"I don't pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford."

In his song about the veteran designer, opluent fashion is intoxicating bliss for Jay-Z.

The principle isn't a luxury only celeberties can appreciate. For the everyday shoppers, high class fashion is something to admire. Flipping through pages of Vogue can be a guilty pleasure in itself, ogling pictures of beautiful clothes worn by the most beautiful people.

Wardrobe warriors find themselves guilty of lust, gawking at store windows. Or perhaps it's pride, flaunting big-ticket spending.

"I personally love high-end fashion no matter what designer, said Twin Valley junior Katie Griffith. "The beauty of a new fashion trend originating from someone with a big idea is absolutely fascinating.

"I would personally never spend $4,000 on a handbag or $600 on a scarf, but I admire the beauty of them," Katie said. "It's amazing the new concepts these creative individuals conceive."

It could be the flashy design or the elegant touch of the designers themselves. Even if you haven't purchased a $4,560 pair of alligator tassel loafers, you've certainly heard the likes of fashion's elite consisting of Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Rolex, Chanel, Armani and Versace.

Among this prestigious pantheon of fashion gods and goddesses is a luxury market that will exceed $300 billion in revenue by 2020, according to Bain & Company.

Fashion is undeniably a means of self-expression, but it can also become a flashing indicator of status. Kate Middleton dons a look of royal splendor while Harry Styles embraces the flair of flamboyant prints. These idols inspire us to dress to the nines, but becoming an empress of garments or a duke of attire comes with a hefty price tag.

"Why?" is a question that always seems to be buzzing. Why would a satin dress cost more than $1,000?

In a 2009 interview with The New Yorker, Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz explained.

"It is so much work," he said. "Doing a collection for me is almost like creating a vaccine. Once you create the one vaccine, then you can duplicate (it) for nine dollars and ninety-nine cents. But see if you can create it for nine dollars and ninety-nine cents, and the answer is no."

High-end fashion is the creative juice that sustains everyday fashion. It all comes down to the trends, such as high-waisted shorts and trench coats. Fresh out of 2016's New York Fashion Week, look forward to Spring 2017's influx of bright florals, sorbet shades and sporty styles, according to Harper's Bazaar.Read more at:formal dresses online | cocktail dresses
