“I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore I want them to turn black”
-“Paint it Black” by The Rolling Stones.
Whenever I go for shopping either online or to stores, I see almost same clothes and accessories everywhere just with different tags and prices! Most of my friends and relatives complain and you might have experienced the same or you might be blinded by shiny lights of big brands, the second one is more probable! To me it seems, the big brands want to paint everyone in the same colour, metaphorically.
As Phoebe from the popular sitcom series F.R.I.E.N.D.S said, “It’s all mass-produced, nothing is authentic, and everyone winds up having the same stuff.”
There are these big brands (not including luxurious ones but the ones those are available to masses) such as Zara, H&M, Forever 21, GAP who produce almost identical clothing & accessories, and that even at lower prices in developing countries and sell at higher prices in developed countries; misdirected by false marketing & advertisement people end up buying them anyway. In a way, they do not have a choice or they are just unaware of other options. People tend to trust the brand in the name of quality, but what they do not know is the fact that how companies play with their psychology. Marketers and advertisers are vary of basic human needs and fears, and we end up buying products we do not even want unconsciously!
No need to despair though! Thanks to technology, now the whole world is connected. E-commerce and Online business is within reach to anybody and in a cost-effective way now. Independent artists and fashion designers now can sell their unique, colourful, artistic and creative products to anyone, anywhere in the world. There are such clothes, accessories and art available that you might not have even imagined before getting one for yourself. There are thousands of real artists struggling to get their creative work out, we shall explore this hidden world.
What do you think? Would you go for unique, colourful, artistic and beautiful clothes or same stuff available to every other store?
