SEPTEMBER 2018 Instagram: Style_Christchurch CLASSIC STYLE: Taken in 1952, this photo transports us inside the Parisian studio in which Christian Dior (pictured) applied his fashion genius. Oh là là! Love it or loathe it, fashion permeates our life. It colours our world and dictates the shapes our bodies show. It changes, and we change with it. The rules are fluid, and almost fickle. What is acceptable one season, may be shunned the next. Then, when enough time passes, the fad is resurrected for another time in the sun; presented as new once more. Shades come and go, hem lengths go up and down, and even the amount of material alters. Consider the puff sleeve, it’s certainly adding to the fabric needed per arm, and again affects the shapes we step out in. The best looks depend the most upon the wearer. A cheap dress may look $1000 if it’s worn with confidence, yet a $1000 outfit will look cheap if ill-fitted and matched with a sour expression. So, why do we do it? Why must we have the latest handbag or another pair of shoes? Because, be you fashion heathen or fashionista, when we get it all right, it makes us feel good. In this bumper issue, we cover fashion trends and the designers who make them, as well as showcase the latest looks of the new season. We hope you find the inspiration to step out with style.
