Fashion inspiration for designers (and real people alike) can come from a lot of places. For example, a few years back I took some photographs in a loft in NYC’s garment district during fashion week of some interesting mini-collections. Because I inadvertently mislabeled them I don’t know who the designer is, but I did think the ideas presented were very cool and fashion forward or, in this case, maybe backward. What I mean by this is when I look at these photos, I can’t help but think of “Game of Thrones,” or perhaps any movies or television shows which represent the Medieval era. “Simple,” and even “rough-hewn,” would be words used to describe the ensembles serving as the brainstorm for my DIY runway redo this week. The looks in this blog post are a simple juxtaposition of rough-hewn and feminine at the same time. This is a great fashion rule I’ve come to love. In simple terms, it means these items shouldn’t go together, but they do perfectly! These looks are both “tough and tender,” catch my drift?
