The latest Teen Vogue magazine, newest pair of Tom’s, Betsey Johnson dropping her new collection for Fall, and also what’s the hottest thrift store in the area is has become the buzz of peoples conversations. People aren’t just going to the mall to buy a pair of new jeans or shoes from any store, but they’re going to buy items of clothing that fit their look. It also has become more common that you come across students at your school, in the streets, or on social networking sites that share the same love for fashion that you have. Even in world news, you hear breaking news such as Howard University named #2 on the list of Best Dressed Universities. Sites such as Tumblr and LOOKBOOK have become ways for fashion lovers to keep up with the latest trends and also see what others are wearing. Clothes have simply become more than just an item, but a passion and love. Numerous amount of teens, young adults, and even adults have dreams of having the next big fashion designer with there name being compared to designers such as Oscar De La Renta, Louis Vuitton, Kimora Lee Simmons, and many more. Ten years ago, you wouldn’t be sitting here right now or on your Smartphone reading the latest article from HBCUBuzz’s fashion department. In the 21st century, fashion has definitely made an up rise and from the looks of it, this is only the beginning of it. Just remember, no matter what you strive to do don’t look at it not only as a goal or dream but also, as a takeover!
