Samuel BeckettJames JoyceIn fashion, the avant-garde style is defined through its personality. Many designers have been asked to define this style and they all added a certain term to define it: sophisticated, mysterious, intimidating, intriguing, striking. The accessories have to be very modern, unusual, but elegant. All clothes should be matched with hats, belts or shoes in the most unusual shapes. Somehow, this style does not refer only to fashion. It means a mixture between fashion and art. The avant-garde fashion teaches women to have a certain attitude.Fashion
