Throughout the ages, fashion styles have changed. From flared bell bottoms in the 1970’s to low rise bootcut jeans in the early 2000’s. Now, many older trends have resurfaced and fashion today is seen as a way for people to express their own individuality.

For EvCC Running Start student, Pauline Bordon, this is true. As an artist, she believes that fashion is a form of art. “An artist creates something that is different from anything else. You just gather all of these different pieces and make something,” she said. “The possibilities are endless and I think this goes with all types of creating whether it’s painting or fashion.”

Bordon likes to match color accents on her clothing items to her accessories to add more color to neutral looks.

Bordon says that her style changes every day depending on how she’s feeling and she likes experimenting with her styles. “Whether that’s classy, bohemian, sporty, girly or laid back,” she says, “It’s all about being confident.”  She’ll wear clothes that can be described as girly or sophisticated and other days she’ll be wearing streetwear or anything “sporty and casual.”

She gets her inspiration from watching Seoul Fashion Week and from social media influencers, Jenn Im and Sophie Seddon. “All of these have similar styles that I feel match what I’m comfortable wearing,” she says. “They all have an edgy hipster, aesthetic style.”

Although she gets inspiration from these people, she believes her biggest inspiration has been her mom. “My mom has always been really girly and has always been into fashion and loves shopping,” she says.

I don’t think there’s a true definition for what fashion is. It should just be what you want to wear and you being comfortable in your own clothes. It’s a type of art and should reflect who you are as a person.”

“I don’t think there’s a true definition for what fashion is,” Bordon says. “It should just be what you want to wear and you being comfortable in your own clothes. It’s a type of art and should reflect who you are as a person.”

Bordon believes that fashion can be impactful because it expresses everyone’s own individuality. “People shouldn’t be judged for what [they] want to wear.” She says that at times even she gets comments regarding how ridiculous her outfits seem to be to other people.

Bordon says that “if people want to or don’t want to follow trends they shouldn’t let anything hold them back because that’s who they are.”

Bordon says some days she’ll wear clothes that can be described as girly or sophisticated and other days she’ll be wearing streetwear or anything “sporty and casual.”

“Fashion is unique to everyone…it can be aesthetically pleasing or can make statements and feel empowering,” she says, “For some people, it’s just putting together a cute outfit and for others” it’s a form of expression.

Bordon says that “Just like some people may be into architecture, theatrical design or photography, other people spill their creativity and ideas onto clothes and accessories by devoting themselves to studying fabrics, colors, measurements, proportions and more.”
