I may not know what I'm talking about as a "fashionista," but I do know what I like. I've been pouring over the fashion mags, and haven't seen anything I'm particularly excited about. Nada. It's all relativley wearable - almost too wearable. Nothing exciting, nothing that reaches or pushes.
I have to say that it does make me feel a little vindicated that Robin Givhan's reports from Fashion Week express her disappointment, too. I love exploration, I love the stretch of haute couture. Not that New York Fashion Week is about h.c., but I do expect American spirit - what makes us us as Americans - and from what I can tell from Robin's report, it's just not there.
