Fashion as Art

People have to wear clothes everyday.  Some of us just throw on the first thing we see ( not particular about what we wear as long as most people are wearing it).  Others take great care in what they wear, probably spending a couple of hours the night before to mix and match to come up with the perfect outfit, perfect accessories, perfect hair.

There are those who wear clothes to make a statement:  "This is who I am"; "This is what I want to be"; "Look at me; don't I look different?"  (lol)

There are artistic clothes that can be worn and those that most people wouldn't wear, though they're beautiful and expertly made.  I admire greatly the designers who put together complex garments.  As someone told me years ago, designing and making patterns for clothing is almost like engineering.  I say the creative and artistic designers are fashion engineers.
