It’s fashion, dar­ling!

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE - Air kisses to you all,

It’s as if the fashion crowd hiber­nate all win­ter and then sud­denly crawl out from their lairs wear­ing ex­treme colours, clashes and pat­terns with six-inch heels to fin­ish off their quirky and of­ten ridicu­lous out­fits. I has­ten to add these fashion folk are sim­ply dressed up to the nines for one rea­son only — to be papped! They dress to be seen and each out­fit has been con­structed to turn-heads and gain fashion celebrity sta­tus. For the “nor­mal” fashion ed­i­tors and blog­gers amongst us, there to ac­tu­ally work, Fashion Week is about look­ing ef­fort­lessly stylish at the same time as feel­ing com­fort­able. No­body said that fashion is meant to be com­fort­able, so that’s the main hur­dle to leap, es­pe­cially when it comes to footwear. Hours of stand­ing, wait­ing, tak­ing notes, rush­ing from one show to the other and work­ing 15-hour days are just part of the job. The buzz and adren­a­line is like noth­ing else. It’s chaotic but in a won­der­ful and ex­cit­ing way. With new de­sign­ers launch­ing their de­but col­lec­tions while old favourites con­tinue to daz­zle, there’s so much to look for­ward to for AW17. Even if you’re read­ing this think­ing, “Can’t we just en­joy the com­ing spring and sum­mer be­fore wish­ing it away with au­tumn and win­ter fashion?” it’s worth tak­ing note of which trends will come and go and which will re­main. That way you can make sen­si­ble pur­chases now and get your money’s worth till at least the end of the cal­en­dar year. Take some style notes!
