Science and The World

Posted by Mohit Sharma, community karma 31

We consider every phenomenon in this universe as some form of energy change. Same happens in the clothing fashion trends, when a new trend is introduced, some corresponding old fashion itself fades with time, but keep in mind that every process in the universe is cyclic, so after certain time(may be couple of years or decades), even wearing styles repeats themselves.
This proves :
*No form Energy is permanently lost(law of CONSERVATION OF ENERGY).
*Cyclic Nature of Universal Events.


Do you agree...???

Let me clarify your question. First, you are saying that the "rules" of fashion mimick the laws of energy conservation. Second, you are saying that all fashion is cyclical and that nothing is ever lost because of the conservation of energy.  

I disagree with the first part of your discussion because fashion is not naturally occurring. Fashion is driven in large part by the choices of purchasers at major stores across the globe. Those purchases are driven by what is offered by designers at a variety of Fashion Weeks throughout the year. None of this is driven by science or energy or anything other than the whims of a bunch of artists. Further, the idea that a fashion goes dormant is completely different from energy always being present. 

I disagree with the second part of your argument because many parts of fashion have been lost through the ages. When is the last time you saw a woman walk down the street in a dress that is supported by a whale bone corset and features a skirt that is wider than any doorway you have ever seen in your entire life? This doesn't happen except in moves, and we call them Period Pieces. 

Further, much of fashion is dictated by necessity, what is available, and one's station in life. War time fashions in the United States have varied dramatically. The "Little Black Dress" staple of women's wardrobes came from mourning tied to World War One and then the Spanish Flu worldwide epidemic. Everyone got so used to wearing black it became not a part of mourning but a normal thing to wear all the time.

You are actualy draging from the theme of the query. In the support of my first part, which you are feeling wrong- it is universally accepted fact that everything which existed or exists in this universe is nothing but some form of energy, may be visible phyical substances/objects or invisible radiations/waves. So fashion here has been considered as series of events/phenomenon and remember that there is nothing everywhere except energy and time. For the second part, where you disagree- you might have heard, when energy changes from one kind to second kind, some of its part is lost in other third kind. That's why, when you are considering repetition of fashion, don't think of exact xeroxing, definitly some minor changes will be encountered due to energy loss concept.
