One of my favourite songs performed by one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses… Perfect.

when i was in my teens, i experienced a shift in my life. the details aren’t entirely mine to share, but i will say that things seemed to be falling apart in every area of my life, in a way that was typical to a sixteen year old girl. after one overly dramatic incident between friends, i locked myself in my room for a week solid, listening to vienna by billy joel on repeat. although it may not have been the words, the melody, the song itself that gave me the strength to face my self, it’s the song that i ultimately associate with my own courage. to this day, if ever i need to remind myself to tackle one thing at a time and not be so hard on myself. even now, listening to the song as i write, i feel myself remembering the strength it took to heal…

STRIPES

Fashion’s made me its prisoner…

The Black Cape

STRIPED

Stripes! Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors showed a LOT of stripes in their spring collections, which means stripes are coming and will be here to stay for a while!

What colour are you wearing today?

urbanRack

It is important to not only appreciate fashion, but it is more important to understand the elements of fashion. I want to focus on one element of design, color. Color (aka hue) is the most exciting element of design because it is what catches the eye first. It is the most personable and important part of fashion. For example, in picture 1, where is your eye drawn to first? The multi colored striped layer, right?

colColor represents feelings. For example, blue suggest that you are feeling down or lonely.color

Value means the lightness or darkness of a color. Under value there is tints (made when white is added). The opposite of tints is shades (made when black is added). The intensity is brightness or darkness of a color.
