I think that it is important in some cases. People, who do not look for fashion, is not interested in what is happening in the world. Fashion is one branch of art, isn't it?

The best way of having a best look is wearing clothes which is suitable to you. Of course, it shouldn't be the main part of your life, but it anyway.

fashion shows creativity. Fashion helps you ignite that spark inside of you. It helps you see who you are. So yes, fashion is important

Yes, you are quite right. Fashion is an essential instrument for showing the world who we really are, how beautiful we are both outside and inside, how we can choose smart and stylish clothes from a heap of rags, how we can deliver ourselves. Thereby I agree with your point of view that fashion is important.

It's impossible to say that fashion is not important. It's important anyway because everyone follows fashion somehow. Fashion is everywhere. It concerns not only clothes, but the way we do some things, the way we behave and so on. To my mind it's impossible not to follow fashion because everything has already been done by someone and considered fashionable someday. So, it's impossible to say that fashion is not important. Fashion is everywhere, no matter what do you think about it.

I completely agree with you and want to add that fashion has been an important part of people's lives since the humankind occurred. Ancent people had their specific fashion and they followed it, the same situation was in Medieval Ages and so on. People always follow fashion to less or more extent and it doesnt matter either it is important or not, it has existed, it is existing and will exist......

i think that fashion is important. do not you think, that knowing what is happening in the world, follow the trends are the bad things?! i think, no, because it doesn`t mean that you should wear something, which not suits u, but it is fashionable. i want to say that you should wear clothes, which suits you, according to the fashion. but if person, is not interested in fashion, it is his choice.

Fashion is something that most countries take very seriously, especially women but many men as well. The ways in which people have behaved and dressed has changed throughout history. I believe that fashion is very important because it is a great way of self expression. Also it is important to culture, religion. In addition, fashion is a large part of our economy because how much do we spend on fads? A LOT

I would like to add that fashion is important, because it is a source of great opportunities. It gives people a chance to build career and wake up famous because of their belonging to fashion industry. A lot of talented and creative fashion bloggers became Internet stars by expressing their attitudes to fashion trends in their electronic diaries. For example, fashion blog called Dream Girls. I would like to highlight that thanks to fashion industry ordinary people without any pull and protection have chances to become successful.

Moreover, fashion may have a positive impact on people's lives. Nowadays it became fashionable to maintain healthy life style, to give up smoking, to stop using drugs and drinking alcohol. For instance, fashion inspires teenagers to go in for sports by examples of fashion icons who play football, tennis or golf.

I do not agree with you, that "It gives people a chance to build career and wake up famous because of their belonging to fashion industry", to buid career, be famous, bacame a star, it all depends on you, actually form your mind. How you will behave in order to achieve that what you want. But only by following the fashion, to be fashionable and glamorous, you will not achieve much. I would like to suggest, first of all to wear whatever is comfortable. I don't usually care about name brands or anything like that. I just go with what looks best on me and, yeah, however it's got to be cool.

I see what you mean that to build career we need to be strong and work hard. But I do not say that if a person follows fashion, he or she will particularly "build career, become famous, become a star". By saying that fashion "gives people a chance to build career", I do not mean that fashion is the only requirement of becoming successful. Because that is not true.

I say that people may become successful, famous or rich "because of their belonging to fashion industry". I am sure that it is possible. Moreover, there are a lot of such examples. For instance, Libby Banks in her article "Watch: A girl called Bip" published in The Huffington Post on the 31st of October in the year 2011 tells the story of Bip Ling who became a star, started to work with Vogue and other respectable fashion magazines, because of her "belonging to fashion industry". Of course, she did not work hard, she would not achieve it, but she would achieve it without fashion industry too.

There are a lot of pros and cons of it, even i can`t finally decide is it important or not. Firstly, it`s really nice when person look after themselves, well-dressed, neat, clean, he lives in step with fashion world. He wants to know more and more, he wants to live. Secondly, not everyone can afford to dress fashionably, he would envy, feel slighted. So now, for young generation would difficult to live without fashion. I think it more important, rather than less...

Yes; To the weak, incompetent, timid, and the undaring. Everyone else, fashion is nothing more than propaganda put forth by mega corporations in their attempt to swindle you out of your money.

Fashion is important in this world, how you represent yourself is crucial. First impressions are important. For example, how would your new-colleague-to-be will react when you come into an office meeting using a crop tee and shorts? I think they'll think about having you in their company a thousand times. And it shows personality, but express it in an appropriate way.

Fashion is not a new thing in the world as it is found every where. Fashion changed from time to time but it has shown its existence in all ages. You can express your personality through fashion and you can express others that how you feel about yourselves. If I am speaking for myself, if I am wearing tight fitting or short clothes, I can never feel good about myself.

Fashion is one of the most valuable forms of self expression available to us as people. It is art worn every day, it can reflect our moods, our personality. Fashion is wearable art. It provides one of the most exciting opportunities for modern artists. It also provides a good lesson in life - always move forward - Fashion is always about the future. What am I going to wear today? Fashion gets people talking and interested in defining themselves. I am a writer and I just published a book based on fashion magazines - it is called THE FASHION DIARIES: DRESS CODE. Find it on AMAZON

It seems obvious to me that fashion is important.

First of all, fashion is art. For example, when designers are developing their collections of clothing, they work hard and seek inspiration as real painters. So, designers become artists.

Secondly, fashion is profitable business. A lot of people buy clothes for double or even triple price just because it was made by popular brand like Prada or Dior.

Finally, fashion is a whole industry. Fashion provides models, designers, photographers, fashion magazines editors and journalists with workplaces and income.

Important for what purpose? This might have an effect on a person’s position to your question.

If you are seeking a general answer, then I say no. The idea that fashion is important is a result of the current time in which a person's societal status is based on how much material wealth they have and how they look by outward appearance. The person with the most stuff or most expensive stuff is viewed as the most important or successful in life which most of the time has no measure on the individual's character. The person who is most beautiful or sexy is also a factor in determining a person’s societal status, which in most cases is also not an accurate measure of one’s character.

As the old adage goes: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

first of all... beauty must be in our eyes,heart and soul... fashion just acts as catalyst not basis of personality and i must say fashion is what you wear to make you best.. even some girls look more pretty in veils they are so adorable that they look more attractive then girl in simple clothes or skinny... then making fashion ur life style or necessity is totally a foolishness because if fashion is to wear caprese(brand of bags) now a days then more percentage of society hadnt been following girls wearing veil... saying... that chasing them is like a struggle to unlock a close gadget ... fashion doesnt express ur personality.. it just show ur hidden crazes for thing or brands.. so in short being simple in life is just best like being single in teens ^_^

I see what you mean, and that is a good point. Also I would like to add, that we should try not to be a slave to corporate logos and we should just know what we like and dress the way we prefer. For example, if I see something that is in fashion and I like I'll wear it and if I see something that isn't in fashion, or is in fashion but I don't like it, I won't wear it.

Fashion is not so important to me, but I do sometimes like to put an effort into how I look and into my appearance. I think that fashion expresses who you are and it can differentiate you from others but however on the other hand, people can judge you on fashion and your appearance and this is not a good thing. You should look further than the appearance.

Fashion isn't important because it's constantly changing and rehashing all of the things that have already been done. It's really quite superficial and boring. Aside from that, people that buy themselves a name or suck their way to the top just steal street fashion and make money off of poor people that are original.

Why should fashion set a standers of women and men? Should celebrities say that you have to look a certain way to fit in. In our society people are judged on what brand they have on or on how much they spend on cloths. Yes people should look good but in there own way. So no fashion is not important.

It seems useless in most cases but I think fashion can play a tiny part on imagination which might help inspiring you to make things better in your possession , create things that you don't have , or even invent something that never existed before .

But if you think you don't really need it at all , then what else do we argue ?

Fashion.. fashion is something which people use to hide their true character, to make themselves look best, to have a good impression on others. Fashion is nothing, but just a waste of time. students today devote more time to fashion than to their studies. one should not be judged upon their outer looks, rather upon their inner beauty: kindness, courtesy, generosity. after all there is an old saying '' never judge a book by its cover''. beauty is not in looks, rather it is in heart, mind and soul. we should never try to be someone, we are not. we are we, and that is what makes us beautiful.
