How to Avoid Buying Instagram Likes

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. When you buy Instagram likes you’re in reality simply purchasing a robotized and automatic reaction, not ones from committed clients. Indeed, the one post that you purchased the likes for will have a huge amount of buzz upfront, yet it resembles a light switch. Once the budget in your account runs out it has returned to low engagement and a uninterested user base. That is the issue with purchasing likes on Instagram – it’s not practical. On the off chance that you were able to ensure that every one of your posts is going to garner likes you’ll probably have already spend a ton of money.

It bodes well to assemble a methodology for building an Instagram adherent base naturally as opposed to buying likes from Instagram bots. Rather than encouraging some blackhat outsider, you’ll really be building a group worth thinking about. Embrace it. Despite the fact that those bought likes look great, there’s no feeling of achievement. Once you’ve really done the diligent work of building a devoted base, individuals you’ve never met will begin to wind up some portion of your regular day to day existence. The bizarre thing is you’ll even notice when they don’t show up on a post.

In case you’re beginning an Instagram account and you need it to be fruitful then you ought to consider the greater part of your choices. It’s workable for you to buy Instagram likes however that isn’t generally suggested. Your best alternative is to develop your account naturally. In case you’re new to this, I’ll quickly clarify it. Natural development comes when clients locate your online posts while just normally flicking through the web or their app. On Instagram, for example, natural development will originate from clients sharing and advancing your record for you. It’s a quite peculiar thing to get your head around, yet you ought to concentrate the greater part of your endeavors on your clients – they’re doing a large portion of your promoting, and it’s free.

Things being what they are, in what capacity would it be a good idea for you to begin? Well in case you’re starting with no outside help then you have to first make sense of a few objectives for your account. It doesn’t make a difference if your account is for a man or for a business. Numerous organizations utilize Instagram as a methods for associating with clients, and I’m more open to utilizing that as a reason for clarification. Pick various followers or likes you need to have in seven days, yet be straightforward with yourself about what you can accomplish in such a short measure of time. Release that week by and check whether you’ve achieved your objectives. In the event that you have, at that point basically give yourself a month to get 6 times more than that initially number. In the event that you can’t achieve the objective in a month, at that point give yourself one more month to achieve it.

 

Finding a Place in Fashion Careers

Fashion careers are perhaps some of the more glamorous professions on the face of the planet.

What’s more glitzy than working in a world filled with bright lights, beautiful people, maximum press coverage including television and print, and an adoring public?

When we say “fashion,” the word brings to mind images of color, luxury, exclusivity, street style, places like Paris, New York and Milan and names like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Marc Jacobs or Giorgio Armani.

When we say fashion careers however, the industry isn’t just limited to the people who actually come up with the designs and those who wear them, although they get the most attention. If you’re interested in fashion careers, have had the proper education, as in earning a degree from an accredited fashion school or have taken classes, and have undergone some training, here are a few specific jobs you may want to explore in the wide, glittery world of haute couture.

Fashion Designers

Fashion designers are the people behind those prestigious fashion shows, the ones who are responsible for iconic red carpet looks, the names that make certain types of clothing popular. They come up with ideas, sketch them, transfer these sketches onto fabric then produce them for the market. Big labels usually have one or two main fashion designers who can delegate the tasks of drawing and designing to their staff. Fashion designers may choose to create their own clothing line or join forces with more established names.

Visual Merchandise Designers

If you have an eye for public fashion displays and for artistically arranging garments and accessories, this is the area in fashion careers you may consider. Visual merchandise designers take care of window displays, props and accents during shows and in retail shops, styling mannequins and the interior of clothing stores and are in charge or marketing and advertising campaigns.

Personal or Fashion Stylists

There are people who prefer working on a one-on-one basis compared to dealing with groups of people. If you think you’re one of them and have a high level of confidence in your fashion sense, you may consider becoming either a personal stylist or a fashion stylist. Personal stylists give people advice on what to wear, how to look during special occasions, which accessories and colors go best with their skin tone and body type, which hairdo and make-up they should wear and so on. They work closely with an individual, combining brand names and styles to suit the person.

Fashion stylists, on the other hand, are those who get to choose what clothes, accessories, hair and make-up are worn for magazine features, television and print-ad advertising, music videos and concerts and other public events that models, actors, actresses and other public figures like politicians are required to be a part of. Also called wardrobe stylists or celebrity stylists, these are people who work with a larger group in fashion careers composed of hair and make-up artists, fashion designers themselves, photographers, directors and editors.

Significance of Fashion

It is a new month and last month’s wardrobe is becoming useless and outdated, no problem, you can try out new trends in the market, that goes well with you taste. Apart from the typical stripes we are used to, you can try out something else, add matching skinny scarfs, and your outfit will be fabulous. With the cold weather, the designer has developed collections of clothes that fits the nature. Apart from helping you express yourself and revealing your unique inner personalities, fashion also makes you comfortable, change your life, shows sort of creativity.

