Magazines, bloggers, television….they all tell you what you must have in your closet. For me, however, fashion is much more than what you’re “supposed” to wear. It’s a means of expressing yourself in a free manner; it’s a reflection of your own personality. Therefore, I’ve carried out a small survey in which I’ve asked several people to define their favourite clothes – the garment they really identify with and consider…
