Fashion is the art of style, creativity, dressing, and adorning oneself. It encompasses pieces of jewelry, hairstyles, makeup, etc. Fashion is transient. It keeps evolving and changing with time.

Fashion can be influenced by quite a lot of factors like cultural, social, personal, political, environmental, economic, and psychological factors.

Explaining a few, we have.

  • Social factors: The impact of celebrities and social media influencers on fashion is paramount. A style by any celebrity or influencer goes viral pretty quickly and becomes more trendy too. Fans and followers of these celebrities begin to work these styles and before you know it these styles become Fashion.
  • Economic factors: When there is economic growth in the country and people likely have more money to spend, they are willing to spend more on fashion and other luxury items.
  • Personal factors: A lot of personal factors play a role in influencing fashion. These personal factors include age, occupation, lifestyle, and personal style. People of a particular age would typically dress differently than others citing Gen Z and millennials. Occupation can also influence your choice of clothing (fashion), the same as lifestyle. 
  • Psychological factors: Self-esteem and self-image play a huge role in influencing fashion trends. A person with high self-esteem would dress more comfortably and confidently in different styles while a person with low esteem would be conservative in their choices.

With fashion changing constantly, Fashion designers should bear in mind uniqueness, demand, and weather factors when selecting fabric and colour of such fabric.

In the words of a famous German fashion designer, Wolfgang Joop “Fashion is all about suspense, surprise, and fantasy. It’s not about rules”. Celebrities, movies and music, fashion stylists, and the economy of the country all influence fashion. To create stunning designs, a designer needs to have a good eye for color and shape. S/he would also need to be able to spot trends. Also, creativeness, detailed observation skills, communication skills, innovative skills, artistic thinking, and imaginative skills are relevant.
