What is it about fashion that sets our hearts racing?

Fashion is thrilling. Whether window-shopping or drooling over runway stills and lookbooks, fashion is an experience. Certain designs resonate within us - we imagine them as part of our lives.

My own foree into the world of fashion was unexpected. Throughout my teen years, I dressed in enormous band t-shirts and baggy jeans. Fashion was simply something I did not apply to my own existence.

Somewhere along the line, however, everything changed. I don't remember the exact moment, or know why it happened, but it did. My life was suddenly illuminated by fashion.

The changes to my wardrobe were slow at first, and then snowballed. Suddenly I started to feel more comfortable in my own skin – something I had always struggled with. I began to discover myself through fashion.

I fell in love with the confidence that came from clothing; with the ways it could showcase who I truly was. Fashion allowed me to display my personality in a way that my shy demeanour never could. It helped me to find my voice.

Whatever fashion means to you, embrace it. Find your voice, find your style, and never look back.
