sunset in your eyes

Dresses create dreams, and elegance is not over. Or shouldn’t be. I have lived with the idea that fashion is like art and like music. When going through archives and discovering pieces like the ones Yves Saint Laurent did all over his collections, or what Alber Elbaz has done with dresses, I believe fashion is certainly not over, and that elegance has to be preserved in some way. And that we have to support it.

Inspiration comes from what makes you dream, and makes you appreciate small details like they were the most iconic, outstanding ideas. This is what I see on every new fashion show , or while revising past collections, even the ones in a museum. 
As for dresses, that have empowered women over the last couple of thousands of years, I like the conception of Elbaz: “When I make a dress for a woman, I don’t want to just offer her a cut or a fabric. I want to bring her part of a dream, of a fantasy, that will make this garment unique in her eyes”
Dresses like this, of course, make me ecstatic with each detail.

    I absolutely agree! Dresses are more than just piece of clothes to keep you warm and not naked. It's fairy tale, you can be the princess you always wanted to be, or the witch! You can be an elegant lady from old picture you found in basement or you've seen in some old black and white movie. It's a dream and it's a fantasy.

    I've never understood that girls wanted to be princesses and wear heels and beautiful dress since they heard first fairytale, but spend their all life wearing jeans and sneakers.

    Denni, your comments are so quite artful & poetic. I would only humbly also invoke the sagacious words of yves saint laurent (i believe) that: "fashion fades. style is eternal."

    here, you "truly dreamily," indeed, epitomize both, and from head-to-toe (luv the brilliant symmetry of "glorious pops of red") seem the very quintessence of "classical/timeless elegance & beauty!" xo
