What does gold stand for in fashion?
Luxury? Power? Money? Elegance?
Why do kings wear crowns?
Why do we prefer to wear sequins as a huge fashion statement?
Golden is a magical color, it’s warm and reflects light, so it can be perceived as if it gives light to what surrounds it.
Here is some golden inspiration:
John Galliano used gold as a basic color during his haute couture colection for Dior, during spring summer 2004, when his inspiration was ancient Egypt:
