Rise of the non-fashion statement

Fashion is finding a point to counter-balance the dominance of the overtly fashion-conscious

- +

In the modern world, there exists a group of people - the so-called "circle of fashion".

Of course this is incomprehensible to those living outside that bubble - those who have other priorities aside from names and the premium prices used to create value in clothes. These people's "real" life of waking up, venturing into the traffic to get to work, and going back home again - the loop of everyday life - comes with more pressing necessity and pairing a suit colour with a new necktie, or thinking of new details of shoes that won't be on shelves for the next six months, are simply irrelevant.
