Fashion is a Part of Growing up

“Growing up is partly about trying on superficial looks to match how you want people to see you, and how you want to see yourself. Controlling how people literally view you is a way of learning to construct a sense of self, until you become confidant enough to proceed the other way around. Everyone does it, from the moment they look into a mirror and realize that they can see themselves and therefore other people can see them, and that they haveĀ  a body which, with a bit of effort, can be brought under the mind’s control. It is the nature of youth to play with style in an effort to come to terms with substance. Easy, enough, too to get stuck there.” – Jenny Diski ‘The Sixties’, Consuming the Sixties

Me, personally, I just like messing with peoples’ perceptions and preconceived notions.
