Wild: Fashion Untamed at the Met!



It seems that Wild has a historical perspective as there is a exhibit at the Met in NY covering my specialty - FUR!
It discusses the 'class access' issues dating back to the Renaissance when fur trimmed gowns were the fashion to the current fake furs that define the 'ethical woman'. As for the men, the 'fat cat' was accessorized with a hat, cigar and fur coat as a symbol of sexual and economic power.
Isn't it great that in this day and age we can all express ourselves with the freedom to wear and be what we like expressing playfulness and fun?! What are your views on this?

Getting Serious... A Serious Knit Dress!


I have decided that I am all over the place with my blog... it isn't a place to just chat... I have to actually say something. I have given this great thought and I have decided to focus on expressing wildness in fashion. Since that is really what I am trying to do with my business, this is what I am going to do with my blog. So, this my first post of my new focused blog.
How to be wild in your fashion expression. I saw one way that the Indie Craft craze that is taking off with fashion in this 'KNIT DRESS'. I think this epitomizes the humor and fun we should all be having with clothes - total expression. Perhaps not on a daily basis but shouldn't your WILD streak come out and play once in a while?
