I recently finished an article on leadership and I can’t help but wonder, “who are the fashion industry leaders?”. I see the followers but who truly shapes what we wear? Yes, we have more than enough designers who are self-defined as cutting edge, fashion forward, innovative, creative…blah, blah, blah…but again, nothing new. There is nothing distinctive about the work. People are frightened by the idea of being shunned so they create safe designs.
No, I will not be foolish and purchase your ‘it’ bag and ‘what’s in now’ clothes because I don’t want to look like all of the other ridiculous women who can’t think for themselves. Find me a designer who refuses to be a supporting cast member and wants the lead role.
Now that’s dripping sexy!
