Trends We Thought We Would Never See
When I say, “Now I have seen everything”, I am not lying. As the runways are now being influenced by the real world…which used to never be the case…elements of fashion are creeping onto the runways that defies my perception of runway chic. Especially out of Paris. There was a time when fashion was the unachievable goal. To play in the sandbox of fabulosity meant being part of the exclusive, illusive dream machine. Now that fashion has been democratized…gross…we see now that the fashion houses are buckling under pressure to deliver the people, that which will make them feel special. Fotz….like a designer pacifier as it were. Anyhooo…here are a few looks that speak to this phenomenon.
Fashion used to be for the beautiful people. Now you can literally put a bag over someone's head and voila...you are fierce.
Excuse me for thinking that slicing a whole in a pillow sham equals high fashion.
So it's either Elephant Man chic or ugly ducklings are now in vogue, too.
Yes, Beth Ditto is cool, but whatever. This makes her look like a pin cushion, not a fashion plate. Well...a plate alright...of food.
Again, I support and applaud the plus size industry. It now has it's own fashion week...which is hilare. But us ex fatty's know not to wear this much print. Period. One thing it to not be bone thin...the other is draw attention.
OK...wear this in the boudoir. That's hot. But this is not the boudoir.
There is also a lovely return to simplicity. But when simplicity looks too much like hospital gowns...well...that is not what the fashion doctors ordered.
