To me, fashion is a language that communicates what it means to be human. It extends far beyond the superficial and even the functional — it is a responsive art form that reflects and drives social reform. It is an economic force that connects peoples and cultures all over the globe. It is a pioneer of technological innovations in the digital age. It is the most powerful form of self-expression, both a form of armor and non-verbal communicator of identity.
