Fashion Twist: Divergent



When I first read the dystopian book Divergent, I was amazed by the way the author Veronica Roth divided personalities to five main, as well as dominant, identities or factions.
- Candor : the honest, wearing only black&white.
- Abnegation : the selfless, wearing just a grey palette.
- Dauntless : the brave, wearing the rebel's color black.
- Amity : the peaceful, combining the red&yellow in their outfits.
- Erudite : the intelligent, must bear atleast one blue item.
Later on, I assimilated entirely the idea of being different, and at the same time undoubtedly usefull.

If I were a character in this fiction, I would definitely be a Divergent. Why?? 
Well because, I might be a serene girl (Amity), however when provoked, I can easily metamorphose into a fierce warrior (Dauntless), without forgetting to use my brain( (Erudite).

I can't wait to see the movie, and to find out how it will be like the wardrobe of each faction.
In the meantime let's have a close look to the spring/summer runways of 2013, and forecasting which designer had the right guess.

Which faction you think you belong to? 
Are you a DIVERGENT with multiple talent?
