Clothes are not simple garments. They are not a mere exterior fact or a trivial masking of one’s body. Clothes are, first of all, expression of identity, visible statement of our most intimate and hidden inner reality. Clothes have always been the first and most immediate propaganda and communication tool. The purple of the Emperors of Byzantium and the extravagant looks of the current pop stars: fashion has constantly materialized hierarchies, social statuses or – more recently – ideas and systems of values. From time to time, the person wearing clothes or society itself had to identify with them.
