The Good Life

Clothes can become all-consuming, an experience encompassing more than acquiring the latest must-have, chasing trends and looking for newness. There is fashion history - rich with inspiration - across cultures and societies. Details of materials and make inform, leading one to appreciate what is rare and time consuming over that which is readily available. All the better as relationships with designers and artisans are nurtured. We become discerning, outfits turn into wardrobes, and style takes the place of trends. We dress ourselves and for ourselves.
