Creativity and Fashion

Just imagine...If it weren't for the creativity of fashion designers, perhaps we'd still be using togas or banana leafs to cover our bodies? As the bi-annual New York Fashion Week takes place, I'm reminded of this.

As Julie of Cest Vogue says in this post, Skilled Fashion Designers Succeed in the Fashion Industry:
"Fashion designers believe that the costumes are much more than a shield of protection from elements. They enhance comfortless, confidence and self-esteem. Although most believe that fashion is purely superficial, designers feel that the appearance of a person can have profound effects on the personality and to the world at large..."
We often take fashion designers for granted - their creativity offers us fashion from different perspectives. As a lover of fashion, I am grateful for the myriad of choices I have when it comes to dressing myself.

My naked body is a blank canvas in the morning. The pieces of clothing are like layers of paint used to create a unique expression of who I am. That's fashion. That's art.

And speaking of fashion and art, Christian Siriano is a prime example of an artistic fashion designer. His Spring 2010 collection truly inspires me. Check out a clip of the show below...
