I don't get high fashion

The list of things I don't understand is a very, very long list. Math is #1 on the list. The list also includes nightclubs, abstract art, Canada, and small dogs. But one thing I absolutely will never, ever understand is high fashion. Seeing photos from the recent New York Fashion Week just really left me muttering, "whaaaa?"

This is the Italian luxury brand Fendi, and this model has a placemat from the 1970's stuck to her chest. She also forgot to take off her safety goggles from Chem lab.

According to Rebecca Minkoff, style is denim skorts with an elastic waist, pulled up high and with your shirt tucked in. Mmm-hmm!

This model made her dress out of one of her grandmother's towels. 

I like to think of this look as "Sesame Street chic." This outfit is the fault of Oscar de la Renta, a legend among the fashion industry. I mean, look at the expression on the face of the woman just to the right of the model. You can actually see her brain about to explode.

This is fun. I could go on and on with this, but I need to get back to homework.


  1. Thank you for this post - I was laughing at every caption, especially the 1970s placemat! (Which I just almost wrote as 1870s. Same thing, right?) I don't get it all the time either. Some of the outfits are obviously beautiful and took a lot of work to make. Others are...yeah.

  2. Glad you liked it! Thanks for the comment. :) I agree that some high fashion is beautiful. But some of it is ridiculous, and just because some famous person designed it, doesn't mean it's not ridiculous.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I read every single one!
