I know I write a lot of clothing comparisons from luxury clothes to high street brands, so I wanted to do something a little different. ‘What I see in Fashion’ – (soz Brooklyn)
Shopping is any girls love affair, online or in store it’s the feeling, the power of being able to transform yourself into a magazine inspired world. Where one swipe of a card and you can walk away with Italian leather, or cashmere jumpers, so soft you can’t leave until your clutching the glossy bags in your hand. But once the warm glow of the stores are behind you, the vision disappears, and the vivid images of you taking on the world through your luxury purchase disintegrates. Into a overly priced bland jumper- soft, goodness yes. But visionary, no. To be Fashion, you must control the instincts of human comforts in clothing, you have to see fashion as a possession, a beautiful individual design that will make you, you. Its got to be a raw passion not a comfort blanket. That expresses your individuality, not uniformed fashion where your all pushed into dressing alike.
When you next open a magazine, be inspired by the beauty of fabrics and craftsmanship, take in the styles and bold expressions the catwalks create. So when your in the store where beauty is all around you, but not yet on you, your persuaded to remain safe and shop for your comfort zone, not your personality. The store should be viewed as the library of clothing, only in fashion books are always judged by the cover –
“To me, clothing is a form of self-expression – there are hints about who you are in what you wear.”
