'I HATE FASHION, I SPIT AT VOGUE'


Now this has to be one of the most interesting articles i have read in a very long time...Tanya Gold made a very interesting point this morning by posting an article on http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/jan/22/i-hate-fashion-tanya-gold about 'WHY I HATE FASHION'.



I have to say this lady has made the fashionistas go crazy..( wondering what vogue has to say, she apparently spits at them .......interesting after i posted a very long article only 2 days ago about how much i love this glossy beacon ).

After seeing the title of her post i immediately had a comeback, 'WHY I HATE FASHION' - well the first thing that i have to say is she cant hate fashion!!!- even if she wants to , we live and breathe fashion every single day... even if she has that M&S dress or a Primark V-neck jumper in her wardrobe, she has to have a logical explenation of why its there?- WELL the first thing would probably be comfort- but there was some one behind that, someone who designed that jumper , or copied it form a designer.That jumper or dress started its journey at the vogue offices and then travelled down to , Marc Jacobs, then tescos and primark...thers a journey each piece has and I'm not talking about a sweat shop making clothes and then selling them ...the idea of that jumper had to come from someone inside the fashion industry ..someone who loves fashion....even if she doesn't shes wearing a jumper that was made by some one who does...
She also suggests that designer clothes don't make you look pretty , well does primark then????designer clothes are made with fabulous fabrics and attention to detail that makes you stand out in the crowd.. and all for the good reasons not the bad...

AND THIS WAS ONLY MY FIRST ARGUMENT AGAINST THE ARTICLE...


I did however agreed on one thing , the size zero issue , and i know vogue does feature a lot of models that only live on grapes , but thers action being taken as we speak ...if were all talking about it then something is being done ! 2010 is all about the comeback of CURVES !


DID I MENTION THAT FASHION IS AN INDUSTRY THAT KEEPS MILLIONS EMPLOYED ?????guess she didn't think of this !

'Good grief life if too short for so much venom'


Then the story about the girl who at only 16 years old died because she was wearing high heels and had fallen between the carriages of a train in West Sussex.. i don't think she should of put this in her article , but she says this was the reason why she decided to write it in the first place..

Well i actually do have something to say back to this Tanya, how can you know the circumstances ? You cant blame high heels for her death, even if she did fall between the carriages.. there might have been many other reasons behind this that we might never understand.

There are millions of girls wearing 6inch heels every Saturday nigh, and yes there are hundreds that have accidents but with most of them its because of their stupidity,not because the shoes are dangerous and i wont even mention the thousands of girls that get joy out of wearing them ...Its a two part argument that can go on for decades and decades ..


Maybe you will never love fashion, but for me life's too short you've got to enjoy it to the MAX , even if it means putting on a pair on MCQUEEN 12 inch heels and you cant be scared of things that might happen or have...

I still think you love fashion as you wear it DAILY ! and there is no way and of us can get out of this BUBBLE of fashion.


I love fashion , Its what i do

and if there are people with and argument than you know thers always going to be someone else with a comeback.


I wont go into all the details but , fabrics, manufacturing, sales advisers, manegers, visual merchandisers, family's , generations depend of the money that fashion brings home with them daily...

PEOPLE+CLOTHES=MONEY FOR THEM TO TAKE HOME !!


I want to write so much more but i think this would just go nowhere...

Well done to her for expressing her opinion on the fashion industry ( freelance journalist...making money) but , it defiantly doesn't work with me .!


IN THE WORDS OF MIRANDA PRIESTLEY(DEVIL WEARS PRADA) ...


THAT'S ALL


p.s I Love Fashion
