Yesterday morning, I had the unique opportunity to enjoy breakfast and engage in conversation about my favorite topic (fashion) and my favorite store (T.J.Maxx). The discussion was led by panelists Dr. Hazel Clark, Research Chair of Fashion at Parsons The New School For Design, and Leslie Fremar, Celebrity Fashion Stylist. Exploring some very interesting new studies on how women feel about fashion and self-expression, it was an informative and enlightening experience. It was so much fun to gain the insights and perspectives of my colleagues that work as writers and editors across major fashion periodical platforms.
- According to 77% of women, more fashion options means more opportunity to self-express.
- 55% of women interpret trends with a personal twist.
- 88% of women agree that they dress for themselves, not for others.
