Fashion’s High School Drama: queens, geeks and all!

fashion high school drama

Gossip Girl may be a thing of the past but High School dramas will never go out of style! Our fashion industry, in many ways, is like a high school, where there is an unspoken rule to follow the social hierarchy and aspire to one day reach the top of the pyramid. Well, that rule applies to everybody except for those on top of the pyramid. Now gather around you inquisitive readers, gather around. We’ll tell you all about the fashion clique; there is a lot of ground to cover.

The Queen Bee

In simple words, she rules! You can deny it but you can’t defy her majesty and her power. She runs the industry and everyone follows. I think you know who we’re talking about.


The Freshmen

They are the new kids on the block who are weird at times but too new to notice. They definitely have no clue what is going on but hey, you’ve got to start somewhere!


The Popular Kids 

Who are they? Nobody really knows but we all want to get invited to their parties and have a permanent hash tag on their Instagram profiles. Even a picture of their happy meal gets a gazillion likes on Facebook and we are waiting to understand that ourselves.


The Goths/Emo

Their life is in an abyss of darkness. Well that is exactly how dramatic they sound and if we must say it, time to lose the attitude guys.


The Theater Geeks

Think drama. Now think more drama and further beyond that we have your theater geeks. They’ll put up a big show and stay on top of the headlines. They will make sure that you end up talking about them, one way or another.


The Class President 

He’ll make sure everyone is in line and following the rules. He is the “director” of the industry. You know who this is. Was it even a question?


The Jocks

They have great bodies and no careers. Of course, the male models are the jocks in this high school. Why do they do what they do? Why do they travel in packs everywhere? I guess the answers to all these questions will remain buried with their prospects of a decent livelihood.


The School Nerds 

The front benchers that everyone loves to hate but hey, they’re the only ones in the industry with a decent vocabulary. The bloggers have it really tough though; it’s not easy keeping a straight face through the hell that is happening on the catwalk.


The Rich Kids 

They are in a league of their own. They’re seen driving around in the nicest cars, traveling first-class to the most exotic vacations and keeping a very expensive pet designer around to keep themselves grounded and fabulous. We all love their lives and secretly wish we had them.

The Foreign Exchange Students 

Do you remember that creepy kid in the corner of your class that has no idea what’s going on? And in this case he’s running his own fashion house from his living room. Sure, these guys have money but who cares when all they want to do is take a selfie with Fawad Khan and make clothes even Maleficent would say no to.
