Some short reads below to look intoContinue reading “Fashion reads while ‘social-distancing’”

LONDON FASHION WEEK 2020

This past weekend, I was able to attend my first ever fashion week in London. Typically not open to public, fashion week is a celebration of new, innovative art and design coming together.

Sustainability in Fashion: Realistic or Idealistic?

I think it’s really interesting to think about what “sustainability” even means in fashion. At the route of the industry is the need to be materialistic – “fashion” wouldn’t exist without the need to be a bit excessive or “consumeristic.” If we are pursuing sustainability to “avoid the depletion of natural resources [and] maintain anContinue reading “Sustainability in Fashion: Realistic or Idealistic?”

some overarching thoughts on the fashion industry

I think it’s cliche how people say that fashion is a form of self-expression. It is, but it’s so much more than that. What we choose to wear is a choice we make everyday, whether we want to or not.

Spring/Summer 2018 RTW (Part 1)
