Fashion Experience

Suzy Menkes said on Vimeo in an interview on Fashion blogs that......
“You cannot teach people something they have not experienced” She was talking about Fashion blogging so obviously she was talking about the fashion experience.
This made me think – how does one actually experience fashion or rather on which level must you experience fashion to have an opinion
? Could one be thousands and thousands miles away from a designer show or shop and experience the fashion she is referring to? Is reading a fashion magazine a fashion experience – can one learn from looking at a magazine? How does the fashion she is experiencing differ from that we are experiencing in South Africa – on which level are we?
How does one communicate across different levels of fashion experience
Is she right?
