Last Friday, when the whole world was glued to TV( don't call it an idiot box please, at least for this time) to watch the Olympics opening ceremony live, the people had to go through some strange "fashionable" experiences.
Their mind's inquisitive nature always demanded some explanations in
response to what they had been seeing on the screen. Actually, the
problem was not with their mind.
Rather, the fashionable dresses
representing a plethora of color combination which mirrored the
cultural amalgam and versatility of the planet had created an illusion
in their minds.
They couldn't make out what they were witnessing in fact. Were they
watching a fashion catwalk on the premises of Bird's Nest? Yes...it was
of that sort. It was a fresh manifestation of how fashion is
overpowering the exotic fields.
That evening, the opening ceremony of the biggest sports gala in the
human history so far had provided a gateway to a "sporty" fashion. The
real purpose, the games, had been pushed behind the curtains. And the
colorful fashion apparel had taken center stage.
However, this marriage of fashion and sports is not a unique ceremony
that we would feel like dancing. Because, we have seen a number of
sports stars being the promotional campaigners of various famous fashion
What amused most of the people that how the very fashion statement of
sports persons had transferred directly from the huge billboards to the
playground itself. And, perhaps, they looked better in those fancy
dresses than their doctored photos on any fashion magazine's cover. Of
course, we love reality.
Though grabbing the maximum number of gold medals
always on the mind, most of the countries seemed to have sent their
players only as fashion showpieces in order to show their growing
prosperity. Probably, they might be thinking that " fashion makes a
nation great." Here, you may laugh.
Finally, this sporting event will definitely see many records getting
broken and made, but for me the record it has made on "fashion" tracks
is set to survive for long. Undoubtedly, a record worth a gold medal.
I am a fashion trend analyst and love to write regularly on fashion trends.
We can see a huge collection of modern fashion apparel here also.
