Although we consider fashion a way of expressing ourselves, I feel as though people have taken it to the extreme. In the process to become something that is socially more accepted and admired people have started to lose their identity and who they are. In the example of the video young girls having double eyelid surgery. For them fashion seems to have become a obsession to look perfect. Its all about becoming more and looking more western. That starts from the facial features. I personally think that the way there features are is perfectly fine. Its what defines them and who they are. Why lose your identity to become something your not? . Having all these surgeries for them is so common now that it has started to become a trend to get things of that sort as graduation gifts. I am horrified at the thought that the parents are encouraging to there daughter to go under the knife or take these injections to change the way they look. Its one thing to be influenced by the media, peer groups, or even society. But to know that the parents are involved a well is alarming. Fashion to be clothes and makeup and being able to show people your personality through your physical attire. With times the meaning behind that concept has changed as well.
