Ways of Seeing
I've always loved fashion. Real, you couldn't wear that to pick the kids up, fashion. The sort the tabloids love to mock, but whose influence will add to the fragrance and colour of our lives, whether we notice it consciously or not.
Fashion, like any creative activity, has the potential to be art. Unfortunately it takes a dogged spirit and a bloody mind for a designer to keep pushing artistically under commercial pressure to turn out wearably bland whatevers. Thus, such people are rare.
And today they got rarer. And that's sad for all of us, even those who live in trackies.
