I think of fashion as a sort of gift to the world — people adorning themselves to express their feelings and to celebrate occasions; it creates memories and marks time in one's life.

Fashion is important because it comes from within. Fashion is all about juxtaposition and coming out of your comfort zone. This season, we play with vibes of both strength and shyness, masculine and feminine, bold and sheer. The balance between strong seduction and whispers of sheer lace create a seductively alluring mood for the collection.
Fashion matters because it is a language and a tool used to express oneself. Self-expression is extremely important, and fashion allows you to do that. Yes it does help the world in a range of ways — from establishing individual identities to creating jobs!
Carmen Marc Valvo
Fashion is part of our everyday lives and it helps people with their personal sense of self and how they project that into the world.
Fashion matters. It is about individuality, personal expression and choice. It helps the world by helping each individual person. Once in a while we all have a bad day, and sometimes simply putting on your favorite dress, shoe or even makeup will make you feel happy.

Fashion is a way of expressing one's own individuality and personality. It's also a way of communicating the mood and happenings of a particular time. Fashion is a storyteller.
Fashion helps us communicate part of our personality.

Fashion is important because it is a form of self-expression and how we present ourselves to the world. It is something that people should have fun with and experiment with. Fashion makes people feel good about themselves.
Fashion has the ability to bring people from all diverse walks of life together; it is a tool that allows individuals to be expressive. Clothing should be quieter than the woman so her true beauty can shine through.

Fashion comes from all walks of life. Inspirations can come from a dream, a vision, even the intricate construction of a quilt. This collection was truly extracted from the dream of a community in Alabama. They survived together by creating beautiful quilts that came from their imagination. Their unity and craftsmanship was so beautiful. Fashion inspires people to be creative.
Fashion matters because it's a primal need in us to constantly renew and change.

Obviously as an industry fashion matters, but it is also such an important part of our daily lives. How we dress communicates so much about us, and it makes a difference both professionally and personally when you look your best.
Fashion matters because it's a form of self-expression that provides a moment in the day for one to dream. A little time to dream is OK — the world has enough challenges to keep us pretty busy.
One of my biggest priorities as a designer is to be socially responsible and to use my craft for the greater good. In July 2010, I started the "Kindness Is Always Fashionable" platform where I designed a tote to help raise funds for the 10 million children affected by the Pakistan flood disaster. Since 2010, I have partnered with others organizations such as GlobalGiving and OrphanAid Africa to create one-of-a-kind totes and clutches where 100 percent of the net proceeds go directly to the organization.

Fashion is a way for people to express themselves. It is something that transcends cultures, and can be interpreted on a global scale. People are able to communicate with each other through their personal style, when they have no other way of doing so.
SAUNDER by Emily Saunder
Let's be real, fashion will never smooth out the rift between warring factions or find a cure for cancer, but it is still a powerful force in many people's lives. It allows men and women a means to express themselves on a daily basis and is an amazing and accessible creative outlet. Also, more and more companies are pushing the boundaries of the kind of impact fashion can have by collaborating with artisans, promoting fair trade and eco-friendly practices and giving more thought to how their garments are made.
Fashion inspires and brings cultures together. Plus, you can't walk around naked!
Fashion matters because it offers beauty and fun, often lifting the spirits. It gives us the chance to express ourselves freely and allows us the opportunity to indicate our heritage, our mood and our interests, among many other possibilities.

Fashion is such an incredibly important part of our personal and cultural expression. Each day, through clothing, we decide how we are going to represent ourselves to the world. Without a doubt, fashion makes life more beautiful and fascinating.
