The point of fashion?

Reading American Vogue on the plane home (having watched The September Issue - a documentary starring Vogue Editor Anna Wintour and Creative Director Grace Coddington - on the way over). Why so much fuss about fashion? Anna Wintour's Editor's letter makes an interesting point: "Fashion ultimately empowers one to celebrate one's best self on one's own terms."
Also in the issue - a list of fashion blogs, very keenly read at the moment....They showcase this one by Mary Tomer which follows Michelle Obama's wardrobe and outings. And this by French fashionista  Garance Dore which apparently gets hundreds of thousands of hits....
I like my daughter's friend Molly's - not in Vogue as yet but previously mentioned in this blog as a pioneer up-cycler. Molly is going from strength to strength, as a reading of her blog will reveal.
Arrive back in Shepherds Bush with Therese's bag packed with Lucky Charms cereal, Oreo Cookies, Hershey Kisses, herbal teas and other food requests.
