In the grand scheme of things, none of it really matters.
We obviously all love having the opportunity to participate in this industry, but no one should lose sight of the fact that fashion is pretty trivial in light of other issues. There's too much fucked up shit and too many interesting things going on in the world to devote yourself solely to clothing.
Not to be corny or altruistic, and not to make the fashion industry sound special, but like anything it should be kept in perspective with other goings-on in politics, philosophy, and culture. If you're really blocking out everything else in life just so you can figure out how to copy the trending silhouette of Autumn / Winter 2013, then you need to take a step back. No one's obituary should ever read, "He died as he lived: freezing his ass off in line for a Supreme drop."
