Future of Fashion

I recently came across a very interesting and informative set of videos produced by Vogue UK, in collaboration with Alexa Chung, called Future of Fashion. I found them so refreshing and instructive about the inner workings of fashion that I wanted to share some of them with you, in hopes that it will enlighten us all about the real face of the industry and its power.

In Alexa’s words, “people are very dismissive of fashion in general, it comes across, in a cliched way, as considered frivolous or indulgent…and the general public don’t take it seriously enough.” Living in a country like El Salvador, I constantly find myself battling against the derogatory stereotypes surrounding the industry, and trying to vindicate its presence within a developing country, where there are always other more pressing, noble, and/or attention worthy matters.

I definitely encourage all of you guys to watch the video I’m leaving you with. Although it is a bit over an hour long, it is meant to help you draw your own conclusions about Fashion based on a better understanding of the industry.

The Vogue Festival 2014

Video edited by Marielli Rodriguez

My last weekend of March was full of style, personalities and rendez-vous. I had the pleasure to attend Vogue Festival 2014 in London, a two-day fashion fair in which top designers, models, and editors gather to share their experiences and professional wisdom to anyone who’s willing to listen.

Fashion is undeniably a darwinian environment.  The competition is fierce and only the strongest, sharpest, and most passionate can survive. Meeting those who have already become legends (Phoebe Philo, Franca Sozzani, Naomi Campbell, Manolo Blahnik,…) is always inspiring and encouraging. As Diane Von Furstenberg said: “That’s fashion. It never stops. It’s like a train journey, and some people come in, and some people leave, and the landscape changes. So enjoy the ride.” 

Mi último fin de semana de Marzo estuvo lleno de estilo, personalidades y reencuentros. Tuve el placer de asistir al Vogue Festival 2014 en Londres, un festival de moda en el que diseñadores, modelos y estilistas se reunen para compartir su experiencia profesional.

La industria de la moda se caracteriza por ser un entorno darwinista. La competencia es feroz y únicamente sobreviven los más fuertes, listos y apasionados. Conocer a aquellos que ya se han convertido en leyenda (Phoebe Philo, Franca Sozzani, Naomi Campbell, Manolo Blahnik,…) siempre me inspira y alienta a seguir adelante y disfrutar al máximo del paisaje. Como dijo Diane Von Furstenberg: ” Eso es la moda. Nunca se detiene. Es como un viaje en tren, hay quienes se suben y quienes se bajan y el paisaje cambia constantemente. Así que disfruta del viaje”.
