Chicago in July. Fashion’s appeal reigned amidst the wave of heat that blasted upon those of us that ventured out onto the city streets. With a heat index of 105 degrees, I ventured from the train onto the streets of Chicago with enthusiasm (paired with several venti iced coffee’s in which the ice melted in minutes). City love awaited and fashionable inspiration beckoned me from behind my lens. Capturing the Summertime fashionable appeal paired with pre-Fall proclamations from the windows of fashion merchandising was my goal. For those that follow these monthly fashionable posts of Chicago, perhaps you have come to expect its arrival onto the pages of this blog. A constant for me. As fashion is always changing and the seasons along with it, one constant is my appreciation for the artistry presented behind the heavy glass panes of fashion . Changing appeal with seasonal inspirations. On the cusp of Autumnal impact in fashion, it is my hope to provide a visual appreciation of the fashion that awaited…from behind my lens….
Of course, a view of this stellar city (albeit, from my iPhone)….
Onward in appreciation of fashion…from behind my lens…
I must add that the windows of Chanel won me over immediately. Incredible visual artistry that offered unexpected impact. Full size images that delighted. Chanel always delights and of the many images of Chanel windows that I have captured over the years, this visual above ranks at the top. Cheers to the visual artists behind Chanel!
Consider in appreciation the windows of fashion that surround you. The artistry of fashion’s marketing and the seasonal changes are sure to bring forth a nod of appreciation. I will always be behind the lens with the hopes of capturing an essence of fashion from the city streets of Chicago. Onward in that, indeed…
PS: Appreciating fashion’s windows also brings appreciation to the city reflected in the image. And of course, often, the photographer themselves. Selfie, onward.
