The history of Valentine’s Day is obscure, and further clouded by various fanciful legends. Over the centuries, the holidays evolved, and by the 18th century, gift giving and exchanging handmade cards on Valentine’s Day had become common.
February has long been a month of romance. It is the month associated with Valentine’s Day celebrations. Valentine’s Day may fell like a holiday forced on us by the greeting card, jewellery. But the truth is that we have accepted it because we recognize and value its purpose.
Love that never inspires romance is stagnant and stale. Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to ignite existing relationships with romance and love with an added dose of romance and fashion yes! Fashion, will result in a stronger and satisfying relationship.
Fashion online presents “MY BLUE VALENTINE”. Red has always been the colour tagged with this celebration. This year fashion online flips the button a notch by introducing blue.
Blue is the favourite colour of all people. Its natures colour for water and the sky, but is rarely found in fruits. Blue has more complex and contradictory meanings than any other colour.
These can be easily explained by its shades. The colour blue ranks so high as a favourite colour that can’t go wrong when used; it is sharply refracted by the eyes. It exhibits inner security and confidence.
With rising number of fashion designer and fashion shows, it is obvious that the fashion industry in Nigeria has grown immensely. People are showing more interest and love in it.
So as an online fashion PR and marketing firm we are dedicating two issues of this online magazine every year to this industry. As always, we go beyond the obvious to deal with issues facing the fashion and textile industry by creating original content that suits this modern day and age and our cover subject captures this perfectly.
