How many times can we kill trends?

90% of websites, magazines and fashion blogs
announced that trends in fashion are officially dead.

But what does it mean that trends are dead?
What acctually they are/were? 
And furthermore, were they ever alive?

Trends are some generalizations.
Simplifications of what people choose to wear.
Yes, what YOU choose to wear.
I know that many times you could have heard
of a dictatorship in fashion,
but be frank, you are the one who makes all the decisions 
concerning your closet.
Free will, they call it.

So, in a nutshell,trends are based on what we like 
and what we pick in the stores.
That is where the word "trendy" came from,
as a definition of someone fashionable.
And what does fashionable mean?
According to google, it is someone who follows latest trends.
And this is where the spiral begins.

But, all in all, we are the ones who go to shops 
and make the decisions of what to purchase.
We may or may not go with a suggestion 
of fashion magazines.
And even don't get me started on the choices we have.
Nowdays, with the globalization the number of designers 
and shops you can pick from is almost infinite.

I belive that trends in this form will never die.
We like to simplify things and probably always will seek geralizations 
of what people wear to get some inpiration.
But on a personal level, trends will always be just trends,
which will be changed, transformed and made our own.
And that is the beauty of fashion.
It is mostly personal.
