Fashion is not a waste.
Fashion is a kind of art, Only that the art is on clothing. Art is shown in the process of producing, Designing and matching. The sense of beauty visually and the appreciation of it is important. Without this humanity may not survive with happiness. Colours and patterns and express one's emotion and affect others.
People can wear simple clothes, Some may say. But the way we choose our outfit can show our personalities. Moreover, Respect can be expressed with a formal outfit such as suits and dresses. Fashion is an opportunity for others to understand you.

"Fashion is a kind of art, Only that the art is on clothing. "

Not really.
Fashion is a popular trend, Especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior.
Trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing.

So if you wear a victorian era type of dress, It is already out of fashion.

In order to follow fashions you'd need to waste more fabric than there already is(especially as somewhere in africa they can't even afford clothes), Or else you will fall out of fashion by wearing something that is old instead of new.

Hydroflasks, Tank tops, Hoodies, These are fashion.

Old tuxedo, Christian capes, 1800s shirts, Aren't fashion because the earth is over that.

Because fashion always tend to go to where the industries have recently discovered, There is always new production, Meaning your old thing can't be re-used as fashionable. Also, What is at one point the manufactures promotes fashions of plastic bra or such? That will be an issue to the nature.

Why do you have the rights to have arts over something that isn't needed? Look, Paintings are existent because they are intended to be filled with paint, In an artistic manner. Clothes are meant to be coverage, Protection of one, Not to be the waster influenced with fashion.

Everybody has their own standards, So fashion is a mass movement. At one point there will always be people who thinks this trend is stupid as s#! T. In fact because why everybody is not the same, Why are there fashion at all?

"Colours and patterns and express one's emotion and affect others. "

Fashion doesn't need to exist even if this is true. You can have your own designer for you that has very elegant colors but not following the fad. Fashion is another way to reduce your uniqueness if you aren't adapted this when the fad began(for example a girl in my school forced me into this fashion, And I can't escape it for months)

Fashion doesn't equal to elegance. Compared to that, Wearing King James' cape is still less wasteful than wearing nowaday's clothes since KJ's cape is reusable(even if the government doesn't let you) while one year after fashionable clothes' release they will be referenced as old, And no one cares it at all.

"People can wear simple clothes, Some may say. "

Yes indeed, All should wear simple clothes. Clothes are meant for protection. I don't want to live to the day where wearing Vietnam war soldier's suits are fashions. Clothes are not for beauty. THEY ARE FOR PROTECTION. This is another reason why getting naked is bad.

"But the way we choose our outfit can show our personalities. "

As opposing to what you said, Most people doesn't obey fashion. Me wearing a super edgy clothing that no one knew what the mother of earth is this doesn't make me the start of fashion.

"Moreover, Respect can be expressed with a formal outfit such as suits and dresses. Fashion is an opportunity for others to understand you. "

I get what you are saying, But nice clothes doesn't always mean fashion.

"that musicians are a waste"

Music is supposed to be art. Clothes are supposed to be protection.

that's what you think, But that's your subjective opinion. It's a profession related to the arts; with that logic you could say that musicians are a waste, And you could say the same about artists because eww who wants to look at a painting anyway?