Also, it is through fashion that we communicate to people, the mode of dressing we put on tells more about us, the response in style depends on the message associated with your choice of dressing. The information ca either be acceptable or an outcast to the outside world, particularly on those that has personal identity, the celebrities, politicians, preachers, and the young generations. The fashion also is an expression of social, cultural and religious values. Fashion is like art, just like an architecture that gives his development d the shape and the design that he/ she desires, so does to the fashion. It means that clothes are non-verbal forms of communications. Fashion also do have an impact on our perception of an individual, for example when someone puts on a suit, it is more organized and comfortable, and in turn, the suit changes the gestures of that person and the way he speaks. Or when someone puts on jeans and T-shirts the perception is that such person is feeble and liberal.

Fashion is a show of creativity; we judge someone’s creativity depending on the type of choice of clothes he/she puts on more often. But you must be wondering how fashion improves someone’s creativity, but, for instance, when we are putting on the clothes, we consider several factors, one of them is that, does the dress match with the event we are attending? Or we also would want to wear to look like a particular celebrity or a favorite person we know. Thus we can say that if we can be creative in our clothing, then we can also be creative in all aspects of life including school and music. It is a fact that human beings are very excited when they do something new out of their creativity, and they become successful if you wear a cloth that no one has put on before and people appreciate you start being confident on your creativity.

Another fascinating thing about this fashion is that it is important in religions and culture, for example, the Muslims ladies have a unique way where they cover up their faces. That is taken as fashion because the dress is put on for a purpose. Therefore, we can say that if people puts on clothes from their beliefs, it can strengthen the faith, since the fashion reminds them of their religion. And it also shows the children that it is vital to be unique from others.

Why Are So Many People Caught Up In Celebrity Fashion Trends?

Many people follow certain celebrities and pay close attention to the fashion choices they make. In addition to wanting to know who they are dating and where they are traveling to many people also want to know what their favorite celeb is wearing as well. Some people will go as far as to try to dress just like the celebrities.

People who fall into this category of wanting to copy their favorite celebrities fashion choices have a variety of reasons for doing so. In the remainder of the article below we will go over some of the reasons that people give for this practice.

The definition of celebrity suggests that one is well known and popular and in actuality many of these people can’t even lead a normal life because they can’t go anywhere without being mobbed by both fans and paparazzi. If you asked them there are many celebrities who would like to change this so that they could have some semblance of a normal life. On the other side of the coin there are people who crave attention and think that if they dress like a celebrity that maybe they will get some of that attention as well although in the vast majority of cases this just isn’t true.

When you see celebrities on television talk shows you see that they get many compliments on their fashion choices and in fact in a lot of cases you will see a lot of people copying their style after an appearance on a show. Since most normal people who have average lives and jobs don’t get complimented in this way some actually crave it. This is why many people will watch TV fashion channels and subscribe to fashion magazines to keep up with the trends in celebrity fashion.

Some people may think that this practice of being fascinated with celeb fashion trends is unhealthy but in reality there is nothing wrong with staying informed about it. The problem is when a fan becomes so obsessed that they actually want to try to make themselves look just like the star they are adoring. In addition, just because a particular style looks good on the celebrity doesn’t mean it will look good on you. I can remember when Madonna was hot when she first came out and girls were dressing in the sexy styles that she wore. Some looked good, but others should not have been making the attempt. I will leave that as is.

Another issue is that celebrities have more money that the majority of the population so they can afford to change their clothing styles more often than others. Most of us would quickly run out of money trying to keep up with all of the changes. One good thing that has come out of this is that many lower end designers such as those who create fashions for department stores are copying the styles and pricing them more affordable for the general population.

Why I Hate People Who Ostracize Fashion?

A year back, while evading my Science textbook (these were the horror days before the Boards), I came across an article (I’m not naming any names) by the columnist of a reputed British publication. It was headed “Why I Hate Fashion”. Following was an article outlining why the writer has long since been plagued by the ridiculously high standards and expectations of the fashion industry and it’s ever changing trends. It ostracizes the industry wholly and waxes eloquent about the useless-ness of fashion media and the lack of talent of the designers.

Everything about the article pin points to the direction of what I detest about people who make judgments without understanding the intricacies. They have deluded themselves into believing that what Hayden Penetierre donned to the Oscar red carpet or what J-Lo stocks her closet with is the crux of the idea of style. Fashion, as a way to express your individuality may not be what translates into the consumerism of Topshop and Selfridges but for many of us, it’s an art form that we swear by.

Admittedly, there is a shallow, superficial side to it but as Robin Givhan, the Pulitzer prize winning fashion writer once said and I quote “fashion is not innately superficial, the way is portrayed is”.

And why is all the criticism aimed at fashion? Doesn’t Vodafone lure you into snagging the latest prepaid scheme, LG urges you to splurge for a new flat screen, Hyundai wants to buy a new car, Penguin wants you to read the work of the new bestseller (and you’re sort of obligated to do so, just to sound relevant and informed), John Mayer wants you to buy his new album, food critics want you to bring home this kind of lettuce and another kind of grapes and the list is endless! At the end of the day, the overriding fact remains that fashion is what you make of it.

