For designer Rami Kadi, bugs have always been an irrationally feared set of living things. It may seem odd to bring that up in this setting, talking as I do about the Attire language, but it is relevant. You see, Mr Kadi decided to confront his fears in 2015, by lifting the image of his fear out of his subconscious, and placing it onto his clothing. He took himself through a process of release from their unnamed sway over him, by transforming them into something other, something beautiful. He diminished their power. He made them his servants, in the pursuit of the lovely. Its a strong position to take.
Fear manifests for us in an Attire sense all the time. "I cannot wear such and such a color, shape, cut, pattern." Really? Is it really wrong for us? Or have we stayed away from it because others said so? Its a tiny fear, but these small things add up, until we are ruled by them constantly.
An exercise to try would be to go out shopping and try on things not normally picked. Pull colors and styles that are suspect. The transformation that occurs when we allow ourselves to move outside the narrower confines of the expected can be vast, revelatory, and freeing.
Take the power back from your own fear.
