It’s 2017 – exciting, isn’t it? At The Fashion Crowd, we took a break in order to strategize for 2017, and now we’re back with exciting plans and a desire to make 2017 a fashionable one.
Over the past days, we stumbled upon a couple of articles that made our minds fly. The first was from Vogue (read it here), and it spoke about the amount of changes that happened in 2016, and that are likely to keep happening in 2017. That is one thing that is certain and the over-all question remains how fashion can keep up with the pace of social media and its instant changes, its very reason to exist. Perhaps in the future, the new normal will be that we will all only have a basic wardrobe and merely rent the fashion pieces in order to always be able to change them? Joseph & Oscar de la Rente… Let’s see. Surely it’s exiting and opens up to a well of new possibilities.
The article went on to talking about the main designers, colours and trends. Reading it, we couldn’t help but feeling that somehow it was a bit limited in scope. If there’s something that’s happening in fashion right now, it’s the ‘anything-is-possible’ (if you can just pull it off), and that the cool designers aren’t only the top directors at the big brands, and that pink isn’t the only colour. At least not, if you’re a trendsetter.
It’s not that we’ve made a ‘Fashion Crowd New Year’s Resolution’, but we found a maxim that resonated with us in that it’s bold and fun, and this is exactly what we want 2017 to be. Full of cool-cat energy, not bothering about what people think, and definitely not sitting around waiting for a bunch of things to happen (such as travelling to the Maldives in January) before she can do stuff.

Happy New Year!
