Chicago in August. Upon departing a train in the city of Chicago I embarked, once again, seeking inspiration. Lake breezes gently wafted through the city streets filled with tourists and city dwellers. Embracing the city by Lake Michigan, the visuals and energy set before me endures to provide ongoing inspiration. It is endless. However, it is not simply the windows I seek upon each visit, but an appreciation of the world of a city that surrounds. Always look up. Always look around you. What surrounds can surely inspire. Appreciation…

“Looking Upward”: Chicago

Beyond the windows of fashion that continue to change and evolve as seasons pass, the facades of the buildings, renovations or changing storefronts will also continue to evolve. Moments of a current transformation from behind the lens: Louis Vuitton, Michigan Avenue…

And of the fashionable windows that line the streets, beckoning the lens of my camera? A multitude of images that I was compelled to compose from behind the lens and onto a bevy of visual pages that may provide a feel for the changing fashion behind the windows of fashion in Chicago. A new season ahead and windows that proclaim it. The layers of Fall were even more evident. Autumnal infusions of hues and layers of warmth seemed to provide excitement of a new season ahead…

And of course, what would Autumn be like without denim? Denim jeans were everywhere paired with classic layers of in-between-seasons style. Yes, the lure of denim jeans endures to beckon us. Styles may change, but the classic denim jean, worn with elegance, will endure within the wardrobes of women. Timeless. Appreciation of fashion’s evolution and proclamation, either way…

Of course, a trip during the Summer months often beckons me to the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. A setting off Oak Street Beach and the Magnificent Mile, visual and seasonal delight is offered year round. Yet during the Summer months, the shoreline seems to take on a life of its own. Iconic Summer in Chicago. Pair to that the mere sensation of the sand below ones bare feet sinking in the sand is Summer itself (Perhaps that is even more true for me as my childhood encompassed the beaches of Long Island). And of the waves that crash and offer the beautiful surge of nature that crests and recedes, only to repeat in a natural force? Details of life worthy of awareness, focus and appreciation, for certain…

Consider the windows of fashion that surround you. A mere appreciation of the artistry of visuals set before you. Timeless representations and even whimsical displays of the world of fashion merchandising. Always changing. Always evolving. The “Tried and True” elements of fashion that endure as basics to our own personal worlds of fashionable accoutrements. With appreciation, my camera will continue to click and compose from behind the lens. For the fashionable windows set before me now will never quite be the same again the next time my camera sets its focus upon the new scene that will be set. Changing fashion. Captured, from behind the lens, a visual appreciation of the Windows of fashion in Chicago, indeed…

Onward,

Kristin
