Antidepressant Fashion Trend Zombies

February 6, 2013

We are a nation of zombies ” by Karen Warnick – The Independent in WMIcentral:

Zombies are supposedly the walking dead. But I like this definition better: “A Zombie, in its broadest sense, is a person who has lost his or her sense of self-awareness and identity, and cares only for the destruction (and often consumption) of any human around, no matter what the circumstances, or cost to his or her self. They make up for this loss of intelligence in sheer numbers, as the state of zombieism is almost always contagious, and spreads like wildfire.”

Does that sound like people you know?

She goes on to consider increased use of antidepressants, sleep aids and general overmedication. She also connects this to criminal violence and direct-to-consumer advertising.

why are we taking more drugs (besides the advertising), why are we more depressed and anxious, why are we having more trouble sleeping?

Meanwhile in fashion:

TV3: “Patricia Field: Trends are like zombies” quoting an interview German blog Les Mads.

zombie patricia field

Patricia Field has likened trends to “zombies” that don’t want to die.

Patricia Field says trends are like “zombies” in the fashion industry.

The 71-year-old is best known for creating the award-winning fashion on popular TV series Sex and the City.

and

“All trends have one thing in common; they don’t want to vanish. They wander like zombies through our fashion history. As you said, you should follow a trend solely when there is a statement behind it. If you want to wear what everyone else is wearing, go to the Army and get yourself a uniform.”

Consider in connection to HBO’s zombie “Girls”.
