“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel
Last week while I was watching the Toronto Fashion Week one thing which struck my mind was, if we see the models minus their accessories wouldn’t they look drastically different? I also recollected reading a column in The Independent (a UK daily) which proclaimed that fashion accessories are as a matter of fact saving the mobile bangyoulater fashion industry!
All this made me think that there must be something which makes these accessories so important to the fashion fraternity worldwide. Experts say the answer is: They complements one’s garment. In addition to adding colors, style or class to an outfit, they also have practical utility and importance.
That bring us to another important aspect as to so what exactly qualifies as a fashion accessory? My in house experts say anything which supplements a dress like jewelry, gloves, handbags, hats, belts, scarves, watches, sunglasses, pins, stockings, bow ties, leg warmers, leggings, neckties, suspenders etc can be considered as a fashion accessory.
