Vivienne Westwood Fall 2019: Fashion Protest

Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 2019 runway show was all about graphic protest through fashion, although Vogue’s Luke Leitch’s review was more a protest of the protest than a review…he discussed literally nothing shown but rather complained about being sold clothes while being “preached” to about sustainability.

Gucci Resort 2018: The Sloppy Copy

I took a moment to reflect on Gucci’s recent collections, and honestly feel like I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the librarian look, the 70’s has been great to Gucci and I likewise will adore many of the on-trend looks and grimace at others.    The look that stood out from the collection was the…

DIY Til I Die: Oversized T-Shirt to Fitted Muscle Tee. 

 In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to revamp an oversized t-shirt into a fitted muscle-tee.  I’ve begun upcycling, fitting, and editing clothes that don’t fit me well: it’s a great alternative to throwing out the ill-fitting and buying unnecessarily- it’s also a way to be environmentally and fashion conscious given fast fashion piles up…
