What is Fashion?
Fashion is a popular gorgeous expression. Fashion is in clothes, footwear, accessories, makeup, hairstyles, and lifestyle. Nowadays, people take fashion as a serious matter. Fashion is a thing that pervades every phase of life. The concept of fashion begins in 1826. Charles Frederick was the first fashion designer in the world and established the first-ever fashion boutique in Paris. He was very popular. Due to this, artists were hired by design houses. Their job was to develop ingenious designs. The fashions actually start spreading from Paris. In the 20th century, new changes in the fashion industry took place. Paris created new designs and then, spread them to other counties. Now a sense of fashion awareness is so strong. Now people choose the clothes of their own choice, according to their taste. New trends were created instead of following existing trends. These days, fashion changes almost weekly.
As Bill Cunningham said, “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”
The trend of makeup was invented 12,000 years ago by Egyptians. But the actual makeup company was developed in the US in the 1910s by Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, and Max factor. Makeup is used to enhance one’s appearance. Romans and Egyptians took great interest in their appearance and spend a lot of money and time on fashion. Makeup is the most important thing in girl’s shopping now. Makeup including eyeshadows, lipsticks, eyeliner, mascara, brow pencils, and much more. Fashion can also be called self-care.
