If someone were to ask me to define myself in a word, I would call myself an explorer. I’m fascinated with the idea of identity, and discovering who I am requires exploring the many variations of self expression. Though my passion is writing, my heart has given way to the craft of fashion. It was not until I wrote an article in my history class about the rebellion beneath flapper fashion in the 1920s that I realized fashion is a form of expression. Fashion can create characters and tell stories. It can depict a mood or convey a message. This blog tells the story of an explorer uncovering the wonders in the world of fashion. It’s raw. It’s couture.
