Fashion has been identified as a source of social distinction having more pertinence in preoccupation of postmodernism with the self. Within this particular framework, the self has been identified and considered as a project of reflex, in which choices regarding fluid lifestyles have been enabling individuals for creation of own identity, rather than the acceptance of markets that are traditionally inherited like filial networks or class status(Van-de-Peer 2014). In addition to this, by a framework related to hyper- consumption, there is consumption of objects for the symbolic meanings behind the construction of this identity. In the consequent sense, the status related to an individual is tied up inherently within the ability of consumption (Shearer 2013).
Major orientation of consumption and immediate social visibility by fashion helps in providing a potent site to explore the cultural taste and postmodern identity under construction. Traditional understanding about the utilization of fashion in the form of social tool has a major focus on the perspectives of social class. As taste expression analysed by Bourdieu, it has been argued that the taste of culture reflects the struggles for social status or social recognition. The practice to recycle clothing has had a prominent history across western cultural background, and specific levels of shame have been seen following the utilization of recycled clothing because of it salience to mark poverty (Petrizzi 2014).
Since recent times, however, fashion of youth has highly tapped within the previous corner in disadvantage across the market for the creation of large youth population engaging with the practices of recycled clothing voluntarily. Under empowerment with flexible schedules and disposable incomes, significant shares of rummage for consumers of recycled clothing by several outlets is as same as antique shopping, for obtaining unique pieces at an amount of bargain price. In cities all across the globe, there are several shops stocking collectable recycled products, serving the large populations of youth and middle class.
The utilization of vintage clothing voluntarily has been ignoring the threatened social judgment that has been in existence being non-conform to the trends of fashion. The gathered recollections in the field of recycled voluntary users do not tend to be confirming the rejection of popular fashion under social pressure, but it also expresses the utilization of clothing as a way for constructing authenticity and identity distinctly in the utilization.
In this particular sense, vintage clothing helps in providing a unique avenue for the exploration of these dimensions because of the problematic understanding about reluctant practices based on social class. The transformation of vintage fashion as an occurrence of voluntary youth helps in revealing how sense of taste and distinction is internalized by individuals within their own lifestyle (Fırat 2013).
