Fashion Psychology



I decided my first piece here to be about Fashion, as I believe that fashion is the ''skin'' that we choose to wear day-in and day-out. Many ''coachees'' ask me why I pay attention and talk about fashion (while working towards their inner goals) and the answer is simple '' What we wear, is in a way a reflection of our inner world/state, and it has to do all with how we are being perceived by others''. It may be superficial to some, but fashion was, is and always will be extremely important in our daily lives. For example, Fashion was extremely important in Ancient Greece. This is apparent in the writings of the majority of the writers of the Classical period, such as Herodotus, Xenophon, Aristophanes and in many others. Also, there are many archaeological evidence to support that clothes, accessories, even cosmetic products were extremely important to the everyday life of the Ancient Greeks, as beauty was essential, and fashion was one of the vehicles that could reveal the social class of individuals. People had to dress in a certain way to be accepted and ''reflect'' their place in the society. Thus, the subconscious impact that clothes had, and till to this day have, was/is astounding.
