These fashion week days are marking more and more that women are taking back a power that, for a long time, they didn’t feel they had anymore. It seems like they are saying: “ok, the world is messed up; let us take the helm of it because you men wiped everything out.” This makes...
These fashion week days are marking more and more that women are taking back a power that, for a long time, they didn’t feel they had anymore.

To see the models crying on the Fendi catwalk was really touching. It seems also that the soundtrack of the show was the same one used during the shooting of the last advertising campaign, and this added feelings to feelings.

This season, London’s schedule is packed (as it always is) with the youngest, the brightest, and the shinily newest. So much so, in fact, that you’d be forgiven for thinking the city’s old guard had disappeared.
