Fashion trends comes and goes as fast as we can change our lipstick color. Fashion trends directly effect all aspect of our society. According to research, fashion is the cause of political, economical and social change, although fashion motivates our creativity on the other hand astray our youth.
Negative impact of latest fashion have greatly effect on girls. Even girls aren’t think about what style is suitable on them according to their age. Our youth adopted fashion just like it is the goal of their life. The upper class who can adopted latest fashion they seems satisfied but middle class who can’t afford latest fashion feel inferiority complex day by day.
That’s why, our society become more complex in status. We find class difference in our society. We find madness of changing fashion in girls are so high; they even don’t care about social values but also ignored Islamic values. Short jeans and sleeveless shirt, is this a Islamic value? Can a Muslim girl wear this type of dresses? Our Islam allowed this type of dress?
In society we can find one type of class who wear this kind of clothes comfortably. That kind of class Wearing funky or Classic, modern or traditional, Lush and costly branded clothes on daily bases they don’t even feel bad about short kind of dresses.
When i see this type of people a question raised in my mind is Islam only restrict middle class; upper class doesn’t have any responsibility of proper wearing? No Islamic laws implement on them. 1st fashion week was started in 1943 in New York. Basic purpose of this fashion week was, to diverted the attention of France’s people towards American designers, during world war 2nd.
That mean we can change thinking of people through fashion trends. So why designers don’t introduce that kind of fashion who promoted not only our social values but also Islamic laws and clear the boundaries about their dresses of our youth specially in girls.
Now a days fashion trends mislead our youth. They are far away from their creative activities. Rather than they pay attention on future, they are busy in adopting latest fashion trends. Girls who belongs to middle class, can’t afford latest trends cause of low financial status which create more complexity.
Now a days, the dressing of the girl tells us that she belong to either upper class or lower class, if she wear less clothes like short jeans, sleeveless shirt, expensive watch etc that means she belongs to upper class, if a girl wear proper dress that mean she belongs to middle class; that difference is not the sign of developed countries rather than devastated sing of any country. Trend setters targeted younger audience and tried to set their mind according to their strategy.
If we talk about positive aspect of fashion, fashion provides a chance to prominent their creative activities; People show their identity, ability and culture through fashion; We also show social values through our fashion and fashion can bring positive change in thoughts of our youth; so that we can abolish the status difference between two classes; also shed light on the features of Islamic values.
‘God’ whatever created things on earth they have limits and that limit is the beauty of the world. Whenever anybody break the rule of nature, bring disaster. Similarly, Islam also restricted us in dress so we should follow that; so those who introduce fashion and those who adopted fashion must be follow the rules introduced by Islam.
