Fashion Day

If we’re being honest, fashion is something that is carefully followed by some people and not paid attention to at all by others. It’s something that either has a huge impact on a person’s life or is just an afterthought. If a person is willing to celebrate Fashion Day, a holiday observed annually on July 9th, then we can only assume that fashion has a major impact on their lives.

And if that is truly the case, then they’re really going to want to observe this holiday with the gusto it deserves. How does one celebrate this holiday with gusto? Unfortunately, we’re unable to answer that question as it’s up to every individual to decide how they should personally observe it.

The History of Fashion Day

Fashion design is something that goes back thousands of years. In fact, it has been traced back to ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece. In all three of these cultures, fashion was a status symbol.

People who were wealthy could wear the most expensive and stylish garments, while the poor were left with wearing whatever they had crafted for themselves or with inferior garments.

The clothing of the rich could look nice, while the clothing of the poor had to be practical. The history of Fashion Day doesn’t go as far back as the history of fashion design. This holiday was only created in 2016.

We’re unsure of who invented this holiday or the purpose behind its creation, but we think it may have once been associated with a particular fashion event. Unfortunately, we can’t verify that information and will just have to keep looking to see if we can ever find the history of this holiday.
