Walking out of the house looking decent is a “normal “ thing. Walking out of the house looking as if you’ve just stepped off of a page in Vogue is a “fashion week” thing. Every year, twice a year all of the fashion enthusiasts, fashion lovers and fashionistas put on their best outfits to show off their style and strut their stuff throughout the streets of New York, Paris, Milan & London. There are photographers everywhere snapping pictures of what they perceive fashion to be, what it is in essence, and what it is evolving into. Whether it be to attend a fancy fashion show or walk the dog, this is the most important time of the year if any to walk out of the house looking the best you can at all times whatsoever.
I am absolutely obsessed with the classic pictures I see from NYFW (New York Fashion Week) of absolutely drop-dead gorgeous girls, with mind blowing bags, and traffic stopping shoes, simply dressed to kill! It Those girls and this special week inspire me to always take the way i look into consideration. When I was younger I looked at fashion week photos and wanted to be just like the people I saw, I wanted to have the fancy clothes and flashy shoes, and be effortlessly fabulous! I wanted to make a statement. I thought to myself "She looks like a an everyday normal girl, but she's fabulous" and that was amazing to me. The hidden art that I failed to realize then about this special week in fashion is that, fashion has nothing to do with the person wearing the clothes it's all about the artistic expression that is implied through them. That is one of the reason why i fell in love with this special week. It makes me feel and understand the many artistic avenues of fashion, what it is in various forms, and what it means. Whether it be high heels and pretty dresses, skinny jeans and sneakers, or regular people like you and I ---- Fashion is everything!
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." -Coco Chanel
