Through my studies, observations and a life spent in clothes, I am beginning to realize the extent of which fashion has played a crucial role in the development of cultural standards for beauty. The standards we compare ourselves to and strive to uphold are based upon the definitions accepted by the greater society.
BUT WHAT IS BEAUTY.
Is there a universal standard for the ideal?
Can it be identified within differing cultures?
What defines beauty in art... in design?
In this regard, is it different–does the definition change when discussing one or the other?
How was beauty defined throughout history?
How is beauty defined now?
People typically define their "beauty" based upon their physical appearance and therefore develop their sense of identity in their physical appearance and outward adornment.
YET, THESE THINGS OR OUR SHAPES DO NOT MAKE US WHO WE ARE.
People are accepting of things that are beautiful, so how can we communicate this message clearly? We have to do it beautifully.
