Depends on the context If you go to a private school with a uniform, perhaps you see your fashion as authoritarian If you wear whatever you want and see it as key to expressing yourself, then it's clearly freeing
I think there are tastemakers (read: big fashion houses, Bowie, Yeezy) to whom fashion is freeing, and to them it's their art or whatever. also included is that one weird kid you knew in college who sews his own clothes and wore weird prints that no one else seemed to get.
but for most of us, it's authoritarian, it's buying the trends. for us, fa doesn't personally matter to us. maybe we have aesthetic choices that follow the trend of the day, but it's not freeing for us. it's getting us to the baseline of what we think we should be toward the authoritarians project. is it really freeing to buy Hermes (or Kanye/APC)'s white t-shirt with a pocket, or buying slubby denim? or is it authoritarian?
the thing is I'm mostly okay with it being authoritarian..
