When we hear the word bohemian we can come up with so many different ideas of what that means. Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits, and because they can have an extremely wide range of different tastes in music, fashion, art, literature etc. they are usually very creative people. Above all bohemians are optimists.
The term Bohemianism emerged in France in the early nineteenth century when artists and creators began to concentrate in the lower-rent neighborhoods, then slowly the term became part of our everyday use. In modern usage, the term "Bohemian" is still applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. The "Bloomsbury Group", in England, which formed around the Stephen sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf in the early 20th century, are among the best-known examples. Looking back on the fashion style of "boho chic" in the early years of the 21st century, the hope of looking nomadic, free spirited and non 'bourgeois" was the goal of the bohemian, which brings us to today's world of expression through fashion by wearing bohemian and vintage inspired clothing.
