Competition and glamour are key elements of the fashion world. The fashion industry employs a variety of people and all of them have very busy moments of the year and very slow moments. Fashion shows are a major ordeal and have a lot of moving parts. Some of the most stunning outfits are combined with some of the crankiest people. Here is an inside look at some of the ins and outs of a fashion show.
Fashion shows are the result of months of work, but even with months of work there is always a struggle to get an outfit to look perfect before it hits the runway. A key theme in examining fashion shows is the general sensitivity and the malaise of many of the people who participate. With all the employees having long hours beforehand and models who barely eat and who have to run backstage in footwear not made for running, these conditions have all the ingredients for people to be in a foul mood. On top of these conditions, given the societal standards of beauty and all the unrealistic nature of thinness present in modeling, self-esteem can be a great challenge when given the appearance of others all competing for the same intense standard of beauty.
Fashion shows bring together a variety of talents in an intense environment. When people enjoy their favorite shows such as Project Runway, it is always good to remember that their drama is something many people could not handle. However, it does make for great entertainment because of the conflicts, the outbursts, the dramatic moods, and the triumph for the winners at the end. Fashion is an interesting career because it can display so many different emotions at once, all in the beauty of clothing as art.
