“The Spectacle”

In the society we live in today the “spectacle” is something different for every person.  It is a representation of experiences.  As we talked about in class the spectacle can sometimes differ according to whether we experience it directly or at a distance.  When speaking of fashion we a lot of times experience things at a distance.  For example if you want to watch a runway show in paris we can experience it by watching it on a screen.  We experience fashion at a distance every day through social media.  Fashion bloggers, peoples whose jobs are too post fashion trends, post something every day and we see it through our screens whether it be a phone or computer and because they post it we follow the trend and go out and buy it.  Sometimes it raises the question is something a trend just because a celebrity or blogger wears it?
