After watching Caitlyn, Carly, Christiana and Christina’s fashion moments videos, I noticed some similarities, but mostly differences in the way that we discovered when fashion began to matter in each of our lives. For the most part we had all had our “realizations”, if you will, around the same age. A couple of girls were younger but i noticed that 6th grade-ish, was when this idea of “fashion” and what’s “fashionable” became prominent in our lives. Although we were all around the same age, we all came to this understanding in very different ways. For example, Christiana wanted to have her own fashion, separate from her twin sister; and Carly learned and appreciated diverse fashion through the eyes of different cultures- which i found was very fascinating. I think that for the most part, all five of us and probably the majority of the class, realized fashion mattered when we were starting to become individuals. What you wear on your body is a portrayal of who you are and an accessory to your personality and self. There is a point in our lives where we want to be known for who we are, and one way of doing that is through fashion and clothing.
