‘Faith’ x ‘Fashion’ - The Two ‘F’ Words in My Life
Fashion, this ‘F’ word, fascinates me, even till now. It is so multifaceted and multilayered. We all have our own take and attitude towards fashion. It may not even stay the same throughout. It could simply mean ‘clothes’ to many. To me, fashion is a kind of language, a form of self-expression, to communicate with others who you are.
So the question is who I am. I’ve been in fashion for long enough to embrace its ebbs and flows, both in the bigger context and within my own little business. I do, however, love to forge into new adventures and metamorphose. That’s the fun part of it. My recent walk in Christian faith has added a new perspective to my fashion journey.
Fashion is one of the most amazing creations of God. God created fashion. Our passion for fashion is our own freewill. We are free to choose what we like, that is. As long as we’re within reasonable limits, it does bring immense joy. Very often, we get to experience God’s joy through fashion, be it the designing, manufacturing or simply wearing of it. In the Old Testament Book of Exodus, the Bible and Torah both describe how God himself instructed people to make breastplates with 12 different gemstones for the high priests to use in prayer. God is into the aesthetics of designs, just look at how He created this beautiful world. True beauty is an inward job that comes from the heart. As a God’s It Girl, I’m always in for exhibiting genuine kindness and dressing well. Faith x Fashion = God’s It Girls!
