Ok. I am not much of a fashion follower. Fashion Week is not, in fact, the core of my existence. Yes, I know. Shocker. "Why in the world would a five-foot-tall woman who weighs roughly four times as much as the average fashion model (roughly) not be interested in runway fashion?" Right.
However, I do like to meander through the runway slideshows now and again. This year seems, as many others have noted, to be fraught with a dismalness that fairly takes the breath away. Not only are the colors, or complete lack thereof, numbing but the shapes are... well, one can only say "Blah. Unflattering. Somewhat tedious." Hmm. I should be a fashion writer. I can so bring the world-weary seen-it-all-and-yours-sucks attitude.
In any case, although several of my favorite designers have yet to show and so I can't comment fully on the spectacle that is Spring Fashion, I will say that I have so far found only one item that I, the short fat non-fashion person as mentioned above, would be remotely interested in actually trying to wear. And here it is.
Is intriguing, no? Now, the fact that I see this as an item that I would consider putting on my body (as opposed to possibly framing on my wall) probably means that it's not really so interesting and perhaps even Bad Fashion. I like it anyway.
Here's my interpretation of what it might look like based on the two images I've seen so far.
I think this is totally possible to make. Don't you? Of course you do, you're drafting the pattern right now, right?
Please send it to me when you've finished.
(edit: yes I know, it’s FALL fashion. I was looking at Easter dresses while I was typing this post. Too confusing.)
