Freebase

  1. Fashion

    Fashion is a general term for a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style with which a person dresses, as well as to prevailing styles in behaviour. Fashion also refers to the newest creations of textile designers. The more technical term, costume, has become so linked to the term "fashion" that the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while "fashion" means clothing more generally and the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. The world is a library in which only the conscious becomes wiser. 2. The world of people You are in the amusement park, gloomy clown fantasy, circus themes everywhere, you feel the grin of awareness forever smiling in the soul. On you is a clown makeup of hypocrisy and a flower of laughter on your clown jacket, it sprinkles with juice and gives insight. You have in your hands a card on one part, that is, the bright side of your personality, on it another person who is a joker is mirrored. You get up from the attraction chair and get into the baby car with a motor. You see a chain carousel of disunity, a horse carousel a symbol of pride, and the fakirs show a fire show, expressing their fiery opinion. You go to the children's playroom everywhere egoists go, play an American game in which many people hold their hands for days on what they want to get. In another room of the disco foam party of life-size puppets who do not want to be themselves, eerie soap bubbles in the form of clown smiles burst with the roar of a terrible clown laugh of awareness. A ghost train travels everywhere for children who will never grow up inside, gaining adults who do not feel reality, who travel on an endless journey of infantility. History, fashion and philosophy have turned reality into a paradoxical anachronism, and morality has fallen into suspended animation here expecting better times. 3. Understanding, accepting alien worlds, your world will expand to an alternative universe. 4. The human world is a fun party in a madhouse, open your eyes - this is a fun evening party in hell. 5. Self-knowledge is a whole archeology. You can find in yourself a whole, lost civilization from a past life. This is not a known inner world that is forgotten due to problems with the outside world. 6. Reality has very gloomy humor, painted with neon luminescent paint of irony and sarcasm hints and clues lurk in them. Does he seem cruel to you? You have no sense of humor. 7. Only death can write you out of this psychiatric hospital. 8. The end of the world is the logical conclusion of human madness. 9. The world is a fun amusement park, gloomy fun reigns here, funny, black melancholy is felt in the air, laughter of madness is heard everywhere. To ride this or that attraction, your understanding and awareness should be of such growth. 10. You feel the mortal humor of reality, its lethal tin. If you cannot stop laughing, then you understand her jokes. You realize that philosophy in this fun, fun, fun hell is very deep, deep, deep shit. You see how you are attached to the rails in this house of terrible, crazy fun, and from that door, which shows a cheerful skull, you will be moved at any moment, cheerful, smiling, children's train of your madness, your fate: chuh-chuh- chuh-tu-tuuu. Yes, these rails, this is a very funny deja vu of reincarnation, in which every time a completely new joke is prepared for you. And as always, your fate, your executioner.

  4. Oscar Wilde:

    Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

  5. Stella McCartney:

    If you think about how much fashion there is, whether it be luxury or fast, it is sort of swamping the planet, we have been relying on an industry that is essentially medieval. It really is an amazing moment we are living in ... (with) change on everything, on energy, on architecture, this is the moment to look to the future for our children.
