Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I’m finding it fascinating the trend towards the change in beauty, especially in the fashion world. Today’s contributors to the fashion industry are constantly challenging traditional thinking, which inspires people like the Brio Group team to think outside the square. Typically we associate mainstream fashion with beauty (“OMG, that dress is gorgeous”), in the eye of the beholder.
In today’s highly competitive world of creative thinkers, fashion trend setters are forced to push the boundaries of what is considered ‘beautiful’ to stand out in the crowd.
I’d like to make particular reference to fashion models. A few cycles back on America’s Next Top Model there was an entrant called Nicole Fox. This 18 year old, extremely shy and drained of confidence teenager entered the show with the idea of “as if!”. This girl, who used to eat lunch on the toilets seat at school to avoid the horrifying torments from her fellow peers because of her perceived ‘ugliness’, turned out to be America’s Next Top Model and in the process won a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics!
A true story of challenging what is to be considered ‘beautiful’. Nicole now enjoys the ‘top model’ lifestyle and can truly call herself, beautiful.
Yours in fashion,
