Now that fashion week is underway, it's incredible to see the work and designs strolling up and and down or sometimes sitting on the catwalk - from being backstage to front stage to the mind of a curious being, a mere spectator, a mere mortal. Having no connection to the fury and frenzy that goes along with the circus is a strange feeling but one that I'm enjoying (I think). Is there life after fashion?
Of course there is!! I have responsibilities, a family, the school run, yoga, counciling and story time to keep me busy. But I do miss the buzz, the drama that comes with the setup of the shows, long days and longer nights, the parties, the schmoozing and of course the amazing collections and street style snaps that come with it all. And then to start all over again the next day in the next city.
With my current life I have no time for the latest trends exuberant purchases, I'm going from home to school, the high st to the coffee shop and then back home and work in front of my computer. All I need now are essentials that will get me through the week allow me to look cool enough not to embarrass the kids at pick up and be comfy when playing in the garden or building lego.
My staple uniform has gone full circle and now I feel that I've reverted back to my childhood style. Oversized Tees, track suits albeit Alexander Wang but it's about a necessity vs a need or a want anymore.
My love affair with fashion isn't over it's just evolved like the industry I trained in and love!!
It's just taken on new meaning, which now gives me the opportunity to dress the kids, and let them be creative and feel inspired and confident in whatever they wear. But I do keep an eye out for the latest/ next fashion savior or Creative director change. It's hard not to, but as I search through the daily blogs of all the major players telling us what we should or shouldn't wear all I hear is BANG 💥
sorry I thought the kids were fighting again but......
......it was just London calling.
The fashion train continues to gather momentum, next stop, bedtime.
