A Fashionista can be described as a person who creates or promotes high fashion. Also, who dresses according to the trends of fashion, or one who closely follows those trends. It is a term used to define a woman with a penchant for shopping and a natural flair for combining both current and vintage fashionable trends.
Fashionista in Urban Society
In today’s Urban society, “fashionista” is not by any means a negative term.
Thanks to television shows like “Sex and the City” rather more specifically, thanks to actresses such as Sarah Jessica Parker, the image of a “fashionista” has been modernized into a much more positive, powerful and successful feminine role.
Forget the shallow materialistic image so many people are quick to describe.
The truth is, it’s the new millennium and the hottest trend right now, is that it’s okay to be a woman again. The “fashionista” doesn’t look at her femininity as a gender flaw.
“Fashionista’s” simply look at Fashion as an Art, their own bodies as the canvas, and the sense of style they develop along the way is simply the masterpiece.
True fashion is simply an expression of identity.
“Fashionista’s” are extremely realistic when it comes to the world of fashion, they’re also very knowledgeable about the Fashion Arts. A person’s not automatically materialistic just because they buy a designer suit or expensive jeans, it’s often truer about “fashionista’s” that they just happen to know (what is called) a “good hand” in fashion. All that means is that the person buying the item is aware of the “quality” of that item.
