Graceful, elegant and daring women are often lost in the shuffle of trendy folks who walk the streets as almost billboard cookie cutter representations of would be super models. I am exhausted by the same looks, the same styles, the same images over and over again. I so very much appreciate when people take something fresh and make it their own. I love when women and men adapt the clothes to them rather than internalizing the essence of the clothes to fit a character or trend. The joy that comes with wearing clothes, rather than those clothes that wearing the person, is palpable and vivid. I see it in the eyes of my daughter when she feels comfortable, confident and beautiful. I see it when I look in the mirror at a smiling face, an upright posture and a glimmer in my eye. This is fashion at its best.
