Widening Your Fashion Horizons

There was a time when I thought that most of the fashion that came down the runways were "ugly". I would ask, Who would be crazy enough to wear that out in public...or How do you wear that?

As I get older and become more mature, my taste in fashion has become more discerning. At the same time, what I found to be ugly before has become aesthetically pleasing - more like a work of art, if you will. I find my fashion horizons widening as I learn more about designers from other countries. I embrace innovation and change in the way clothes are designed and don't base my opinions on what I hear many conservative San Diegans say about fashion. I guess you could say that I'm a Cali girl with a New York sense of style. A few of my friends have told me this but I didn't realize this until I started writing about fashion over The Runway Scoop. Oh yeah, maybe my fashion sense is a little more East Coast than West Coast.

That said, I'd like to share with you some interesting designs I came across as I browsed through photos from Fashion Week in Australia. I share them with hopes that perhaps you may widen your fashion horizons as well...

These two pieces come from the New Guarde Collection for Spring 2009...

New Guarde Collection Spring 2009I really like the collection from Charlie Brown. Must be the hippie girlie-girl in me...
