The dictionary meaning of fashion is that (Dresses, behaviour, thought etc.,) which is considered most to be admired or imitated during a period or at a place. But the fashion may or may not be applicable to all. What is fashion at one time and one place need not be so at the same time at the other place. It is different from culture in that it is more in dynamic in terms of change than the culture. Or shall we say the ‘culture’ of fashion is ‘changing frequently’. The term fashion is used both in the positive and negative sense. The current popular trends is expressed when something is referred to as fashionable or unfashionable. Everything in the life from architecture to technology and every human being has fashion. Perhaps, it is the fashion of the fashion-haters not to accept the trends of fashion.
Fashion for men is as much needed as it is for women. Men’s fashion includes their clothing, hair style, their look, their food habit, talking nature etc. What make a man more fashionable are not just his dresses, not just his talking, not just his mannerisms etc. a combination of these things makes a man more fashionable. An unfashionable guy is not liked by his counterparts, who are fashionable. In fact, the changing trends in the fashion world make it very difficult to keep pace with the developments.
Make-up is an important aspect in human’s life. Everybody wants to look good. Every human being has beauty in him/her. This is because no two human beings look alike. Make-up is an art which enhances one’s look and thereby the beauty. Make up is as essential for men as it is for women. By using make-up, people show their age reduced to a great extent and the old look younger.
The art of make-up is more used in cinema than in real life. In fact, people take the cue of make-up from the recent movies. As an art, make-up is well exploited in the movies. Hollywood is not an exception to this. Hollywood make-up secrets are not secrets but well known to everybody. There are lot of books, video clippings and websites about Hollywood make-up secrets. More often than not, make-up creates the fashion. The movie-goers, particularly the youngsters, follow the make-ups or the dressing ways of the hero or heroine of a particular movie. The trend of fashion is thus set.
In earlier days, people dressed just for the sake of dressing or funpub their body. But slowly with the development of culture the way people started dressing changed. They started showing more interest in their dressing. New materials were found out for dressing. The new materials started giving way for new forms or trends and thus, started the advent of designing clothes.
