Last week I felt like a student again. Exactly the way we were years ago, gathering in a library every Saturday and Sunday, stuffing the building to its roof in a manner of hungry (for knowledge) sparrows. Everyone knew everyone, and everyone knew the exact location of yet another yellowing tome we still had to get. Right now it seems crazy how we managed a week of lectures and home work with extra vocational courses in the afternoon and still found energy to spend an entire weekend making notes and collecting information (there was only one scanner, old, tired, expensive and, frankly, unable to cope with our demands) that might have transformed into a shiny red diploma (with distinction in case you are wondering what on Earth "red" means in this context), but turned out to be pretty much useless long term.
Still... It was all about the process. Saturating the brain with facts and leaving them to brew. May be it was part of the reason why I've always enjoyed my humble fashion weeks. More and more labour-intensive, they are some of my treasured stories ever created for this blog, my "love preserves" for those who wants to learn a thing or two about fashion, or once again immerse in its already familiar past and simply experience an overwhelming feeling of affection towards one of their favourite designers. If you enjoyed my Mila Schon week, stay tuned for another one in March.
For now - it's a clean slate, fresh emotions, new events, plenty of inspiration and a beautiful editorial from Vogue Mexico & Latin America. So lets embrace the new week... and grab that coffee because, frankly, it's a very early Monday morning and despite sounding all bright and sparkling on paper, I am shattered. Oh, and it's 1 February! Which means less than two weeks before the fashion week and my quick trip to London.
