As I just read this comment in Calvin Klein's thread, it hit me. Of course, I've been aware of the state of fashion for a very long time, but it never occured to me that by the time I get to certain positions fashion as we know it could really be dead. I am one week into my first year of Fashion Design studies and I'm scared as s*it. I've had my doubts but I always figured that there's always a chance if you work hard enough to find and grab it. I kind of always knew I wanted a career in fashion - since Barbie days and playing with mom's fabric leftovers to my early teen years when I discovered high fashion. It's really my only field of interest. But the high fashion I fell in love with doesn't exist anymore. I love theatrics and drama. Those extravagant shows with meaning and beauty and the feel of luxury. That's what fashion means to me. But that doesn't seem to be "in trend" anymore. We all know it's only about money and low standards now... Anyway, I wanted to hear your opinion on this topic: is there future in fashion? Is it worth going through years of education and practice, sacrificing lots and lots of money, patience, time... Is it worth fighting this fight? Will fashion ever be able to recover from 2010s and go back to theatrics and artistry that were once a part of the package? I'm really looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
