Thank you Bob Dylan for articulating my thoughts on an article in T Magazine by Suzy Menkes entitled The Circus of Fashion. At first read Suzy reminded me of a character from “Midnight in Paris’ with her, and I paraphrase, ‘everything was better in the past’ sentiments.
However, I agree with her whole-heartedly on show-goers’ peacocking and find it annoying and silly too. But I am even more tired of celebrity-focused fashion– at least the show-goers dress themselves! And btw, didn’t Cathy Horyn cover this topic just last season?
But to slam bloggers as a greedy, gift-grubbing bunch is an unfair generalization. I don’t take gifts, nor do I do sponsored posts. I only promote what I like and would wear myself. I actually just turned down a paying project with an iconic American handbag (soon to be lifestyle) brand because I don’t wear their product. And I know plenty of editors who take anything and everything that comes their way. By law bloggers must declare gifts, end stop.
