THE TWO-FOLD OF FASHION BEHAVIOR:
FASHION GARMENTS INFLUENCE ON HUMAN BEHAVIOR, AND VICE VERSA.

I see fashion as a positive concept; the prominent ever-changing portion of it, is an intriguing aspect. The fact that clothing can reflect or disguise ones inner emotional states, banish depression and melancholia, an individual may deliberately wear a dress of color and design which is thought to express opposite feelings. The dress is a cue that communicates mood from performers to audience, a mood that may in turn be conveyed back to performers. Although we may owe sentimental dept to our pre-human ancestors, clothing, like language- a the tool of fashioning, is uniquely a human product.

My investigation is concerned a) with human behavior that has an influence on the fashion garment and industry, b) and the influence a fashion garment has on human behavior. Fashion behavior and vice versa, are two different concepts, in this research essay I will try to unify it as a coherent whole, by examining the co-existing concepts in the same landscape: behavior. If one were to look at how one relates to these two different concepts, one will soon realize that they are connected. Both share some quiet information and hidden relationships among people and garments. This relationship is what I am after. As a result this research attempts to ascertain a potential symbolism of garments and to reveal a change in unconscious trends.
