T.V., films and other mass media have been the biggest carriers of fashion. What people see in their favorite actors and actress they copy their hairstyle, dress, ornaments and mannerism. They love the latest arts and designs and run after them. There is no harm in following the trends of changing fashion. But the pursuit of fashion is a costly affair. It is difficult for middle class to follow the fashion. Only the wealthy people can afford to keep pace with the changing fashions which change overnight. There are fashion shows and ramp shows which contribute to popularization of fashions.
Most of the fashions are imported to India from various other big centers of fashion like Rome, Berlin, London, Paris, Hollywood, and Tokyo, New York. Blind imitation of western culture has adversely affected the Indian values and cultures. The youth very often are misled due to fashion and fall prey to bad habits. Sometimes when they find it difficult to follow the trends they resort to unfair means to fulfill their urge for fashions. Many fashion conscious students spend a great deal of their valuable time and money in viewing latest fashion. They do so at the cost of their studies. This is an unhealthy trend. It should be avoided.
Fashion is not bad unless and until it is in limit. When fashion becomes obsession, it becomes a cause of concern. No aware and sensible man will call fashion crazy man good. Fashion should always be guided by our values and cultures.
We should be moderate in following the trends of fashion.
