Have Faith! Religion Inspired Fashion

And so it is Sunday...
The calmness of the day is soothing.
My religious foundation brings about guilt that I should attend mass frequently.


This posting is related to religion + fashion.
And what does it equate to.
Not only how they coexist in a functional way,
but what is the symbolism in relation to style?
Is it an exhibition of our religious beliefs? Or an expression of a cool fashion statement?


Most artists, rockers, and celebrities wear a cross embellished on their clothing,"blinged" out crucifixes around their necks, or tattooed on their body. 
What does this represent?
Are they Catholic? Or on a spiritual journey?  Protection?
Does it somehow contain the real meaning of the cross to the designer + consumer?

I don't think the "marriage" of religion + fashion is offensive.
I am curious that this spiritual symbol never goes out of style in fashion inspiration/ industry.
Thus getting more popular through the generations.
I think that wearing a cross has different meaning according to the wearer.
Hopefully, it is a positive message.

I don't over analyze or judge.
I have questions that won't always get answered. 
Seeking, thinking, and creating patterns of thought.
Religion + Fashion = Faith-filled style?

I appreciate freedom of religion and freedom of expression.
No matter your beliefs,
as George Michael sang in his popular hit, ...
You gotta have Faith.
