(Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2014 – Fashion Gone Rogue)

As the high fashion treadmill trundles on, with New York fashion week kicking of the Fall/Winter Ready to Wear 2014 shows (what you will be wearing in 2015? Blah, who knows!) it all seems rather yawn-some.  The same big name designers putting out some interesting and knockout clothes (Karen Walker LOVE, Proenza Schouler COMPLICATED LOVE); the same old street style coverage (which Style.com and Tommy Ton do BEAUTIFULLY) its all a bit predicatable.  New York is currently suffering under an Polar Vortex, so this has shaken things up style-wise, but you may find yourself asking “what does it all mean”?!

Syndetics book coverWhy fashions matters.
Aha!  This wonderful new book by Frances Corner – the head of the London College of Fashion – might help.  Certainly a bit weighty in substance,  it looks at the social and economic impacts of fashion and it will help you understand fashion’s place in the world, putting it in a much wider context (than the internet ha ha!)  Sometimes you have to stop and assess, take it all in and learn why leather midi skirts/slogan tees/platform boots are SO important.
