The Transformative Power of Clothes
I recently read an article at Glamourtunist about the healing power of fashion. It really resonated with me.
"Given all of the research and benefits of art therapy in the healing process," Dominique Michelle Davis writes in the piece, "there stands to be a lot of advancement in promoting the therapeutic benefits in the world of fashion. In a culture shaped upon promoting unrealistic standards of beauty, there lies an opportunity to use creative expression in the healing process, but we are starting to hear more about the conversation of how fashion can be healing."
Wait, what? Fashion can be healing? Things as superficial as clothing, accessories, shoes and jewelry can help us with our deepest issues? Actually, yes.
