Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Fashion is the science of appearances, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
This quote suggests that fashion focuses on external appearances rather than an individual's true essence. It implies that the purpose of fashion is to create an illusion or a desire to be perceived in a certain way by others. Instead of encouraging individuals to be true to themselves, fashion seems to prioritize the idea of "seeming" or presenting oneself in a desired manner. In essence, it highlights how fashion can be used to cultivate an image or persona rather than reflecting one's authentic self.
When I grew up, in Taiwan, the Korean War was seen as a good war, where America protected Asia. It was sort of an extension of World War II. And it was, of course, the peak of the Cold War. People in Taiwan were generally proAmerican. The Korean War made Japan. And then the Vietnam War made Taiwan. There is some truth to that.
