The fashion industry today is a conglomerate of boyish clothing with a feminine feel and feminine clothing that is merely more revealing menswear. We have “sexy” designs in drab colors that celebrate only one type of the female form to the exclusion of all others.
Fashion is more than just art. It is all art forms coming together into what ought to be a celebration of the image of God and His Creation. What we put on in the morning should inspire is, it should make us feel strong and capable and beautiful. It should be an extension of who we are, a message to the world without saying a single word.
We need to stop thinking of fashion in the Christian realm as being modest, last decade and unattractive and start thinking of fashion as something in which to take joy and to achieve excellence.
We need to start being artists.
