No Rest for the Weary...

Via Fashion Gone Rogue

This image of the stunning Liya Kebede sums up exactly how I'm feeling.

Truth be told Fashion Month has been exciting and exhausting with no rest for the weary. While the season commences in New York, it's not until the last of the collections wrap in Paris that we can begin to interpret what Fall 2011 is truly about. 

So far, I would say Fall 2011 is about coats, texture, unique color combinations, tricky proportions, mixing and matching prints and the return of opulence, but the Paris collections always have a way of changing the dialogue. Perhaps that's the benefit of showing after New York, London and Milan. The great show schedule debate ensues. At any rate, we'll know for sure on Wednesday. 

After a day of seeing runway shows, I like to end the day looking at the shows online with a cup of tea. It's the only way to make sense of the sensory overload and packed show schedule. It's also a quiet way to unwind after a long day. I'm always intrigued by the show notes and designer inspirations. 

Sigh... If you have to slouch, might as well do it elegantly right?
