WRITING TASK 2 (AC+GT):-
Some people believe that fashion is like art and a significant part of society, while others feel that fashion is a waste of time and money.
Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
The fashion industry today is important component of society and people’s lives. It is true that many people care little for clothes and scorn the importance that others attach to them, however, this does not mean that the significance that people attach to fashion is a waste of time and money.
When one consider that areas of the world suffer from poverty, disease and inadequate access to food and clean water, the emphasis attached to fashion by the developed world can seem out of proportion. Many people would contend that the resources put into developing and creating fashion would be more ethically spent on creating some level of equality in terms of the right to live a healthy and happy life. This point is hard to argue with. However, it is also true that people in the developed world cannot be expected to send all their spending money to people in need and that wanting to look good is an unalterable human trait.
The fashion industry is also like most other industries. It provides jobs and income to millions of people around the world and the money that changes hands generates taxes that contribute to the fabric of society. It’s not all just a question of trying to look better than others and excessive luxury. The high level of fashion is indeed a kind of art from and, like other art forms, there will always be people who appreciate it, want to create it and want to spend money on it. It is part of the development of civilization and this is not going to change.
I therefore feel that, although the gap between the rich and the poor sometimes makes it seem that fashion is a waste of time and money and an unethical use of resources, fashion is an important part of today’s society and economic output. Maybe it’s down to individuals to try and strike a balance between selfish greed and a more altruistic way of living.

So, when I found out that The Chandigarh Tigers were playing Football in a friendly match on 20th August, I made it a point to buy tickets s that I could have fun at the new Stadium. I must say that when I arrived at the 10-hectare Stadium, I was swept away by the thrill and flurry that filled the air. There were football fans getting ready to come in to the support the Home team. There were diners, shoppers families and the curious ones – like me all enthusiastic and impatient to visit our fresh sports icon.

What I found the most incredible was the sight of the city skyline. It looked glorious and everyone felt stunned at that moment.
