Is Fashion dead?

I simply haven’t been able to get this article out of my mind: The Fashion Industry doesn’t even care about Fashion anymore. If you read one article this week or month, let it be this one. First I reposted it to The Fashion Crowd FB page. Then I reposted it on LinkedIn, and then to the intranet with my MA class from Academy Of Arts University, but I still feel I’m not done with it. The title says it all; The Fashion Industry doesn’t even care about Fashion anymore. It’s a very strong statement and rather negative too. Is fashion dead? Let’s explore. All the people I know in fashion are utterly passionate about it. Otherwise they simply wouldn’t be there, as it isn’t worth it. Too much hassle. It’s people who dream about fashion, spend their Friday nights on Pinterest, and who will consider their wardrobe more of an archive. So, in my humble opinion, it’s not the fashion professionals, who don’t care. Indeed we – as in a broader range of people in …

Fashion Cat

Cover Cat

The great thing about having a space called ‘Fashion Fun’ is that you can do what you want. It’s a bit like research really, where you intuitively go with images that excite you – just because they excite you. There’s something wonderfully free and almost rebellious about it.

So I decided to post a cat. A Cover Cat. For some reason I got excited about this. I just love how it looks straight at the camera. And I love the type of sunglasses too. You can really feel how it belongs in the world of fashion; Le Chat front row. But why am I actually posting this? Because I’m having fun while checking out fashionable cats on the net, and I’m trying to remind myself and others that fashion should be fun, at least it can be. It’s often very serious too, and pretentious, but it …

It’s 2017 – Editor’s note

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 …
