TREn’DS: Teens Reacting Effectively n’ Discovering Style

What: TREnDS is the voice teenage fashion never had. A voice that expresses what exactly teens want to wear, and not what they feel pressured to wear by popular culture. What makes TREnDS so effective is that it consists of teens reacting on behalf of other teens, allowing them to discover the true meaning of style and not the superficial, provocative face that fashion has become.

Who: TREnDS is a project for teens by teens. Initially set up by a current University of Toronto student, the club now holds committees throughout 5 cities nation wide. Our goal is to help teens realize that fashion isn’t strictly about the physical, but that it is a lifestyle as well. Indeed, the way we present ourselves physically plays a major role in that it should reflect the person that lies within, but that is only a small portion of the image TREnDS is attempting to portray. A part from the attire, fashion is also our personality. It is our intellect; our individuality. Fashion, in a nutshell, should be what makes us stand out amongst so many others.

How: By offering professional seminars on skincare, hairdressing and the fashion industry itself, TREnDS offers its girls a hands-on experience at improving their images and developping their personal styles. It provides them with the necessary tools needed in order to discover what suits them most as an individual, as well as what fashion should offer them as an age group. By discussing modern social issues, this allows the girls to feed their intellect and cultivate them furthermore, thus making the TREnDS experience a much more enriching one.

Why: According to a study held by Helga Dittmar, “it was estimated that between television, radio and printed advertisements, the average person is exposed to more than 3000 advertisements a day”, how can we possibly not be influenced? Between what’s “in” and what is said to be “so yesterday”, adolescents, being the most susceptible to this mass media, are constantly bombarded with choices to make, yet they have no say whatsoever as to what’s being thrown at them. This is where we come in. We want to end this unbareable silence, and give fashion the voice it’s missing in order for teens to finally set a trend...the right one.

“There is power in the beauty of a woman’s image. It is up to her to decide whether or not she wants to use it wisely.”
