September! You know what that means, don’t you? Fashion Weeks! Everywhere! New York Fashion Week was last week, Paris Fashion Week starts in a week and a half (more on that later). And today, I went into Boston with DH, DS the Younger and his best friend. What did I see when I got there? The annual Wearable Art fashion show from Mass College of Art & Design. These are juried student works, ranging from daywear to evening looks to, quoting Project Runway (don’t even get me going), the “Unconventional Materials Challenge”, which happens to be my favorite. So enough jabbering, let’s show the looks!
There were three vitrines. Or maybe they were daises, since they were open air. Whichever, the first was day looks:
Tweedy Day Look – this one had metallic threads and was very cool.
The next vitrine housed the evening wear looks.
And then on to my favorite, the unusual materials group:
Okay now, darlings, I need to talk to you. I’m going on a real, honest-to-goodness vacation next week. I’m not leaving until the 21st, but I am going to… Paris!!!!! I’m leaving my computer behind, and while I am gone we won’t be processing any orders. I’m giving you notice now, so you can be prepared. I haven’t unplugged ever in the last 6+ years, but my DH is going to Paris for a trade show, and I don’t know when or if I’ll get another chance, so I’m going!!!!!!!
I will be here and online all this week, but starting next Saturday, September 21st, all orders will be held until I get back on Thursday, September 26th. Merci in advance for your patience, and I’ll post tons of pictures from the City of Light when I get back!
