In 2000, logomania set its sights on the world of fashion once again. The trend of displaying designer logos on one's clothing, shoes and handbags has surged since, reaching a new all-time high. Not since the 1980s has there been such a logo-obsessed society that seems not to mind being walking billboards.
Throughout history, women may have been credited for sparking trends, but it's typically men who are the driving force behind the designs. Major fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel, Burberry, Dior, Gucci and countless others are currently headed by men. So it's baffling why the average man is not targeted more in terms of fashion advertisements and magazines.
As each seasonal change settles into its typical temperature, designers jump ahead to the next season and take fashion magazines with them. While sitting near a roaring fire and sipping cocoa, one stares blankly at glossy pages that display the latest in beachwear. In the midst of Independence Day and heat advisories, one is accustomed to cranking up the air conditioning as models sport the latest parkas and ski wear. This standard occurrence is known to spark new trends and old frustrations all at once.
College is expensive enough without the added cost of having to get dressed for it. Not everyone deems it necessary to buy overpriced clothing and shoes in the vain attempt to appear "posh."

With a poor economy dragging along and traditions to uphold, many are turning to the Internet's bargains to fulfill people's wish lists, with eBay being one of the major sites visited.
The resurgence of certain trends is what makes fashion redundant and, at the same time, marvelous. For a designer to change the cut of yesterday's hem and drape it on today's models, deeming these items as "must haves" is almost laughable.
When most relationships celebrate their 20th Anniversary, even the most contemporary gift-giver follows in the tradition of giving bone china and platinum to his or her spouse to represent their love.
At the intersection of 18th Street and California Avenue, there are a number of small eccentric shops and restaurants that boast uniqueness and individuality. Kaur Three is one of those places.
You can only imagine how many young women fainted at the sight of the new Kate Spade boutique that opened on M Street. The 1,200 square-foot space houses the famous collection of nylon, leather and suede bags that have become a staple in almost every woman's daily life.
Back to school shopping can be just as important-or unimportant-as college itself. The first day (or week, depending on your personal needs and wants) of school shapes the first impressions you leave on both professors and classmates, and for many it is found through the power of spending.
I always doubt myself. No matter if it's coordinating an outfit, writing this column or going for a run, there's always a part of me that points out what's wrong, what's missing. Even going into my senior year at AU has me worried. With the state of the economy, it's hard to picture landing a job post-graduation with great pay and finding an affordable place to live.
On June 9, Art Cooper, GQ's editor in chief for more than 20 years, died of a stroke that he suffered on June 5. He was 65.
