What Is Fashion Production?

To understand fully what fashion production is all about, it’s very important to have a look at what the term “fashion” stands for. Generally speaking, fashion refers to different styles on practices in the area of clothing, makeup, accessories and even furniture. In a very strict sense, the term only refers to trends in wears or apparels. Hence, the production of fashion as discussed in this write-up is only limited to clothing, wears, attires and dresses.

Fashion production as it relates to clothing has actually come a very long way. Basically, the term refers to the manufacturing of various kinds of clothing materials, dresses, and fashion accessories. Several factors have always influenced the production process. Over the years, several kinds of fashion attires have actually been produced. Many of them have cultural and traditional undertones. In the ancient times, people made use of local materials like animal skin and fur in producing the attires they put on. Different kinds of clothing styles were also produced through such local means. However, there was a notable improvement in fashion production during the period of industrial revolution of the late 18th century. It was a great awakening era that swept across Europe, America and other continents of the world. The era witnessed the establishment of various fashion production plants both in Europe and other continents. Several fashion manufacturers emerged. Different kinds of patterns and approaches were also introduced in the production process. Lots of quality clothing materials, fashion dresses and accessories were also produced.

In the contemporary times, the production of fashion is still ongoing. The fashion industry in the modern times is moving at a very high speed. Different kinds of approaches have been introduced. There’s also the infusion of technology into the production of clothing materials. Different kinds of sophisticated sewing machines and tools have been invented. Gone are the days when fashion production is only limited to the local tailor or dressmaker along the street. Today, large corporations have come into the fashion business. Several fashion brands have been established. Lots of quality readymade garments, men’s wears, women’s wears, and even kids’ wears have been produced.

Again, fashion production is now a very lucrative course in colleges and universities. Interested individuals can go through the education process in order to bag degrees in the area of cloth production. Great innovative ideas have always emerged from the fashion education process. The results are also quite obvious. The world is now witnessing an upsurge of fashion trends on yearly basis. Different kinds of fashion products and accessories are all over the place. The fashion industry is indeed actually thriving in various nations of the world. Great fashion plants, firms, selling outlets are up and running in various countries.

Finally, fashion production has also gone the internet way. Many great fashion companies now operate online. Lots of innovative ideas about fashion can be found online. Different kinds of fashion wears and accessories are also marketed online. Wholesale and retail fashion marketing are also causing waves on the internet. Mass production of fashion products is also thriving on the internet. The world is yet to witness a lot as the fashion industry continues to soar high.

Teens: How to Prepare and What NOT to Wear on Your Mexican Jungle Tour – Look totally in Fashion!

Teens (and adults, too) ~ ziplining, hiking and cave snorkelling in the jungle is no excuse to look drab!

Any day trip you make in the Yucatan, Mexico, home of the ancient Mayan, whether it be tripping around Chichen Itza, hiking through the Tulum jungle or ATVing along ancient Mayan sacbe’s, it is cool to be fashionable and not packing the kitchen sink.

Being a local in the jungles and beaches of the ancient Mayan world all my life and knowing a lot of adventure guides I have written “What To Prepare and What NOT to Wear” guidelines that are shared in two parts.

My name is Landis Grace and welcome to the jungles and adventures of the ancient Mayans.

1) DO NOT bring a huge backpack that is ugly and makes you look like Marco Polo. In a style that matches your swimsuit bring a small stylish backpack or even a beachbag with long handles that you can use like a backpack. I like the small backpack better because it has pockets but the beach bag will do, too. As long as it matches your swimsuit.

2) DO NOT bring your wallet. Wallets are heavy – Put the cash you think you will need for the day (preferably pesos but American dollars are accepted mostly everywhere), some identification like your health card, social insurance card and a credit card in a sandwich size ziploc bag to keep it dry from the water bottle, wet towel or even in the unlikely event of rain. Leave your important identification like your passport and the rest of your cash in the safe in the hotel. Don’t bring another smaller purse to put in the big purse – it adds unnecessary weight and if you have two purses your ‘purse-instinct’ might let you leave one of them somewhere.

3) DO NOT wear hiking boots – they are ugly, heavy, take too long to dry and you will not need them! DO wear some nice sandals, of course comfortable without tall heels so you can walk in them without socks, yuck, and the best would be sandals that could get wet and would dry quickly… leather is okay, but leather doesn’t dry fast. Even though the weather is perfect here in Mexico there are the odd puddles ~ and you want to be able to happily stomp through them not worrying about the state of the shoes afterwards! The jungle is the place to get back in touch with your inner child, not spending the day in wet leather hiking boots!

4) DO NOT get caught with uncharged batteries or a full chip on your camera or phone! Make sure you charge up everything the night before you leave – and download any photos you don’t need ~ you don’t want to be fumbling for your battery or deleting photos to make room as that spider monkey whooshes past you on your jungle walk! And – ziploc bag the stuff you don’t want to get wet!

