Fashion of Today?
A thought crossed my mind last night when I was watching Grace Coddington muse over her shoots in The September Issue. We view mistakes as something to learn from, and this includes fashion mistakes as well, doesn't it? I remember when 80s style was tipped to be the new look and when reading about it, the upcoming style report was laced with a sense of dread to what this publication surely saw as a fashion mistake. Now the publication applauds and praises the funk 80s look! We are an inspiration to ourselves by constantly travelling back in time to travel forward with fashion. We get ahead by reversing and this can include taking a light open minded view to what we once decided was a fashion mistake.
