I’ve been writing and reading a lot about Fashion lately. I am on the path of becoming a Fashion Anthropologist and in this journey of finding the facts from the past decades my mind went to the start. Life on Earth began more than 3 billion years ago, evolving from the most basic of microbes into a dazzling array of complexity over time. Running through these complexities humans found their way to become a unique sort of species. The nakedness of the first human is the fact we know for sure but determining exactly when humans began wearing clothes is a challenge, largely because early clothes would have been things like animal hides.
There have been several different theories based on what archaeologists have been able to find the origin of clothes(we won’t get into the details).
Alas the fact that we were all born naked and the culture of covering our bodies, have no relation with any religion. It’s quite astonishing that culture is today related to Clothes. Let me point it out that the sole purpose of clothes was to cover oneself from the cold during the ice age (one of the theories of the invention of the clothes).
Clothing was invented by the human brain. The radicals today say that wearing less clothes is against the religion, Clothes and religion both were combined by the overstretched imagination of these radicals.
There’s a whole lot we don’t know about the invention of clothing which gradually became FASHION today. Fashion is an art, a reflection of life. It is a language of signs, symbol and iconography that non-verbally communicate meanings about individuals. All being said, the world needs to realize that clothes do not at all relate to a religion. We were born naked and the nakedness is the only truth of the Humanity.
The world is but a Canvas to the Imagination, Clothing is the result of this Imagination. Fashion is an “Artistic expression” towards the world at large and has a language of its own. The day these radicals understand this fact, We the women will have one less issue to worry about.
Rationality is the recognition of the fact that nothing can alter the truth and nothing can take precedence over that act of perceiving it.
