The fashion world had changed in decade. The first impression of fashion was hard to catch for normal people and it is for the celebrities, royalties and wealthy people. However, almost everyone can reach the fashion if someone loves fashion nowadays.  What is happening in the fashion world? Why almost everyone can actually catch the fashion?
In these recent years, fashion industry is more competitive and diversified than before. There are a variety of designer, fast fashion etc. brands appareled to market. In order to keep and explore the market, different brands started to adjust their brand image.
For example, Givenchy is a French high-ended couture designer brand. It used to design haute couture to celebrities, politicians, royalties etc. Since Riccardo Tisci became the head designer in Givenchy, Givenchy had another new face to everyone. Tisci not only brought new blood to Givenchy, but also create the Givenchy’s street style’s clothing line.
More and more designer brand had developed theirs clothes for the daily wear instead of only for the party or important event. And there are some of designer brand had created their lower priced line in order to explore new market to increase sales and popularity.
