The critique of Zac Posen in this Thursdays New York Times Style section is baffling. There is inherent in this piece a clash of the Titans. Archaic notions stand firm in the sometimes daunting, and in my opinion unnecessary, sense of propriety in an industry that is shifting and changing as quickly as I do a new outfit. Zac Posen represents the tremendous transformation in the fashion universe where those antiquated formalities are seemingly unnecessary. While any industry should maintain high levels of professionalism and collegial respect, I am not sure if it is fair to pummel an outgoing, out stated, and even sometimes outrageous designer who doesn't fit the norms and nuances of what "should be". If raising children in 2010 means those norms of child rearing are changing, I hope that the rest of the world will work to catch up.
