FASHION QUOTE: “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” by Oscar Wilde, Illustration by Tina Wilson

Oscar Wilde is best remembered for his exuberant personality, consummate wit and his infamous imprisonment for homosexuality.

His novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and his play “The Importance of being Ernest” are considered among the great literary masterpieces of the late Victorian period, and continue to find an enthusiastic audience even today.

There are so many clever quotes attributed to Oscar Wilde. To single out one over all the others is quite impossible, but I have decided upon two:

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”

Perhaps this was during his time with The Woman’s World, when he would have noticed the frequent changes of fashion.

Oscar has numerous quotes about women, life and love. One that I think well reflects his wit and sense of self:

“I can resist anything except temptation.”
