Fashion and Socialism Don’t Mix

The color beige is one of the biggest runway trends of 2019. Other trends include neon and animal print. Imagine if beige clothing was your only choice. And it’s not coming from the runways of Paris. Fashion and socialism cannot coexist because a socialist system forbids freedom of choice. Fashion is a means of expressing oneself and curating a personal style. How can we express ourselves if our only choice of clothing is equivalent to a minimalist 1990’s Calvin Klein ad featuring Kate Moss, where we all look equally miserable and malnourished? We need a choice! Shopping under a socialist regime is not an extracurricular activity; it’s a task. A person is lucky to receive bread and butter after waiting in line for hours. Forget about Chanel bags and trips to Sephora. There is no retail therapy without free markets.
