My Fashion Statements is a fashion diary that aims to encourage every Tina, Drew, and Harriet to step out of that comfort zone by taking fashion risks without being afraid to raise a few eyebrows. This blog challenges conventions and commands conversations about the latest fashion news and style trends flooding the magazines and social media spheres. Fashion has a voice and we are the interpreters. You decide how you want to tell your story. After all, fashion rules are made to be broken.
Back in the 90s, everyone was wearing their heart on their sleeves (literally). It was an angst-filled decade where grunge was all the rage (puns!) and we all had an undying need to express ourselves (I use the general we, but I was merely a toddler at the time). Today, this trend has magically resurfaced with the 90s resurrection as designers from Versace to Kenzo were inserting subliminal messages in their clothing. What do these messages mean? That's for us to interpret. And there's nothing more thrilling than the possibility of interpretation and reading into the mind's of creative geniuses (or common folk, like ourselves). Here are some graphics you'll definitely want to get your hands on.

Who doesn't love a play on words?
What should we take from all this? People want to read on the go and self-expression has become more explicit. In the age of social media and the selfie, it is no wonder designers are screaming their thoughts on the runways. Personally, I love words and combining fashion with language is my ice cream sundae.
