Fashion & The City

Fashion and the City/Chicago/March 2018

Fashion & the city. Entwined. Architecture and the city. City scenes and fashionable luring windows endure to bring appreciation from behind my lens. An ongoing attempt at capturing the essence of fashion’s change in a structural world of distinctive architectural details. A love affair, indeed…

Spring onward, from behind the lens…

Appreciate the details that surround you. Looking closer, looking upward you will find details of beauty. And from behind the thick glass panes of fashion’s changing stage? Inspiration and appreciation of fashion’s whimsy and artful displays of style will loose you, if but for a moment, into the timeless and often fantasy world of fashion.

One side note…On this day, March 31, 2018, Jcrew has deemed it to be International Stripes Day.  Befitting that the image below finds me in Jcrew stripes. Breton Stripes forever!

Onward!

Fashion & The City

Chicago, January 2018

Fashion and the city. Two loves. The art of fashion and the architectural city. Chicago.  For the last few years I have presented a monthly visual of the mannequins of high end fashion that grace the streets of Chicago. Oh, Chicago. A few snapshots of my love of the city and the fashionable streets joined together.  Fashion is linked with the city it surrounds. To me, the two are entwined.

Like fashion, my life continually changes.  Perspective.  As I have held firmly to the word “onward” in recent years, in the first month of this New Year I was struck by another word.   Prevail.  Just as truth prevails, the city prevails. As a word that can be used in several contexts, in this case,  fashion and the city that surrounds prevails in continually offering us such a vast array of visual delights.   Oh, for the love of the energy of the city, the architectural delights and the changing visual world of timeless and whimsical fashion that awaits behind shiny panes of glass off the streets of a city. Not to mention the sounds of the city.  Or the weather itself that changes the city seasonally.  On this particular day intense fog rolled in and shrouded the city by afternoon end.  Oh, for the love of Chicago in January.

That said, a New Year, a new intent, onward…

Fashion and the city.  Architecture and fashion as art.

From behind the lens I offer my perspective which is a personal passion and a love of the city and the world that resides within its realm.  A world of fashionable fantasy, architectural history and reality.  Onward in appreciation of all of those elements.  Life.  The world that surrounds us and the joys we find within our realities are gifts.  From behind the lens I will continue to capture what inspires.  City inspirations, indeed.
