200th Post!

September 15, 2009

i’m so excited to share that sassafras has reached its 200th post! i’m also quite excited because i started my “wired writing” class at saic today and i’m looking forward to all of the html and blogging tips i’m going to learned. i was quite thrilled with myself for knowing the basics that were taught today, as i’m not nearly as web-savvy as i’d like to be, but i’m thrilled with all of things i’ll be able to impart into sassafras.

sooooooooo many amazing shows to peruse, although i’d by lying if i said that’s what i’m doing right now. instead i’m winding down from a long day in class with season one of true blood (oh, how the obsession reigns) and the world’s largest salad. it’s good times monday, folks.

allllso, new chicago flame article up, “bookin’ it,” would love for you all to check it out. it’s not the high fashion analysis that i love, as its for a college paper, but it’s always nice to get more writing out in the world.

here’s some fashion week videos for you…enjoy!

designers as models

June 2, 2009

dvf has, once again, proven what a spunky little genius she is. this year for the cfda journal, which showcases the event’s nominees, dvf told creative director trey laird, “Capture fashion — do something fabulous.” the results, i must say, are splendid. wwd has only released 3 of the 21 photos, but they’re just so delightful and fun i had to post them.

i love how the shoot pairs the art with the artist. i so enjoy experiencing art and fashion through what i know about its creator, because i think it’s fundamental to understanding and enjoying what they create. plus designers are such quirky, fun characters…it’s wonderful seeing them as models.

the photo of jason wu is my favorite…that dress looks like a dream. and paired with the blazer and skinny tie…it’s just spectacular.
