Fashion is a form of expression. Whether you're using fashion to express how we feel on the inside or to express your political agenda, you are expressing yourself and who you are in the way you dress. We look up to incredible designers who create beauty that can be worn. We devote ourselves to brands we can't live without.
The movie industry is no stranger to the fashion world. The two industries work together to bring beautiful acting and costumes to life to make us feel something while we watch a movie. If you're a fashion gal, the costumes are one of the first things you notice and only helps form your opinion.
