As with most people here i've always been interested in fashion but i think what really tipped me into obsession was watching too much Sex and the city

One of my most recent fashion obsessions has been SATC. It's so bad with me...I will watch the dvds over and over again...and I turn the volume down so I can just watch what they have on so I won't get distracted by their dialogue.

Hey, that's nothing to be embarrassed about, it's not your fault most of that show is just fashion perfection.

Great question!
I guess I've always been interested in fashion. My mom used to make a lot of clothes for me and my dad used to travel a lot when I was little and he bought me (and my mom) clothes from Italy and France.
I remember when I was little I used to pretend that our corridor was a catwalk and I was a model and I walked up and down it, dressed up in my mom's clothes. And I never really played with my barbies; I just dressed them up and look at them.
I started buying fashion magazines like Vogue when I was 12 and that's when I really started learning about fashion, designers and such.
It's still kind of a mystery, though, why I'm this interested in fashion as I am, 'cause I don't live in a very fashion-conscious country. I mean, I get weird looks from my friends when I buy Vogue and Tommy Hilfiger is considered a designing god over here

Always, been there. One of my "designer pieces" was a prom dress made out of black binliners!

I was 12, very avant garde for that age.

Its always been thre, I never understand people that are NOT interested in fasion.

in my family we travel a lot, and when i was a kid my mom always dressed me in the cutest outfits very in for that age and for where i was living all together (Morocco), not too many kids wore little shorts with matching top that ties at the waist.
anyhow, i had so many clothes and was obsessed with changing outfit, i d come home from school for lunch time and change clothes every single day i did that, the other kids used to make fun of me but i didn t really care, and i still don t so from then it just kepts growing and growing, i ve always had a big thing for vintage i like that the clothes have a past and i d imagine who wore them and the experiences they had
now i have closets packed with clothes and i still want more, i love pieces that stand out without being too much, nothing too sexy, too hard, or just too fashion
clothes have a way for making me feel good and i love that, nothing does it any better

my brother became very conscious of how he looked at a young age, and my mom was an avid shopper...and i helped both of them out a lot so somehow that became fashion. Got me.

When I was about 12, I think, I saw the BBC production of Gormenghast and I've wanted to be Jonathan Rhys Meyer as Steerpike ever since then.

G-Ma loved the fashion, she taught me the bohemian way
Mamma was a model and in all my baby pictures ima rockin the Christian Dior, she also introduced me to Vogue, she has all the good ones from back in the 70s/80s
Dad wears zegna suits on a weekly basis
and the bro isnt a model but should be
Fashion is in my genes
I never had a epiphany about it, its just always been around

I think I was always interested in fashion. I was always dressing up even when there's nothing important happening in a certain day. I just got into the models and the brands just this year.

Quite often had to be dressed up as a kid. Suits and all that kit for as long as I can remember.

It's a natural extension of any other art a person may take a fancy to. It's really one of the more applicable and relevant forms of art.

I got interested when I was in elementary school. I used to watch old black and white movies and draw their dresses.

I'd always cared about how I looked when I was little. Then in 11th grade I went out with a girl who was way into fashion and looked gorgous always. Feeling alittle insecure, I started dressing alittle nicer, and it just snowballed.

i have no idea how i got interested...
i guess it was there all along...

noone in my family is though-> my mom doesnt even wear make up and she buys all her clothes from thrift stores.. i guess the only thing remotely close is that my uncle is an architect (relates to designing?!) if you see the link that is XP

Lucky!

I don't want to start with "I don't know", so I'll say that fashion is, along with other ways of expressing yourself, in my genes. It begun with painting and drawing, then I started creating clothes for my barbies (I hated barbies, but I loved their hair and outfits :p) and became very interested in photography, I think I was around the age of 10 at that time. Teachers have always described my as the creative kid with huge imagination and fantasies as I've always felt the need to communicate and express through concrete mediums. Unfortunately I blocked that vent outlet due to some personal experiences and changes a few years ago, and now I'm trying to 'heal' myself again. TFS is a great medicine in this case