If you choose to be influenced so deeply by advertisements of supermodel Coco Rocha sequined hot pants and then sit in a corner and brood and sulk about how you don’t have those endless legs or that captivating a face then that eventually pin points towards your hidden insecurities and not the “evil” of the fashion industry.

Fashion, much like everything else, is really up to you. Indulge in it, or don’t. But don’t generalize and proclaim that anybody that believes in it as a cause is heading towards their own execution and is thoroughly unhappy “on the inside”. 70% of the professionals working in the industry are not a size o and not 6 feet tall and, are by no means the size or, even to an extent the height that a multitude of digitally modified fashion magazines depict. So, just because I like to decipher the meaning of novel designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s inspiration of Japanese horror movies to make their exquisite dresses and sweaters, you can’t influence me and you can’t make me feel any less capable of having a smart conversation.

Do me a favor. Step outside and go to Paris, Madrid, New York, Tokyo or even Delhi and take a look around at the men and women who take out time from their evidently busy schedules to put together a creative outfit! Whose accessorizing is no individualistic, you know something about them just by observing what they’re wearing. They’re real people; people with jobs, families, pets and interests.

It’s sort of comical and quite sad that the writer is completely misguiding the hundrers who read her column and is trying hart to revive and reiterate the tired old myth that fashion is for the frivolous, stupid and intellectually devoid. I have friends who are Physics majors and still love Haider Ackermann. People with hopes, dreams and wishes, something that women like the writer cannot take away from them.

“Fashion is, perhaps by necessity, in a world of its own – one that only rarely overlaps with anything resembling real life. This fantasy and exoticism is part of its appeal, of course.”- Vince Aletti

To people such as her, I say, go read some Robin Givhan or some Suzy Menkes, some Cathy Horyn and more recently, even some Tavi Gevinson. Watch a live Gareth Pugh or Alexander McQueen (R.I.P) show. Read Pigeons and Peacocks and i-D and Numero and Lula. See the work that Richard Avedon did, not solely for the fashion industry but for photography as an art on the whole. How he introduced movement into still life and created magic with couture and a camera. Read about the Mulleavy sisters’ completely unglamorous background. I could go on. If, after doing all this you still believe that fashion is for the brainless then you’re proving that you, yourself are veering towards that territory.

“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn.”- Gore Vidal

I think every industry does exactly the same. I think people are more vicious about mobile phones than how people dress. Every ad will show some arch Indie type with an ironic afro walking along an idealized landscape with a retro guitar ballad behind it. I do not believe getting a Sony Ericsson phone will make me whimsical, cooler nor my friends good looking. And every ad for a car shows a suave, chiseled jaw chap in a European designer suit with no tie casually slinging his jacket over his shoulder as he remote-locks his car, having sped around some gorgeous city on one wheel with suspension like bungee ropes. I do not believe owning a car will make me that (well, obviously not male, but you know what I mean).

“Fashion is teated too much as news, rather than what it is, what it does and how it performs.”- Geoffrey Beene
I find it pretty silly that the very same people who talk about fashion being a consumerist evil, designed to bring people to their knees, broke and insecure are the ones who refuse to understand fashion in it’s more alternative forms. To invalidate the work of Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Y, and suchlike is to insult their undeniable artistic talent.

Nobody who spent a truckload on a Botticelli or a Monet would be deemed stupid, but someone who does so on a Prada or YSL piece is undeniably so?

Let’s take a more common, everyday example. Lots spend thousands on “season tickets” for sports. But if I spend the same amount on shoes, then I am frivolous and materialistic.

This ideology that everyone interested in fashion is doing the designers’ bidding of the season is exactly the kind of inverse snobbery that pisses the hell out of me. Everyone has some form of fashion incorporated in their lives. Heck, Meryl Streep as the icy editor in chief of Devil Wears Prada (entertaining movie but totally misguiding, again) summed it just about right:

“This… stuff? Oh, so you think this has nothing to do with you? You… you, go to your closet and pick out, let’s say that lumpy blue sweater because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know that that blue is not just blue, it’s not turquoise or lapis, it is in fact cerulean. You are also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent, wasn’t it, who did cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it’s sort of comical how you think you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry, when, in fact you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you from the people in this very room. From a pile of… stuff.”

People who wear combats when clogs are the “it” shoes and carry pale pink bags when studs are all the rage represent the radical chic, truly interesting side of fashion that these people are sadly, unaware of.

And the masses of chick lit books produced everyday may come across as hideous to many, but you don’t see people running around screaming “OMG literature is the root of all that is wrong with the world!”

It’s insane that people continue to say that consumerist fashion is worse than other commercial capitalist industry.

It’s hugely unfeminist to condemn something that has helped women across the world take massive strides in society, as well.

‘I don’t understand it, therefore it’s wrong’ + a dollop of self-righteous smugness = fashion is for the brainless sheep and the industry is horrible.
