Why is it important to compare different designers before finalizing purchases for the refurbishment of your wardrobe? Well, fashion is a matter of creativity, personal choice and perspective. It is impossible to quantify fashion in absolute terms. What may seem fashionable for one individual may seem dowdy for another. In such a scenario, comparing the work of different designers is the best way to assess which designer has better grasp over the latest fashion trends.
If you adopt a generalist view, any and every individual will be ranked as a good fashion designer in your eyes. This is because each and every individual can design a dress that will look good on at least one person on the planet. The point is that you cannot adopt such a general approach when assessing different designers. Fashion is contemporaneous.
You must choose a designer who is dishing out the hottest trends in recent times. On the other hand, a big designer who has had a bad year or two and who has been unimpressive with work can be chosen if the price tag is low.
Another important reason why you should compare designers is the high cost involved. You cannot think of purchasing designer wear every now and then to refurbish your wardrobe, can you? The basic idea behind designer wear is to create an exclusive line that will suit your features and body shape. In such a scenario, you would do well to compare the work of different designers before choosing the one that you feel is the best fit for you.
