Quote, Unquote…

Fashion. That one word evokes so much emotion, passion and sometimes vitriol. Whether you love it or hate it everyone has an opinion on it. Those on the outside think that those on the inside reside in an ivory tower that is unfriendly to outsiders while those on the inside see beauty, creativity and a fabulous yet demanding way of life.

This quote from Olivier Saillard – current curator at the Louvre’s Musée des Arts Décoratifs and soon-to-be a resident of Paris’ museum of fashion – perfectly describes why I choose fashion/journalism/fashion journalism.

“For me, fashion has always been a way to escape the daily grind. It’s different than other fields. So many people on the outside complain that fashion does too much, too quickly, but no one in fashion complains about the pace. Fashion is preoccupied with appearances, but appearances can have a profound effect on life. Fashion is entertainment and it’s not very serious, but if it’s your job, you have to do it seriously.”

-Olivier Saillard, curator at the Louvre’s Musée des Arts Décoratifs, on Style.com

And I apologize to readers of my blog for my absence and for this half-baked thought. Thank you for sticking with me.
