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
