Vaughan Mills announces top trends for fall 2005

Aug '05
Leading retailer Vaughan Mills made announcement that Shania Twain's eclectic fashion sense 'don't impress Canadians much'. The country-pop diva joined hockey personality and fellow Canadian Don Cherry at the bottom of a celebrity style ranking according to a poll conducted at Vaughan Mills - Canada's newest shopping centre. The survey of 300 men and women uncovered some of Canadians' favourite fashion inspirations and top trends for fall 2005.

Perhaps it's his plaid suits and her leopard-print ensembles that landed Don Cherry (6 percent) and Shania Twain (8 percent) in last place among a list of male and female celebrities that Canadians look to for fashion inspiration. Top honours went to Hollywood's fallen golden couple Jennifer Aniston (28 percent) and Brad Pitt (48 percent), who ranked as best dressed female and male celebrity, respectively.

While it may be entertaining to follow the hits and misses of celebrity fashion, most respondents (52 percent) actually get their fashion inspiration from clothing stores, fashion magazines (29 percent), and friends (27 percent), indicating that trends do influence people's fashion choices. While more than 40 percent of men and women surveyed said they felt more confident and attractive when wearing the latest fashion trends, the latest styles may not flatter everyone.

"More than a quarter of respondents admitted that they have worn something trendy just because it was in style, not because it looked good on them or they liked it," said Andrea Tushingham, Director of Marketing and Chief Fashion Trend Analyst for Vaughan Mills. "Just ask anyone who owned a pair of stirrup pants or sported a perm in the 1980s and you'll see how trends can make fashion victims of us all."
