Fashion is not for the serious

I love fashion, but sometimes it takes itself way to seriously. Dressing up is supposed to be fun, and express who you are. So why is it, that every fashion campaign is filled with tight lipped, brooding models, who look like they're about to kick your ass? I don't get it! I'm going to be going to school for fashion design, and I planned long ago that at my debut runway show, the models were going to dance down the runway. That's right dance! And I don't mean awkward 7th graders in a gym kind of dance. Real, awesomely spectacular dance! The fashion industry won't know what hit 'em.

The reason for this ridiculous rant? I came across the Lanvin Fall-Winter 2011 ad campaign, and I laughed my ass off. I love that they broke away from tradition, and it's just so goofy. The clothes are also pretty fantastic.
While I was writing this, I was reminded of another great video showcasing Moncler Grenoble's Fall/Winter collection as well as their refusal to conform. It's probably the greatest fashion show ever, even if it is a tad long.

I crave the unconventional :D


  1. I know it's just his stylistic expression, but every time I see that teeny judge on Project Runway with the Moe haircut and the Bigfoot bowtie, I feel like I want to chase him back into a circus tent.

  2. I agree.... you can't take fashion too seriously!

  3. I like this blog. cool post. i´d like you check out mine.

  4. OMG!! I've always had the same idea about a runway show. I'm going to school for fashion design as well but before I was really serious about dancing. This week we did a fashion show at school and I remember seeing the models and they just look so angry. Love the blog, I'm following. Hope you can stop by mine soon :)


  5. i totally agree with you, sometimes on the whole the industry is taken far too seriously. this lanvin advert made me smile, raquel zimmerman looks HOT in it xx

  6. That Lanvin video is wonderful! Thank you for sharing it!

  7. It is funny isnt it. They sure didnt hire these models because they could move. Maybe the video was an after thought. Look forward to seeing your upbeat show. Xxxx
