That's an essay of Alexander Fury, the fashion director of the web site SHOWstudio.com. This essay intrigued me, I found this essay very Relevant.
Fashion is inherently political. The choice of what to wear each morning marks you out as a sentient being. It is a manner, albeit tacit, of advertising a point of view, a belief system, like scrawling your cultural affiliations across your chest. Fashion, in short, is sartorial propaganda. In a modern world where we afford fashion the status of the politic it is perhaps inevitable that politics in turn are subject to the vagaries of fashion.
...Who was it that said that again?
