Since it’s the Design Week in Milano, there is a whole lot going on in the city.I will try to keep you updated on that. Design Week is the most important event after the unforgettable fashion weeks. The Fashion Design Houses that don’t have their own Home Collections, usually collaborate with designers to propose some special projects related to design to make a part of this week. So yesterday, I was at Marni Charity Event and I saw these wonderful retro-inspired chairs by colombian craftsmen. Each one was a piece of art. They were presented with a photographic exhibition/video by Francesco Jodice reflecting the Marni World.
And here are some Highlights…(also from the Store.)
Another beautiful collection from Dell’Acqua with a long-lost romantic vintage feeling keeping the modern image. As usual natural colors:Black,wine red,black green, melange brown,nude and camel beige tones. Rich materials:Velvet, tweed, triple organza, silk duchesse. My favorite accessories are the Velvet High heel with buckle detail and Gardener Glove with Rhinestone Embroidery.
Today I got up with a weird question. What would happen if fashion didn’t existed? What would you be wearing? How would you impress your client without your immaculate suit? How would you seduce the guy you like without your sexy dress? How would you look different without your favorite accessory? How would you become anonymous without your hijab or veil?
There are people that complain about superficiality of our jobs. That what we do as designer is frivolous. Ok then, What would happen if we were all DJs and everyone produced music. Maybe you could just sing, dance and enjoy the party? Those people, before deciding what they do is more important than others, they should try not to be so superficial and understand the amount of work and effort behind e every collection and if not accept this fact at least have respect for it. and everything is perfect because there is variety. Those who design clothes, those who write music, those who produce wine, those who save lives and all others. Capisc?
And I conclude with wise words from Coco.
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
(& Afterall, only If you have nothing to hide, you can present it all.)
