no one has ever really explained fashion to me, particularly the kinds of runway fashion that are so divergent from what people wear in the streets. i don't understand this phenomenon.
why do designers design things that look like this? is it art? abstract art, perhaps? a social commentary, of sorts? no one can realistically think that people are going to wear something that even vaguely resembles the image above. so why design it that way?
help me out, O knowledgeable (and fashionable) friends!
