Some channels always endeavor in presenting them so eloquently that many people get susceptible to that way of living. Moreover, for many media this has been their bread and butter and hence very frequently they post articles about latest scenario of fashion by taking interviews or arranging fashion shows.

However, adopting new fashion has always been used to serve a purpose of getting stand out from the herd of people. Nevertheless, many legends of society, e.g., business tycoons, scientists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists earn attention in public or in media because of their knowledge and versatile salient features of virtues of discipline, and hard working etc. rather than fashion that hung on them or hairstyle with they appear.
