Every week is fashion week

I read the New York Time web site like a holy writ. Frequently, coverage of some fashion show or another will make its way to the front page of the web site. I'm a sucker for anorexics, so I generally take the bait and click the link. Of course, being the sort of person who reads the entirety of every blurb in a museum (even if it's an art museum (even if the text just list the artist, year of creation, and the ever-popular name "Untitled.")), I actually read the article that accompanies the pictures of expensively dressed waifs and wastrels. So far as I can tell, though, these articles are as free of content as the carefully coiffed heads of the models.

The world of fashion seems to be predicated on some notion of progress, where styles constantly change and evolve. Certainly, there is some basis for a claim of development in other visual art forms. The style of paintings exhibit clear changes from decade to decade, and while I am no art critic, I can appreciate some of the evolving theoretical ideas which underlie the changes in appearance. These runway shows, in contrast, feature the same basic design year after year. Shirts are still shirts. Pants are still pants. The commentators will note that wool is a common trend this year. Last year there was very little wool. But seven years ago everything was wool. Does this make wool new or innovative?

What's more, I cannot for the life of me figure out whether anything motivates the cut of the sleeve of a dress or the choice of lining for a coat other than pure aesthetic preference divorced from deeper metaphor or meaning. I mean, a designer presents a line of coats which neither keep the wearer warm nor allow them a full range of vision. Fantastic. But why? Is this commentary on the position of women in society? Or the relationship of the individual to the technological and cultural artifacts with which we surround ourselves? Because it looks really weird and doesn't really function as clothing in the conventional sense. Even if you could manage to walk around in a high fashion outfit without tripping or running into a wall, your progress would be impeded by the baffled masses gawking at the such alien tactics for covering your nakedness. If runway clothing is so impractical that it cannot be worn outside of a fashion show (hence the necessity of distinguishing "ready-to-wear" fashion from its more cumbersome brethren), then surely these aesthetic flourishes should serve some higher purpose. Please enlighten me.

I don't thin that it's possible to wear all the clothes for eg from the spring fashion week - but that's an art! Just designers have idea, images - so they show them in fashion clothes. Just enjoy! Like in museum:) I do that.

Rachel made a lot of sweeping “every girl” statements this sportsbook episode. Leather leggings are apparently the “next ‘it’ look that every girl has to have.” I’m not so sure I “have to have” the $1,668 Rag & Bone pair, but cameo party guest Lindsay Lohan’s 6126 line makes an $98 faux pair. And speaking of faux, bet nfl Rachel talked shop with the folks at QVC about launching a line of faux fur outerwear that I thought was ah-mazing. I might be able to wait for Rachel’s line to hit the http://www.enterbet.com airwaves, but in the meantime, I’ll be eyeing Rebecca Taylor’s awesome faux fur vest ($350).

Handmade design pieces, crafted objects and expertise never go out of fashion. Sportsbook Because an idea can be freely put into form unhindered by production constraints, handmade design often displays the purest form. Dominique Dufait's Tbag collection testifies to the purity and originality of handmade goods. the collection has strong architectural influences and is fully handsewn and processed. The basic form is the teabag, wellknown to all,
online betting by name of the Tbag original, and the rest of the collection is inspired by the basic form. All the bags are true 'handbags', they are to be worn by hand and completely made by hand, not even sown together with a machine but with the traditional 'saddlemakers' stitch'. hence, there are no seams and no front or back. Combining form and functionality, march madness the archtitectural landscape of the inside of the bag makes it a true organizing pleasure.
