Fashion is Passion...

There is something undeniably intriguing about the notion of a “guilty pleasure”. Two words that are so contradictory yet so perfectly married in the language of our most coveted addictions, secrets and loves. They can exist in any size, shape and color. They can be imagined, concocted, restricted or conceived. But regardless of their manner of existence, these “guilty pleasures” are often the backbone of our wildest dreams and greatest ambitions.
My guilty pleasure... is FASHION. The way it feels, the way it looks, the way it sparkles, drapes and cascades. It is an entity unto itself and an escape from reality where my most impossible fantasies can exist. What may have once started as an innocent crush has grown into a self confessed, and somewhat questionable, yet unavoidable and oh so magical obsession!
The definitions of Fashion are endless, the possibilities reach past infinity. It can evoke emotions of power, passion, envy, courage, beauty and fear. It’s abilities to instantaneously transform you from invisible to distinguishable make it impossible to disregard. It is an art form and an identity and regardless of it being a “guilty pleasure”, or simply a rationale to my sanity, it is a representation and a soul that resides within me. As Coco Chanel once said, “It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure.” So surrender and initiate, true Fashion comes from within...
