This is a discussion landscape regarding the au courant in fashion, including all accessories (jewellery, hats, shoes, handbags, et al.) paired with its art and historical origins, placing an academic slant on the usual "hollywoodesque" fashion blog. I am obliged to answer any questions, comments or suggestions one may have regarding today's fashion, its history, museum or runway news, or perhaps questions on what and what not to wear. In posting a subject everyday, I will comment on contemporary fashion news and critique a particular ensemble, pairing it with a historical element. Everyone who wants to learn about fashion is welcome. From questions and comments regarding bridalwear to fashion icons, such as the Graces (Kelly & Mirabella), as well as general questions regarding taste and trends, let's discuss! Remember, we are all students of fashion.

So Many Shows, So Little Time

I need to do some serious catching-up from Sat, Sun and still view everything from today. I am seeing LOTS of narrow belts and strapless or assymetrical evening dresses with draping pulled to one hip. 60s/80s inspired color-blocking seems to also be popular. One thing I can say is that Peter Som did not dissapoint, starting the day off brilliantly. His pieces are gorgeous and then their is the every classic, Carolina Herrera. I am posed to watch Pamella Roland at 4pm, then Max Azria, again (his own line this time), and one of my favorites, Ports 1961 this evening. The sky may be gray in New York today, but these collections have put my mood in a sea of blue! Please tune back in after for my critical analysis and please comment!!!! Cheers!
