"We need once and for all to reconsider euphoria, extravagance, cynicism, vulgarity... Fashion is a very serious matter. I don't like women who follow fashion in the sense of becoming victims of it. I like women who have elegance, who have allure, who use fashion, rather than the other way around."

Giorgio Armani

  3. I completely agree with Mr. Armani. I don't understand people who blindly follow trends without adapting them to their style. And gosh I adore Sasha. She's in my top 3 favorite models of all time for sure.

  9. Fashion is indeed a very serious matter, something that many people outside of it seem not to realise or to willfully ignore. A first impression can mean everything - and with fashion, you can make it exactly what you wish.

  12. I'm just enjoying catching up on your posts after my holiday. This quote makes a lot of sense and it's true that we shouldn't become slaves to fashion. It should be more about adapting some of the trends to our own style.
