  1. Yes, I am a fashion conscious. The most part of fashion I like, but there is another part there I don’t like at all, like the clothes of fashion magazines. I have my personal style, and I think that is importante, because if you follow the fashion of others, you just be like, another person, you are not diferente at all and I think that be diferente is good. Fashion is not importante to me, I think that what is important is wear comfortable clothes and don’t wear clothes for just be pretty… I don’t have favourite clothes, I can say that I have favourite acessories, but clothes… Not at all. For exemple, if I go out with my parents I just wear a pair of jeans, a boots, and a normal shirt. But let’s talk about acessories… I love acessories, but my favourite is NECKLACES. About my favourite colours, I think in the clothes are black… I don’t know, most people think that black is boring, but I think the opposite. I think black is poetic. I don’t have any opinion about designer clothes. If do clothes it’s what they like, for me is good. I think that for people that want to be famous, the body image is VERY important, because they can be most easily picked for another people. But for us, the people that is not famous I think that body image is not important, just be what you are.

  2. Fashion is very important if it means diversity, inspiration and creativity. I always try to be fashionable without spending too much money and without becoming obsessed. Able to combine the colours of the clothes we wear, is already part of fashion. I use fashion to express myself, because the clothes we wear define who we are and our moods.
    Fashion to me means feeling comfortable with the clothes that I wear every day. We don´t need to wear expensive clothes to be fashionable, they have to be comfortable and the people who wear them have to feel good about themselves , as is my case. Fashion has the power to transform our image.
    I do not have a personal style, I like to wear clothes that suit me well and as I am not very tall and I am thin, I choose to wear neutral colours and sports clothes to keep a low profile.
    My favourite clothes are jeans and sweatshirts and sometimes I like to wear sunglasses to impress. Apart from the glasses that I wear once in a while, I do not like most accessories. My favourite colours are blue, gray and black and most of my clothes are that colour.
    I think that designer clothes, are very cool, stylish and of the best quality, but are very expensive. Most people cannot buy those clothes or the best known brands of trainers such as nike or addidas, but these can be replaced by other cheaper brands, without losing the quality and the style of each one.
    It is important to have a positive image, because when we get to school or any other place, the first thing our friends or other people look for is our clothes. I like to dress well, but without overdoing it in the colours or the accessories.

  3. I am fashion conscious, but definitely fashion is not the focal point of my life. I think I have a personal style. I like to look cute, but my essential goal when I pick my outfits is to be confortable. Sometimes I like to dress up a little bit more but my favourite clothes to wear are jeans and sweaters, especially if they are blue. Blue is my favourite colour, but I also like to wear other colours. I personally think designer clothes are really expensive, and I don´t think that they are worth the price. It’s really important to have a positive body image because if you don’t you end up not feeling good with yourself, you will end up not feeling good in your own skin. Dressing the way you want, the way you like, the way that makes you confortable, builds up your confidence, because at the end of the day, the best way to feel good is to show people who you are. People don’t like copies, be original, be yourself.

    I think it’s important to have a positive body image because some people sometimes think that they are very fat or very ugly and have a horrible body. They can even develop diseases such as anorexia which is the most common.
