As we, once again, look toward a new year...I have returned to the familiar with an eager anticipation of what will unfold in fashion for 2010. This blog is both a labor of love and at times, I hope, an intellectual endeavor...as this is how I see fashion.
It requires unique vision and a creative intelligence to innovate the familiar, to translate our collective experiences into a wearable expression, and brave vulnerability to captivate an oftentimes jaded and jaundiced audience each season who is always eager to proclaim it has already been done. And perhaps it has, but I never tire of looking for the "divine" on the runways and fashion spreads and sharing my awe and excitement when a designer's vision of their inspiration is revealed. In each season's collection, fashion speaks to us of our hopes, dreams, disappointments, beliefs...it reminds us of where we have been, shows us where we are, and suggests where we are heading. I look forward to continuing this dialogue with each of you this year. What will be your fashion statement(s) for 2010?
