I really weep as a result of the way our God-giving culture and tradition(as it has to do with fashion) is fast fading away or should I say being replaced by these  ‘modernized fashion consciousness’,borrowed from the Europeans.These calls for great concern as this occurrence has eating so deep into d system that even our elderly ones no longer spank their neighbours children as a result of their craze for these ‘modernized fashion consciousness unlike in the old days.


A vivid example is the craze for the latest fashion and rapid shift to whatevers in vogue.an example is that of the ‘skinny jeans syndrome’ that has ravaged the majority of our population. don’t still understand why our ladies and guys put themselves in great bondage by wearing these skinny ‘tight’ jeans.what the hell happened to straight cuts and boot cut jeans?.each time I see a girl on tight jeans, I  guess how long it would have taken her to put it on(an hour… maybe two)…I really don’t understand why one would subject herself to such stress and bondage all in d name of fashion.i even went as far as saying I wouldn’t get married to anyone who wear these type of  jean,but I later discovered that except I don’t want to get married I had better get used to d sight and idea, as over 90 percent of ladies wear them.well, just after I tried getting used to the sight of ladies and tight jeans, this ‘tight jean syndrome’ quickly and swiftly moved to the guys.

A couple of days ago I stood at my balcony and saw a couple wearing exactly the same type of jean(both of them skinny),with d guys own appearing to be slightly ‘skinnier’ or ‘tighter’ than that of the ladys’. it’s a really disgusting sight for me seeing a guy on tight jean. Guys on tight jeans don’t look cool,dont look scene …just gay.If guys can put on those,they can as well have a little hand bag around their wrist to go with it. I really hate skinny jeans with an unreasonable passion and can never be caught wearing those,not even in my dreams,they are very unflattering and I cant wait until this (80’s) trend goes away.i have trouble breathing just looking at those pants.i wish we can crawl back to the early 90’s when dresses actually flattered the figure without girls and guy looking like trannies with no style.

The worst thing about these ‘skinny jean madness’ is the fact that i cant seem to find a normal pair of jean in the market anymore.why do they think I would want to wear a pair of jean that I aiint really sure a 12yr old could get into?.It seems as though we tend to ‘overdo’ or ‘over copy’ the culture we borrow from the Europeans.cant we be independent and have our own integrity when it comes to fashion?.why would a young lady be ashamed of putting on her traditional dress and her head-gear (or gele as it is often called here) to a date with her boyfriend.i’ld actually prefer that to a lady putting on tights.i strongly believe that even the European guys wont be able to wear the skinny jeans being worn by the guys here.i begin to ask myself,why isn’t our traditional dresses being ‘copied’ or really used by these Europeans?.

The great works of our fore fathers and ‘fore mothers’, the God giving gift of a descent fashion culture and tradition,is about to be thrown into the abyss. All in the name of modernization and as a result of globalization. Hmmmmm……
