1. ) Refereeing to highland rape, rape is a horrific act, why are magazines allowed to romanticize it and put it in advertisements?

Yes reap is an awful thing that could happen to any women and Alexander McQueen received so many critics from his highland rape fashion show. Showing models wearing dirty ripped clothing, but yet we see magazines advertise romanticize version of rape, why don’t we get the same reaction towards those advertising. When magazines advertise these kind of advertising people don’t see it as the romanticize version of rape or rape, the viewer would just see it as a sexier advertising for a specific brand. We are allowing magazines to romanticize it because the models that are in the magazines do not look like rape victims the way McQueen portrayed then in his show, the models in the magazines look very polish. If magazines would portray the models as rape victims in a romanticize version I think it will get if not the reaction that McQueen got it would get something similar.

2.)  Is it possible for clothing to provide the type of protection McQueen try’s to creative by making women look “so powerful no one would dare lay hands on them?

Yes it is possible for clothing to provide the protection McQueen tried to create by making a women look “so powerful no one would dare lay hands on them”. Not only by the way a women is dress.  but also the confidences a women has in  finding their inner confidence to portray the outfit she is wearing, “is the outfit wearing you or are you wearing the outfit” that is what would make it possible for clothing to provide the protection McQueen tried to create.

3. ) Are the opinions of the viewer or designer a more correct interpretation fashion?

My opinion would be no. The opinions of viewers or designers are not the wrong or correct interpretation of fashion because every person interpreters fashion their own way. Every viewer and every designer has a different way of viewing fashion and they all present their views differently. Just like every person has their own views of fashion they also have their own style. If the designers and viewers interpretation of fashion are correct then every one would look the same and no one would have their own style.

4.) Why is it appealing to sexualize or eroticize fashion?

Is appealing to sexualize or eroticize fashion simply to get consumers to porches their product. Not only do they use sexualize or eroticize in fashion they also use it in promoting fast food in the example of the Carl’s Jr. commercials. Another simple answer Sex sells.
