  I've learned alot concerning my personal project.  Did you know that a "Fashion Trend" is actually called the "Bandwagon Effect?" I honestly did not know what that meant until I read it. It had said, "Bandwagon Effect, also known as social proof or "cromo effect" and closely related to opportunism, is the observation that people often do and believe things because many other people do and believe the same things." Which meant that we ourselves are like minipulated to follow the crowd, it's like a program that's stuck in our head. "People tend to follow the crowd without examining the merits of a particular thing." I very much agree with this, people follow the crowd to be treated "cool" or whatever. "Fashion Trends" are usually linked to phycology. Many have even run tests, and because humans follow the crowd and what everyone else is doing. I also found out, that "fashion trends" are always in fashion. Some in buisness & politics as well, which I found very interesting.
