Inspired by the Elle New Talent theme: optimism, my take on fashion week will be an inspired one. I am only going to write about the collections that I loved from start to finish with every part of my being. There is no need to review the collections I wasn’t moved by, because well… let’s face it; I’m not an expert. I am just a girl who loves a gorgeous garment and a sick pair of shoes. I am sure that it has already become apparent that I am a Christopher Strong fan and that I am slightly obsessed with and in love with the designer behind Christopher Strong – Olive du Plessis. On so many occasions when I ran into her between shows I had to stop myself from being a totally groupie and gushing at her. In fact, the one time I caught myself mid-frantic wave as she walked past completely flushed with excitement that she even acknowledged me. Psychotic right? I know…
my notebook
@font-face { font-family: “Times New Roman”; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0mm 0mm 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: “Times New Roman”; }table.MsoNormalTable { font-size: 10pt; font-family: “Times New Roman”; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }
Anyways, so I took a picture of my notebook so that you could get an idea of the types of feelings the Christopher Strong collection elicited in me. I have written things like “I am in love” and “ that skirt is fucking beautiful.”

The collection was just immaculate. Yes. That is the word to describe the collection because in order for something to be immaculate it needs to be faultless and perfect. The garments were beautiful, modern, detailed and sexy. I want to be the Christopher Strong woman. That’s who I want to be.
Honestly speaking, I am floored by Christopher Strong and just looking forward to filling my entire wardrobe with their winter collection.
