I think society is driven by fashion because now almost everything is about weather is not you look good or bad. Or wether you are wearing last season's clothes.

Society isn driven by fashion, and its idiotic to think it is. Society is driven by stuff like capitalism, commerce, trade, money, that kind of stuff, certainly not just 'fashion', lol

Fashion drives society today because a lot of people are too worried about how they look to think about what is going on around them. They can be super selfsentered because they "have" to look perfect.

"Fashion drives society today because a lot of people are too worried about how they look to think about what is going on around them. They can be super selfsentered because they "have" to look perfect."

Well this will be an easy win.....

1) Not everybody are worried about how they look, just about every guy in school will put on jeans and a moderately interesting shirt when they go out, and just about every adult puts on the same outfit when they go to work too. So fashion definitely does not drive society because well over half the population dont even care what they wear when they go about their day

2) The only people who really give a sh*t about fashion are obsessive teenage girls, and super-duper gay guys. Not like 'Daniel-Tosh-Might-be-Gay' Gay, I mean like 'Elton-John-and-Liberace-having-buttsex-on-a-rainbow-gay' gay. Fashion doesnt drive society, it only drives teenage girls up a freaking wall

3) People in third world countries, Africa, South America, India, etc literally dont have the income to worry about fashion, and since just about half the world lives in still developing countries, your claim that fashion somehow drives those societites is idiotic and unfounded.

4) Money drives society, you can get people to do what you want by offering them a $100 bill then you can by offering a shirt by Calvin Klein that is worth $100.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited leaving Con's arguments unanswered. Forfeiting is a conduct violation, but Con's condescending insults are a more serious conduct violation. Pro would have done better by resolving, "Fashion is too important in society."
