For the love of artistry and fashion.
Good morning, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week thus far, though I'm sure you're looking forward to this weekend. For me, this week has been a whirlwind, and last night a friend and I attended a fashion show for one of our top University's fashion graduating program. We sat front row, very "Sex and The City" style, and enjoyed ourselves immensely as bold, interesting, unique, pretty, and beautiful fashion design filed down the runway. The impending calamity, though, was the most stunning bridal collection, ending with a very luxe gown that featured a detailed, fitted corset bodice, and the most exquisite and intricate train that I have ever seen. Applause, cheer and tears filled the large room, and for the first time I truly felt the beauty and immersion that fashion can bring to a person. We enjoy many gorgeous images on a daily basis, but to actually see such incredible works of art, and to be able to appreciate the sweat, toil, tears and joys of creating such was truly amazing. Do you know what I mean? Have you experienced something like this?
On a side note, isn't this shoot gorgeous? I believe it takes place in Musée D'Orsay, in Paris, as while I was visiting a little while ago, it was one of my favorite spots...I bought my first original painting just outside! These dresses are unbelievable, aren't they? Do you have a favorite?
