Trickle Down Fashion
Trickle down fashion theory is when the trends from the high fashion couturiers are being carried on by high street fast fashion brands and are mass produced. To visit a fast fashion high street brand and compare price points will be highly informative and efficient for commercial purposes.
In a city filled with art and architecture, it’s almost impossible to not feel a connect and get inspired. Travelling to cities with a historical background towards art and to understand how people overcame political issues by deviating in art is very interesting. Design travels through history but always remember to put in your style and interpretation as a designer, that’s what makes it unique and stands out.
