Fashion has been a part of our expression since the middle ages

People have been using their clothing as  a sign of social status since the middle ages. We began using fashion as statements a very long time ago, and since then the fashion industry has evolved worldwide. The historical designer Charles Frederick Worth was the first person  to have his labels sewn into his clothing line. One of the oldest French Fashion houses  in the world is Hermès, which originated in 1837 by Thierry Hermès.  Fashion has been a sign of wealth,  status and personal expression. The fashion world has evolved to create  beautiful works of fashion art and expression. Fashion brands create their garments  with great details and effort. Finding clothing and fashions that work  with your personality and make you feel  positive is what matters most.

As they say movement is life,  but don't forget where your roots b
