One of the problems of writing and working and looking at the Internet is that it’s very hard to separate fashion from deep change.
Fashion for the most part is nothing but the ostentation of riches.
When I was little, my parents really only wanted me to be a scientist or a doctor; they had never even heard of law school. I think even these days if you were to tell your mother you want to be a fashion designer, or an artist or a writer, a lot of Asian parents would be alarmed because they don’t think that’s a secure career.
Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse.
Business is tough, and the fashion industry is particularly tough.
Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.
Nowadays it is the fashion to emphasize the horrors of the last war. I didn’t find it so horrible. There are just as horrible things happening all round us today, if only we had eyes to see them.
Fashion in the past meant conforming and losing oneself. Fashion in the present means being individual and finding oneself.
To try to fashion something from suffering, to relish our triumphs, and to endure defeats without resentment: all that is compatible with the faith of a heretic.
Fashion is an imposition, a reign on freedom.
