androgyny

Here is the first of a four part series appropriately titled "Clothes I want but probably can't afford". Wait, strike "probably". While runway photos seem to defy reality, we self-indulgent consumers can't help but to be in awe of the artistic dramatization of some clothes on some bones and the glamourization of the fashion world. Though never deeply steeped within, I've gathered my own bias against the fashion world through personal experiences. To a certain extent, the fashion industry is a vapid pocket of socio-economical delusion. Or maybe that's just everyone who's involved in the PR end (I'm hinting at my previous experience).On the other hand,fashion is undoubtedly one of the farthest reaching artforms. Like food and literature and music and etc. etc., fashion is an exemplary reference for history and anthropology, whethor or not its creators want it to be.You can't refer to communism without crediting the social politics surrounding clothing styles and symbolic colors. You can't completely understand Japanese culture without peeling through the layers of fashion semiotics and its relevance to experiential and communicational cultural osmosis. So don't hate yourself for enjoying a good shop or two. Fashion is relevant. Trends are relevant. But of course, you have to know where to draw the line.

Anyway, rant over, onto my pics for the top four androgynous pices. :
