Living in the Moment with Francesca Liberatore SS18

There is a wall of shoes, suitcases stacked, clothes scattered everywhere, and our phones charging. We’re running out of time. Certain outfits then decide they hate us and will not pull up, push down and adhere to our bodies. Then the zen takes over. I have a flash of all the memories from the past few days and remember, “you are at fashion week, just go with it.” Why in the world do I need to stress when the whole thing is out of my control anyway?

It pushed the lines of what is hidden in your subconscious. You wanted to scream with excitement with every look that came down that runway, finally someone saw the really raw part of how everyone feels but no one wants to say.

This was your split personality in your face, unapologetically. RELATED: Freeing Yourself from Judgement in Fashion I think we’re always looking for our true selves, the ones we were before we were told what is socially acceptable. When I was in my early 20’s I had this black

The Evolution of the Power Suit and Finding Yours

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week” – Carrie Bradshaw Everyone has their idea on what Fashion Week truly is, but you only get to see bits and pieces via the media. You want the truth? Fashion week is all smoke and mirrors. The people I saw walk through those doors are just like you and me. Some have designer handbags and some don’t, some had perfect hair and makeup and some were sweating from walking God knows how many blocks to make it to the show. Everyone was coming together from all types of backgrounds in order to join in this one moment. Where the rooms stands still for five minutes and you get lost in a story.
