A year of city inspirations. The fashionable windows of Chicago from behind my lens. A year in review in which I still find inspiration and excitement through the images I compiled. Looking back upon my monthly commitment to journey to the city of Chicago on a solo journey, camera in hand, had not once failed to delight and inspire me. Alas, the energy of life. And of the photographs? Each compilation a visual memoir of fashion’s change viewed from behind my camera lens.

It was during the end of this year that I realized that life is full of edits. Alas, my new tag line for life. A new mantra, if you will. Life really is full of edits. Constant edits. Through our eyes we edit and focus on what we desire to see. Alas, what we focus on expands. From behind my camera, I constantly edit. Focussing on the windows of fashion and compiling those images to present a “snapshot” of fashionable inspiration brought many further edits. Upon reviewing the collected images, the editing of the photographs taken to capture the essence of the season, the moment and the experiences take on an editing process themselves. Each month, I reflect upon what images capture the magic, the timeless fashionable elements and the artistry of fashion’s whims? To photograph a city and share the magic within it’s windows of fashion with the intent to inspire & express the energy and excitement through those images is thrilling.

Those that stumble or linger on the “pages” of this blog is also thrilling to me. For those that would like to take a closer look at the many compilations of city scenes behind the windows from each month, beyond what is presented here, merely search “City Inspirations”. The compilations of a month-by-month visual will hopefully provide you with fashionable inspiration throughout the year wherever you reside…

May you be inspired to look closer at the fashionable inspirations that surround you throughout the year. Perhaps with a new refined appreciation of the artistry of the magic of fashion merchandising and the evolution of fashion’s change.

A New Year awaits us. Edit and frame your view. Life is constantly moving forward. Move with it with appreciation. Focus on what surrounds you. May your eyes be wide and your interest piqued….always.

Onward,

Kristin

PS: For those that enjoy the magic of the “City Scene”…2013 in review was a combination of fashion and architecture from the great city of Chicago…
