The Beauty of Fashion Week

I remember the first time I ever saw runway fashion...I was awestruck by the beauty of the clothes, the models and even the sets.  But as I perused each season's latest trends, inevitably the next thought was, "Where am I going to wear something like THAT?!"

As Fashion Week gains in global popularity so are the opportunities for its attendees to don couture.  While getting into the actual shows takes industry ties (or honest to goodness hustle), being on the scene is not just for those in the biz.  Anyone can be in the place donning their favorite designer...and who knows you may be immortalized by the paparazzi.

Fashion Week attendees are likely to appear in fashion mag editorials or blogs...like this one.  And what gets snapped is not only the latest fashion trends; sometimes photographers fall in love with the simple, the audacious, the well-worn attitude that attendees bring with them.  And it's ALL beautiful!

I believe couture (in all its forms) finds its true voice when worn by the individual.  Each iteration as unique as themselves because fashion is art, and art is meant to have unique meaning to each person...interpreted in their own way.  

Now it's true that couture is an investment, but so is all art.  Invest in some, invest in yourself, attend the next fashion week...even if you can't get into a show...just flaunt the unique beauty that you are.  /cm

Any guess which Fashion Week this is?
