- To celebrate their achievements and contributions to community, family, marriage, and childcare.
- The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian
Men’s fashion plays an extremely important role in all our lives. It is a way to dress, a way to please, and a way to leave a lasting impression. No matter what the style is, men’s fashion at some degree or other has always been ruled by history and tradition.
The 1800s to 2017, from long tailcoats to double breasted jackets, button-down shirts and rugged denims men’s fashion has no doubt evolved a great deal; nonetheless the essence of classicism remains unchanged. Men are more often than not dressed to the nines.
Women’s fashion on the other hand, is much more fast, has a lot more choices and a lot more styles. Each culture having a distinct way for women to attire themselves, not always comfortable as an old shoe.
