Humans are walking paradoxes, often contradictory in their actions. So often humans are told to pick their style and stick with it. Here, we say screw the rules. Make your statement. Life is an acquired taste, developed by passion and creation, sustained by fashion, music, and culture. The Fashion Paradox intends to amplify your life with inspiration and vision to expand your taste for life. So go ahead, break the rules. We won’t tell.
