The es­sen­tials

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

Fash­ion as we know it evolves. Styles come and go, peo­ple pass away, but icons of fash­ion are for­ever alive in our memories. Princess Diana was a glam­orous wo­man who un­der­stood the power that fash­ion plays, whether as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the royal fam­ily or al­low­ing the pub­lic to get a teenytiny glimpse of her life. In her later days, she clearly felt more free to ex­per­i­ment, with more cleav­age on show, more risk-tak­ing trends, more global de­sign­ers (not just Bri­tish), show­ing a side to Diana that was re­fresh­ing, care­free and so ob­vi­ously happy.

Fash­ion will al­ways tell a story. A trend, like a fra­grance, will trans­port you to a cer­tain era or a fond me­mory. Fash­ion can be a won­der­ful pick-me-up tonic for all of us.
