What’s your definition of fashion?
Fashion is something that allows a person to look their best you feel your absolutely best and by this you hold your head up and higher and have pride in yourself. It is a form of free speech since people can recognize your personality just by the type of clothes you wear. It’s a mirror of sorts in the society.
