Fashion Week is an intimidating concept. Sometimes I feel as though I can’t keep up. I veil my insecurities with remarks like “I don’t follow the trends,” but really I relish in the stuff. I love the creative direction that goes into runway shows, I love the drama of seating charts, I love being wowed and underwhelmed, shocked and even offended at the art on display. What intimidates me is the fashion omniscience everyone immersed in the world seems to have. I can only speak to what I believe looks beautiful, what compliments a figure or personality, and what inspires me. When I wake up in the morning, images run through my head as I sift for an outfit. While I like to believe I have an individual flare about my styling, I have to admit I draw a lot from…really everything.
You always bring what you know or what you’ve seen to a canvass. This season, I’ll be bringing Dior. I have zero Dior money, but ever since laying eyes on Spring RTW last fall I have been dying to incorporate this disciplined yet playful elegance in to my daily choices. Raf Simons dances over a beautiful yet fine line of whimsical minimalism. If I were to pin point an aesthetic that echoes through my wardrobe choices it would be Dior. Why bring up last fall’s news now? Because real people pay attention to spring trends…in the spring, not the end of summer…right? And between the austere nature of Kinga Rajzak’s navy and black dress in pleated tulle and the new age ball dress finale, I’m completely sold! The contrast of the warmth gleaming from the floral nylon skirts paired with clean black feels familiar and comfortable because I LOVE good solid opposition in outfitting. This collection is old news, but I still dream about it sometimes…so I’m making you look at it anyway. Kloveyoubye
