Wise Words: Gianni Versace

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.Gianni Versace

I thought Versace’s quote is very appropriate since NYFW began yesterday. It’s a bit ironic: Fashion is an industry that thrives off of consumers playing into trends, yet an iconic fashion designer is stating to simply be you. Don’t dress how the industry is telling you to dress that season—dress however you want! Dress for how you feel, how you want others to perceive you, and however you feel best. Be true to yourself, not true to what is on the racks. You will feel much better both about yourself and about your bank account ;)