5) DO NOT go without food! We have precious sugar levels to keep up! There is no reason why we have to starve waiting for the lunch stop. When you are booking your trip ask if lunch “comida/komeeeedah is/es incluido/inclueeeedoh”. Even if it is, it will probably mean a designated stop at a designated time so until then you might get hungry. Try to take small snacks from your hotel the morning of your trip to suffice on the bus, or between the opportunities of finding a snack or lunch stand. Grab some hard snacks like apples, cookies or oranges from your hotel, and have everything pre-washed with bottled water if it hasn’t been already. You can do like the Mayans and pre-peel the oranges so all you do is eat from the bag. Throw some paper towels in the ziploc bag as well. Don’t bother with food like bananas and grapes as they get soft and squishy in minutes in the Mexican heat! Once you are inside the ruins, there may be no time nor availability for food.

6) DO NOT dehydrate! Grab a lime or two from your hotel and squirt some in your water bottles ~ it tastes better. Maybe even add a little sugar. And this is another suggestion – a lot of people like to freeze their water bottles the night before, but I do not recommend this – first off, it will go from being frozen to lukewarm very fast and in the meantime unless it is in a ziploc bag it will make a mess in your beach bag or backpack with the condensation. Leave it room temperature, that is the best for your stomach anyways. (the plastic bag is still a good idea anyways though)

7) DO NOT have streaky makeup ~ no, no, no ~ chicas, this is why waterproof mascara was invented – in another small plastic bag bring a small mirror in a crash-proof compact, waterproof mascara for touchups, lipstick (that matches your swimsuit and backpack) and a couple of paper napkins for sneezing, cleaning or wiping. If you are a fashion queen you could bring a hair brush, but a small one. Bring some extra hair elastics.

8) DO NOT bring a huge container of sunscreen! Transfer a small amount of sunscreen into a small plastic bag or small bottle. Start the morning with some on, and you won’t have to reapply until mid way through the trip, and probably only once.

9) DO NOT eat food from vendors that cannot be cleaned by you. Some of the local people will be selling food like bags of peeled oranges, pineapple, or peanuts outside the entrances of most of the ruins ~ I have personally eaten those but I wash fruit first with my bottled water. Peanuts in the shell are better or course. Unless you are starving though, best not to chance anything. It’s not necessarily a cleanliness issue, because I am fine with all the foods I eat here in Mexico, but when I go back to Canada every summer my stomach feels queasy there for awhile – so I think it is just what we become accustomed to – so don’t take a chance if you don’t need to.

So now you know what your backpack is filled with for your trip. – camera, phone, plastic bag as wallet, plastic bag with a small amount of sunscreen, water bottle, compact, tissue, lipstick, mascara, maybe a hairbrush, elastics and for the first half of the trip anyways, apples, oranges and cookies. Not bad. You are probably thinking what about towels, and swimsuits and changes of clothing and all that stuff? Well I have some really good jungle fashion ideas about that, too, that I will share with you in DRESS FASHiONABLY iN THE JUNGLE! ~ How to Prepare and What to Wear on your Mexican Jungle Tour PART 2.

Plus Size Fashion Tips

Even if you are a “plus size” woman, you can now enjoy that visit to the mall to find just the right outfit for a special event. In the past you may have had the unhappy experience of discovering that the prom gown or party dress you wanted wasn’t stocked in your size. Finally, clothing manufacturers have gotten the message, and you have a new world of style options waiting for you. Nevertheless, you must still take your body type into account if you want to find a dress that makes you look truly terrific.

Plus size women generally come in one of three basic shapes: apple, hourglass, or pear. Apple shaped women carry their weight mostly around their abdomen, and have little different between waist and bust measurements. Pear shaped women carry most of their weight in the hips and thighs, and hourglass shapes distribute the weight about evenly between the bust and hips, and have a larger difference between their bust and waist measurements. Wearing a dress suited to a type that you’re not could mean that it’s too tight in one place, and way too loose in another.

Remember to go with the size that fits your measurements, and not the number you think you should wear. Manufacturers make clothing so differently that the size number means almost nothing anymore. Consider structured undergarments to smooth out the line of your body under your gown. This will prevent lumps that distort the line of the dress.

Full-figured women have heard for ages wearing black is a must, in order to appear smaller. Black agrees with a portion of us very well, however there are those who yearn to dress in color, and if you are the sole individual in a group dressed in black, you will be more likely to stick out! Throw out your completely black outfits and dress in colors if you desire. It is pointless to attend special occasions resembling a governess. Just don’t forget to maintain equilibrium among color choices and analyze them as you build your outfit.

It’s a good idea to try on any outfits you are considering before buying them. Make a point to bring the shoes and undergarments you will be wearing with each outfit so you can correctly gauge fit and hemlines. Wearing the wrong bra can completely change your look from a “do” to a “don’t.”

Lastly, do not fail to consider visiting the alteration shop. If you encounter a great outfit that does fit quite right, it may just need to be taken in a little bit. The neighborhood seamstress or tailor can make any required changes. Fashions are intended for a nonexistent perfect body. All you need to do is make them fit your body.
