What is it about fashion that makes people so obsessed? It’s like a virus that has infected every other culture and every other industry.
Fashion is as much a part of our culture as the food we eat, and the clothes they wear, and the way they talk. It’s not just about the clothes people wear, because they’re pretty much the most visible part of any fashion show (except for perhaps the Oscars, that is). Fashion is a form of communication. It’s like a virus that infects everything.
This is a great idea. Fashion is such a beautiful thing. It can make you feel so happy or sad, and make you look and feel like someone you want to be. If you look at the fashion industry it seems that no matter what you wear, you always appear to be the new kid on the block. If you look to other cultures the people of your own culture are the new cool kids on the block.
The problem with this entire concept, is that it can be so confusing. In fact, the only thing that seems to really stand up to the challenge of this idea is the use of fashion to communicate something other than your own self. If you are trying to communicate how you feel about a certain person, you don’t just show them a picture of a dress and tell them which one you like.
So the idea of fashion as a tool of communication is not at all new. I have to admit that when I was in high school, I had a copy of the book, Fashion Design for Beginners. The book came out in the mid 90s, and was published by a Japanese company called, I think they were called, C.f.f.f. Fashion Design. I think the book was published in Japan, but that was the only place I could find it in English.
I think the book was published in the US, and the title was just too long. But I think it was written by a Japanese person. Of course I could be wrong, I don’t know a lot about Japanese publishing.
The book was published in the late 90s / early 2000s, which is right around the time I went to high school. The book was a reprint of a book from the late 60s or early 70s. The book was published by a Japanese company called, I think they were called, C.f.f.f. Fashion Design. I think they were published in Japan, but that was the only place I could find it in English.
The book seems to have been a sort of Japanese fashion bible. I’m not sure if it was intended to be a fashion guide or just a fashion magazine, but I am surprised that it didn’t sell better than it did. Probably because it was so obscure. There are even some drawings of model after model, and they all look like they’ve been stuck in a drawer for a few years.
Well, I read a few of these books and thought, “I could really do this.” I could draw the models. I could maybe make the clothes too. And I could do the whole book in one evening… maybe I’d have a better chance of selling it.
I am actually quite excited to see how the book turns out. It has a couple of illustrations by me. I think the main reason why it sold better is that it was too obscure. People who were looking for a fashion book would have to buy a lot of books just to find the main characters. It seems like a good idea, but I’m not sure it really is.
