I. Lead-in:
- Glad to see all!
- How are you?
- You look nice today. Did it take you much time to dress in the morning?
Society places great value оn appearance and most people care about how they
look. Indeed, we often judge others by their appearance. However, there is danger
of placing too much importance on how someone looks. People spend too much
time and money on fashion. Should the way someone dresses be the most important
thing in life? Do clothes say a lot about your character?
I think it will be useful to discuss some of the problems and try to understand if we
should spend too much time and money on fashion.
II. Picture-based discussion:
1. Look at the pitures on the blackboard. (Слайд 2)
What do you think of the clothes the people in the photos are wearing?
2. Look at the pictures once again and let’s make a list of words to describe their
emotions. (Слайд 3)
-outrageous
-eye-catching
-trendy
-eccenric
-strange
-colourful and joyful
-extraordinary
-cool
I think some of the following activities will help us discuss these problems:
3. Why do you think some people wear outrages clothes? (Cлайд 4)
Look through the list of the phrases that can be used to describe the pictures.
-to look superb
-to look like he is full of dollars
-to attract attention
-to look extraodinary
-to look for their status
-to stand out in crowd
4. People’s choice in clothes has always helped to give others an impression of
who they are. Like a Rolls-Royce or a privite plane, fashion acts as a status
symbol. Someone's appearance can give us useful information about that person.
(Слайды 5,6,7,)
When we see a person wearing a suit, we suspect he is a professional. We can
easily recognize an ambitious business executive in suit and tie, an elegantly
dressed young business woman, punks or goths.
Do you agree with the statement that we can say a lot about a person by the clothes
he/she wears?

VI. While reading activities:
Many people are obsessed with brand name clothing. (Cлайд 8)
They say they pay for high quality. Others believe that you only pay for the
brand’s name and the product is no better than any others. I think some of the
following activities will help us discuss these problems.
1. Look through the text and say what the text is about
2. Read the text and choose a, b, or с.
Designer brands aren’t for me!
Although I follow fashion, I hate the phrase ‘must-have’. If I read that Egg
boots or Prada sunglasses are the latest ‘must-haves’, my immediate reaction is to
think, ‘Why must I have them?’ Why should I fall for the designer’s manipulate
tactics which are only intended to increase his bank balance at expense of mine?’
Designer brands, in general, are for people who are too insecure to trust their
own tastes. These people decide that everything at Prada must be ‘cool’, so I you
shop there, you can’t go wrong. I find it much more satisfying to pop into one of
the cheap chain stores on the High Street and buy a copy of the designer’s clothes
for a tenth of the price. OK, you have to use your skills to find the one garment in
three that looks great. But it’s worth it! It’s like finding a piece of gold in a river.
The find gives you immense satisfaction.
Which is why, as a survey done by a British banker said this week, young
people with money are abandoning the designer shops and buying their clothes
chain stores, second-hand shops and in markets. This is the best news I’ve heard all
weeks. It means that young people have the confidence to trust their judgment.
They are prepared to take risks to look individual and not mass- produced. That has
always been my shopping philosophy. The exorbitant prices in designer shops
leave me open mouthed. Even if I had the money, I would think of all the other
things I could spend on it.
1. The writer thinks...
a fashion is ridiculous.
b Prada sunglasses are 'must-haves'.
с designers just want to make a lot of money.
2. she thinks people who buy designer brands...
a are cool.'
b don't have good taste.
с are frightened of making a mistake.
3. She thinks...
a it's easy to find great, cheap clothes.
b you feel good if you find good, cheap clothes.
с the clothes in high street stores are better than designer clothes.
4. According to the bank survey, rich young people...
a now want to look different from each other.
b don't have as much money to spend as they used to.
с are now buying more designer clothes.
5. The writer...
A thinks the price of designer clothes is fair.
b thinks there are better things to spend her money on.
с would like to have the money to buy designer clothes.
VII. Group work.

used to discuss the problem. (Слайд 9)
2. People spend too much time and money on fashion. The way someone dresses

changes so quickly. Do you agree or disagree? Think of as many points for and
against following fashion as possible.
Good points about fashion
Bad points about fashion
VIII. Setting homework:
Write a ‘For and against’ essay on the topic using 200-250 words.
I agree that people spend too much time and money on fashion. The way someone
dresses shouldn't be the most important thing in life. It's also a waste of money as
fashion changes so quickly.

IV. While listening activities:
1. Listen to Claire talking about fashion.
Listening script
Fashion victims
(I = Interviewer; С = Claire)
I: So Claire, how often do you buy clothes?
C: Well as often as possible, actually. I'm a bit of a shopaholic. I don't spend nearly
as much time or money on my hair. And I rarely wear make-up. But, to me, clothes
are a really important part of my appearance. For that reason I do buy a lot of
clothes, yeah.
I: If you had more money would you rather buy lots of new clothes or a few
expensive ones?
C: Well, I'm not sure really, erm the cost of clothes is not really important to me. I
like something, I buy it. I mean I've bought second-hand clothes, I've bought
designer clothes. So I'm not sure about that.
I: How would you describe the way you dress - your style?
C: I wouldn't say I follow fashion. Erm, I think I'm quite individual. I like to find
clothes that no one else will have. However, I also like to be comfortable. I rarely
wear high heels and I hate being hot, so this affects what I wear.
I: Do you have a favourite outfit?
C: Well I mean it changes from time to time. At the moment I've got a favourite
pair of trousers that I seem to be wearing all the time, to everywhere, with
everything. Erm, they're very versatile so I can wear them with trainers or high
heels, erm different belts and tops. They can be smart or casual.
I: How aware are you of current fashion trends?
C: Not particularly. I mean, I don't watch fashion shows on TV and I don't read
fashion magazines. So really my only exposure to fashion is when ... when I'm
shopping or in the street when I see someone else wearing something. I think that
fashion is quite hard to avoid. You're often not aware that you are aware.
I: Is there anything that you wouldn’t wear?
C: Erm, I try not to wear anything that doesn't flatter me. I very rarely wear short
skirts because I hate my legs. I also nеver wear anything too revealing as that's just
not my style.
I: Whose sense of fashion or style do you most admire?
C: I really admire Cameron Diaz. I think everybody does. She's always very
confident in the way she dresses and I think that's the most important thing. That's
what fashion's about - having your own self-confidence.
I: And what about for a man? What clothes do you like for a man?
C: Well, I think it comes down to what I don't like men wearing. So it's things like
white socks, sandals and trousers that are too short. I don't like short-sleeved shirts
with jeans as all the guys wear them and they just all look the same. I like a man to
look good, but not as if he has tried really hard. That's not too much to ask for, is
it?
