Fashion.....What Is It?

Many of us think that fashion applies just the clothes we wear, but in actual fact it can be applied to almost anything we do. Fashion is used to describe a means of expression. The terms "fashionable" and "unfashionable" are used to describe something that does or does not tally with the current popular mode of expression. Fashions can apply to many fields of human activity and thinking, including those such as architecture, music, speech, pastimes, etiquette, politics, and technology, to name but a few.

The broad use of the term fashion when applied to clothes was used in the past as a means of people showing solidarity with other people by their choice of clothes. However, in more realistic terms, today Modern Westerners have a wide choice of clothes available to them, and wearing what is currently in fashion is unlikely to be exactly the same as someone else. Nowadays what a person wears is more likely to be a reflection of their personal tastes and character, than wanting to imitate somebody else. However, when celebrities or people in the public eye start to wear new or different clothes, people tend to copy them and a new fashion develops, therefore the original term may still apply today.

Fashion is something that varies tremendously, not just in different eras, but also in the same generation but between different ages, social classes, professions and by location. The term "fashionist" has developed in the 21st century as a way of describing someone who is dedicated to fashion, and the development of this term is indicative of the role fashion and trends play in the contemporary age.

Fashion by its very nature, is something that is continually changing, and when applied to clothes this happens even more quickly than in other areas of social behavior. What is an interesting phenomenon in regards to clothing fashions is that whilst something quickly becomes out of fashion, it can become fashionable again at a later date when these clothes come back into fashion again. This is something that is seen predominantly only with clothes, and not with other areas of design or human actions.

Every part of ones appearance is subject to fashion, from makeup, hair, length of skirts, and accessories, nothing is left untouched. Fashion houses and their fashion designers, as well as their celebrity clients are key in determining how clothes fashions change and how quickly. They are also the main force behind determining if something is in or out of fashion and if to bring something back in to fashion. An important part of fashion is fashion journalism, and this can be found in every magazine, newspaper, and television article around, as well as in fashion websites and blogs.

This is demonstrated by the fact that Vogue, founded in the US in 1902, is now one of the longest-lasting and most popular magazines in the world, and has spurned international editions around the globe. Despite the advent of television and widespread internet coverage, press coverage is still seen by the fashion industry as the most important form of publicity in conveying the new fashion trends to society.

Over 1,000 Stores and Counting....Get Rebates Too!


Over 1000 stores and counting. Yes, you can shop almost anywhere with MyPowerMall. Plus get paid rebates on everything you buy. What can be better than that!

  • It's not MLM.

  • It's not Network Marketing.

  • It's not an Affiliate program.

  • It simply doesn’t fit any standard business model that most people use to achieve financial freedom.

Our Founder & CEO, Ginny Dye, spent years working in the MLM industry as a leader and trainer. She walked away from it in 2002, discouraged by what she knew to be true – that 97% of the people who join an MLM will fail. She simply could no longer introduce a company to someone, knowing that most of them would fail. It bothered her too much to see people who were excited and committed to changing their lives fail because they were working within a system that was not created for them to truly succeed.

With the creation of MY POWER MALL, she knew she had a way to create success for anyone by simply harnessing the power of online spending. She had already spent almost five years creating a powerful computer system that she was using in other endeavors. MPM is simply an additional way of using her $500,000 system to help individuals create financial freedom.

MPM is a 9-Tier Shopping Rebate System.

  • It is completely FREE – with no cost to whoever wants to join MPM.

  • There is nothing to sell. Each member simply shops on the 1000+ stores on their own Power Mall, with shopping rebates paid through 9 Shopping Tiers on every purchase made
    from our millions of products.

  • There are none of the “Qualification Games” that make success so difficult to obtain in other business models.

  • There are no meetings or presentations to learn.

  • Every member can achieve significant financial income within the first 3-4 Shopping Tiers, with real wealth coming as it continues to grow.

  • The MPM Business Model is built on one main concept – KEEP IT SIMPLE!

People are invited to have their own FREE online Power Mall. All they do is shop and then invite others to have their own FREE Mall. As people shop for things they are going to buy anyway, everyone receives a % of the shopping rebates.

MPM has a primary principle that guides every decision Ginny makes. Everything has to be Win/Win. It’s only a good decision if it is good for everyone it impacts. MPM went through several different versions before Ginny was convinced she had created the model that would ensure success for everyone.

Get YOUR own Power Mall Today! Get paid for shopping and earn an income too! It is totally FREE!
