The “Runway Revolution” At The New York’s 2015 Fashion Week!

Whenever “fashion” is being talked about, the inner drive in me sparks and it comes naturally.   It is probably because of my admiration and passion about this industry even to the minutest detail, including simple trinkets and other accessories.

Fashion For The “Have-Less” And The “Have-Nots”- Tips and Thoughts

  In these precarious times due to the depressing economy, only those in the upper echelons of society (“the haves” and the “have-mores”) are willing and able to spend thousands of green bucks for high fashion, avant-garde and haute couture dressing. A classic example was the recently concluded (4/29) royal wedding of England's Prince William and Kate Middleton where socialites made their respective fashion headlines from head to toe. But, for average and middle-class fashion stalwarts and wannabes (who may still fall under the category of the “haves” ), they  would think twice on whether or not to spend their hard-earned … Continue reading Fashion For The “Have-Less” And The “Have-Nots”- Tips and Thoughts
