democratising fashion came hand in hand with a 'disunification' of feminine attire, which varied more in form and became less homogeneous. The fundamental attraction of making profit inspired innovation in styles and a perpetual search for lower costs through efficient industrial manufacturing. Institutions were evolving to an extent that the pretentious elitist sectors diminished in favour of universal mass production. The end of the Second World War brought about increased demand for fashion, encouraged by films and magazines of the time and the take off of global advertising campaigns, i.e. Levi's, Rodier, Benetton, Naf-Naf, etc, highlighting the need for high standards of living, well-being and hedonistic mass culture. It is the globalisation and rapidity of fashion movements, as Kawamura amply discussed, that underline the fact that "fast-changing tastes of consumers are matched only by the cleverness of the department store that identifies trendsetters among young consumers and feeds their knowledge into the production cycle".
It is impossible to conduct discourse in fashion without associating it with change, unpredictability and a high degree of uncertainty. It is very difficult to distinguish which goods will be adorned by the mass population and which trends will be instantaneously rejected. In general, industries need economic capital and political solidarity to function but these institutions are particularly difficult to uphold in the aesthetic industry. A paradox exists in that while on a superficial level everyone associates fashion with change, the underlying forces value stability. They argue that it is not possible to speak of one single fashion, but rather of different fashions existing at the same time. This is especially the case for an intrinsically fast-paced, competitive and fragmented industry. A bubble-up effect is inherent to a globalised fashion world, and the upward flow of fashion stemming from various subcultures contributes abundantly to this process.

Magazines such as Vogue began to feature more American designers in their features and stories.
In the year 1903 a New York based shop held the country's first ever fashion show to lure middle-call socio economic groups into the store.

Peer pressure among teen females.

The Teenage Years represent the transition period into adulthood. Teens start to develop their independence and unique opinions about life's issues. The fashion trend has changed quite a bit from the days when Indians set up tents in the United States of America. When it comes to shopping, teens like to choose their own clothes and fashions at this time of their life. Sometimes teens and parents agree which clothes to purchase, sometimes they disagree.
Teenage years may be called "Acne Years". These years can turn into nightmares which many times continue into adulthood. Many products are available without bringing the desired results. We have the products that will eliminate these nightmares.
Helpful in developing identity
Some teen fashion statements are going to be crazy but they might be bearable. If you come upon something that actually covers them, make sure you give them a good eye roll. That might encourage them to wear that style. You might think it looks funny, but at least they are covered. That should be your main concern. You can lay down the law when you see teen fashion that seems to be too revealing, but you may be encouraging them in that direction.
Though teen fashion comes and goes and you can expect the main purpose of these fashions is to make sure they dress nothing like their parents. Teens have a strong need to set their own style, and figure out what their own identity is aside from their parents. That's a perfectly normal part of growing up, and if a parent does not roll their eyes just a little when the see teen fashions, those teens are going to be confused and they may try something else. That might be a good thing to keep in mind.
Teens have a greater selection of clothes than ever. From running pants and bottoms and outerwear, juniors styles, and jeans, teen clothing and active wear is a great way to live your youth.
Fashion can be connected almost with every part of our life. As it comes to the matter of way we look it sometimes means the same as being accepted by society or just a specific group of people. We are not aware of wearing the same cloths as other people not only to look good for ourselves but more to gain others people love. Is it ok?

The same reasons that make fashion something good in our life make it something that may lead to tearing society apart.

"Don't judge the book by its cover" we would want to add here. If the only way of evaluating people is to judge them by their look and trendy cloths the fashion is misunderstanding. But if it is just looking good and fashion is our hobby we should go for it!

The clothing fashion industry has always taken pride in their ability to produce the trendiest look for the modern-day woman and bringing back previously fashionable retro skirts into the scheme of things that can be tricky even if they do have that vintage chic look about them. Clothing designers have always prided themselves in being able to produce designs that look unique and chic but at the same time comfortable and practical, which probably explains why they do tend to revamp previously successful trends.
Retro skirts are one of the most commonly used clothing basics that a stitch here, a tuck there, and an accessory or two would make it look like a very new design concept. Some designers are truly gifted that one would hardly recognize the basic design material unless they closely scrutinize the design itself.
The truth of the matter is that fashion is just a cycle of designs that gets a new "look" or revamp. One doesn't even have to spend their budget on the brand new skirt design. Look closely, isn't that the same retro skirt that you purchased last year but with a different accessory. There is a distinct possibility that you just need to shop in your closet (or an older female relative's closet for that matter) to achieve the same design that you just saw on the catwalk or fashion magazine.
The first step is to look for retro skirts that may just be hanging in the closet. Try to compare it with the one that you saw in the fashion magazine. It may not be the same color or cut but if it is undamaged during storage and looked good on you when you bought it then you have half your work, and expense budget, cut out for you.
The second step would be to compare the current style and the style of the retro skirts that you have on-hand. If you are handy with a needle and a thread then you can easily make the necessary changes to make it trendy. You might need to sew in a couple of accessories to achieve the look that you want. You can visit a craft shop or even go online to find the right accessory that you are looking for. If you are not that handy with the thread and needle, it is highly advisable that you visit a seamstress so you can have your skirt fitted and decorated to your liking. Bring along a photo of the design that you want the seamstress to copy to avoid confusion to the design that you want to achieve.
Matching the skirt with a suitable top doesn't even have to be a problem since skirts are easily paired with almost anything to achieve a feminine look. You can even pair up your newest blouse, sleeved or sleeveless, with your skirt even if the skirt style is not in keeping with the latest fashion trend. Basically, retro skirts have a style on its own that even the most fashion conscious female can wear it regardless of the season or the occasion.
Ehhh...miał być zupełnie inny set, zdjęcia w pięknym parku itd... Niestety dzisiaj miałam mały wypadek i przez najbliższe dni muszę stawiać na dużą swobodę stroju. Zapewne będziecie zadawać pytania co się stało, więc w skrócie opowiem: zemdlałam i spadłam ze schodów, ot co się stało. Sama nie wiem jaka była przyczyna, ale zapewne czeka mnie wizyta u lekarza :( W każdym bądź razie nie martwcie się, już czuję się dobrze, jedyne co mi pozostało po upadku to dwa zdarte kolana i jeden piszczel + zniszczone leginsy z ćwiekami, które już nie doczekają się premiery na blogu :/ ale to mały kłopot w porównaniu z moim ciągłym myśleniem skąd ta utrata przytomności się wzięła... :( Dzisiejszy set jest najlepszym przykładem tego, że pomimo przeciwności losu można wyglądać dobrze, czuć się komfortowo i funkcjonować w miarę normalnie :) Marynarkę wyszperałam z dna szafy, leżała zapomniana, jednak na dziś przydała się idealnie :) Do tego luźna bluzka z ćwiekami (których nie widać, ale gwarantuję, że są ;) ) oraz złote dresy którym nie mogłam się oprzeć :) Całości dopełniły wygodne conversy, które może kolorem niektórych będą razić, ale według mnie świetnie ożywiają ten set :) Na dzisiaj to tyle, mam nadzieję, że w ciągu kilku dni wrócę do formy!
