Notes on Style and Fashion

Like Visiting an Art Gallery

Posted on: October 2, 2007

Vivienne Westwood never ceases to amaze me. Her designs are unique, but not in a crazy, off-the-wall way, either. Her Spring 2008 collection is very reminiscent of an artist’s palette. Close attention was paid to cut and angle, as well as to fabric choices.

While it may be hard to imagine wearing a Vivienne Westwood creation as one sees it on the catwalk, what calls to me is the creative level of her various designs. The second dress, for example, recalls something floral in the way that it is shaped. The skirt is the stem while the top, billowing and full, is the actual flower.

I also found several of the detail shots inspiring.

la fashionista has had an interest in fashion and style since childhood when she first saw her mother dress in the various fashion of the 80s. Her mother was also a great seamstress, which was a definite influence on la fashionista's foray into fashion. Sadly, her mother's sewing talent did not get passed on to la fashionista.

But that doesn't mean that she doesn't still love talking about fashion. Because she does!
