  Seguro que has oído hablar de los famosos propósitos para el nuevo año, esos que nacen cada 31 de diciembre y que desaparecen misteriosamente a finales de enero. Siempre sucede lo mismo, la ilusión de comenzar un nuevo año nos llena de energía para afrontar nuevos retos. Estos retos pueden ser muchos y variados, pero ¿te habías planteado alguna vez alcanzar nuevas metas en cuanto a moda se refiere? Probablemente este fin no este escrito en nuestra lista de cosas pendientes, pues es algo inusual, pero también es algo, que, al menos por una vez, merecería la pena intentar.

2011 is about to finish, but a new amazing year is waiting for us. Probably, right now you are already thinking about what you like or dislike about the last year and how you can change it. Maybe like me, you are writing your New Year resolutions or maybe you are just thinking of changing your mind. An idea: what about changing your concept of fashion?
I have found two quotes in the ‘State of Independence’ fashion report from the January issue of ELLE UK that are inspirational enough to start with. Use them!
“Style is an attitude. It’s not what I wear, it’s who I am. Today I’m a Miu Miu girl in green and white checks. Tomorrow who knows? That’s the joy of it, the art of it, the love of it.”
“Dress for yourself. Not for him, not for fit in –for you. There’s no such thing as a bad day for a Gucci dress.”

17 of November. Gran Vía. Eight o’clock in the morning. Something is attracting all the attention in Madrid. A dress. Just a dress? No, a Versace’s. Versace for H&M, how a great news. Days and days surfing the net in order to find the most exclusive dress, a dress that, luckily, you will find in the shop the 17 of November. You will look at it, you will touch it, you will buy it. Enthusiasm, this is the word. After years of leafing magazines, at last you can touch one of your favorite designer clothes, though the quality is not the desirable, though you pay extra coin just for the label. But, it is worth it, isn’t it?

A lot of controversy is around every of the designer collections that H&M prepares every year. Quality, price and fame are some of the elements that people around the fashion world debate every time these collections are out. Quality is an important issue when buying clothes since the important thing is the way clothes are made not the price. But, what happens if, despite spending more money, the quality is not the appropriate? Unfortunately, the quality of any of the dresses Alber Elbaz designed for H&M last year is not so different from the one of the basic t-shirts we all have in our wardrobes.

All of us would always like to know where trends come from. It is surprising to see how fast trends come and go, and how they change depending on…who? There could be countless ways of creating trends, and all of them are valid. It is easy to think that all fashion trends come from catwalks, then fashion editors, celebs and bloggers follow them until everybody on the street is influenced by these new trends. But, is it actually that easy? Probably not.
