Is fashion the copying of styles of celebrities and upper class?Fashion is basically copying of dress, manners and gadgets of celebrities and big people by the middle class or general public.
'I should do it because they (celebrities and big people) do it or I should have it because they have it' is the philosophy of these copycats.
In the rage of fashion people even forget not to wear shabby or torn dresses otherwise a few decades ago who could imagine to wear torn jeans.The misery is if you do not follow the present fashion trends you are looked down upon by those who are following the trend as such people feel that they look more educated and modern.
In the race of being one-up in the world of fashion people are embracing everything good or bad.
One interesting thing is that if a small or poor guy does something it is never copied as a fashionable thing.
I wish if following traffic rules, adhering to discipline, not breaking queues etc were also considered fashionable then we would not require awareness program for these rules and ettiquettes.
