“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel
From Gucci to Prada, Chanel to Dior; designer fashion teases and tempts us every day as glamorous works of art that only Carrie Bradshaw can afford on a journalist’s budget.
Being a communications assistant at a publishing company, I don’t anticipate having a pair of Manolo’s taking up room in my closet in the near future. My current trips to NYC consist of stopping in at Bergdorf’s, gawking at all the amazing fashion, and walking 5th Avenue or the streets of Soho dreaming of casually walking out of Chanel, with a new bag in hand.
While my “Chanel” bag fund has all of $50 stowed away (only $2,500 to go), designer fashion entrances my brain into taking my wardrobe and making a $20 shirt seem like it came right off the runway.
Fashion week and magazines feature new designer fashions and trends every day. In the weeks to come we are going to explore different designer fashions that even Carrie Bradshaw would be proud of.
What designer or era does your fashion inspiration stem from?
