A beautiful and versatile art form, fashion is an extension of oneself. It is a visual manifestation of how you want to be perceived. Its possibilities are endless, and it is an exquisite medium to express one’s individuality. You are what you wear, as we fashion girls would say. Though a form of self-expression, it is also highly influenced by culture, society, and trends. One of the biggest and undeniable contrasts in fashion is between the French and American women.
