While fashion is sometimes perceived to stand in the shadow of other design genres, not to mention the fine arts, I look to the runways season after season to feel the fantasy and dream the dream. Pattern, color, shape, the occasional bling — all are mixed together with a dose of attitude to sell garments with unabashed pomp and circumstance. With Fashion Month just behind us, I have chosen some of my favorite looks from the runways and tired them on... virtually (watch out Elle Woods!). For their artistry I would rank Hussein Chalayan, Comme des Garcons, and Thom Browne high on the list. Wearability is another issue. But why be so pedestrian? You don't ever want to wear your favorite painting, or maybe you do...
Would you be seen in any of them? All of them??
Oh, and apost about fashion week would not be complete without a view into the world of street style. Bonafide celebs and celeb wannabes alike, all are subject to the eyes of the fashion photographers' discerning eyes. Do you like me as a blonde?
