Fashion in Media – The Spectacle


I don’t think the spectacle is something that can actually be defined as one specific thing. The definition of this concept depends on who is analyzing it. I believe that in “our time”, fashion is best defined through the use of images. The medium in which we most often see these images is through social media. We can explore every aspect of the fashion industry through the media and we can do this within moments. Experiencing the world fashion is at our finger tips 24/7. A great example of this is Olivia Culpo, a former Miss Universe, model, and style guru. She is constantly traveling the world, from NY fashion week to Paris Fashion Week. It is fun to keep up with her and the trends/fashions she is wearing depending on where she is in the world!
