It’s quite easy to write about fashion; talking about things that you’ve recently seen or bought; talking about someone who was wearing something noteworthy. But the thing that I really don’t get is runway fashion. Sometimes I look at the people who walk down the runway and think “who the hell dressed you?”. I mean, I understand that the the runway is for new designs and first glimpses of the new season’s look, but this? really?
If you can tell me what THIS is supposed to signify or be the beginnings of then i’ll give you a shiny star shaped sticker. This is one of thousands of images that I could have pulled off the internet that just emphasises my confusion of runway fashion; if indeed you can actually call this fashion.
My point is, if you’re going to go to one of these fashion shows then why wouldn’t you showcase your actual stuff? This might just simply be me being a bit ignorant about the industry, but seriously what is the point in showcasing pieces that you’re not even going to sell. Someone please, comment and let me know!
I love fashion; I love finding new things and my recent ‘thing’ is collarless shirts. Apparently they’re an old breed that have- like many things – come full circle and are now right back in. But if I was a leading retail store or major high-class brand, and I had the idea of bringing these shirts back, I’d showcase them and maybe some other new things that i’d be selling that year instead of something like, oh I don’t know… this…
Funny, I don’t recall finding this on the shelves of my local Topman.
The above photo is one of those which absolutely baffles me. Who sat down in this meeting and decided that what they were going to put on the runway was a jacket that looks like a pair of sleeves with a sleeveless concrete T-Shirt over the top and a pair of accordion trousers? And then who’s the person who sits in front of said atrocity and thinks “Hmmm, I might like to get something that looks like that”.
Even as i’m writing this post my mind is boggled by the idea. So i’m going to stop.
Don’t forget to comment, like this post if you did, and follow my blog so you know when I upload.
Until next time…
