Okay a small fashion moment this morning, please. Can we just ponder for a second?
It is a moment courtesy of Garance Dore – my new heroine.
You have to seriously love a girl who writes this about herself:
“Seriously though, there’s always this side to me that ends up utterly unorganized, that can’t get its act together to be the perfectly manicured creature of light that I would sometimes like to be.”
I have been feeling a bit like that off and on for the last month. I dream to have a tea (or other beverage) with Garance and Scott.
I would like to interview and photograph the two of them…
I have thought so often about a post that Scott did in August called “So What Do We Think About This?”
The quote below has really stuck with me. In my constant berating of myself because extra weight that came with having Maggie at 44, I shy away from cameras and photos like most other women. Perhaps this should be reconsidered:
“When I am shooting on the street older women and larger size women often say “no” to my request to shoot them. Actually, much more than any other category of people I shoot. I think they have a real suspicion about how the image will be used. I also think there continues to be a growing disconnect between the fashion community and “average” women in general.”
BUT back to today, nobody captured the mood of the Chanel like Garance. Please go read her post and look at her photos.
Karl Lagerfeld does country with Lily Allen singing. Really? I am not sure why this shocks me so…
Please tell me what you think.
Garance sees a time coming soon when fashion shows will be like rock concerts.
Are The Songbirds singing?
