Wondering who’s wearing what, how and where during all the summer festivities around Montreal?...and for the very first time since 2004 I have less stress because I only dressed my regular girls and did not push outside that perimeter too much. WHY? Because frankly I don’t praise nor do the ''much in demand'' #sausagelook and never will. My #upcycling vision is about balance, feminity, sexy but #nevervulgar, revealed but never shown. So when I had the odd unaware girl walking in and asking for #thesausagelook...Sorry I refuse do it. #notgoingtohappen
I am into the #antiminimalist #flowers #ruffles, #flowy #chiffon. The only #sausagelook , if I ever indulge into it, would be the formfitting look I can prone = The #forties #pinup impeccable presentation. Everything is in check head to toe, no bulge, no sausage! In the same line of thinking with the length of clothes: I still do short hemlines & encourage girls of all ages to experiment. Everything is a question of proportion, context, architecture and balance, not age or heights. Legs are an asset girls can play with and carry on for a very long time during a life span: like the stem of a flower... and you can create endless look from that!
*FYI: I refer to girls from 8 or 80 as my regular clients and girls for me is the youthful spirit that inhabit every woman and I am not using it in a diminutive or disrespectful way au contraire!
So getting back to dressing up for #Grandprix, #Festivals, #fundraisers, #galeryopening, #museumnight, or any other events like #Bdayparties, #weddings, etc... I often use the flower metaphore as a structure for a women body and how to play with it. It works. It is soft. It is non-offensive and many flowers refer to many body types and all flowers are beautyful so as so many different girl body type! And that is what I had to say today!
OH! Forgot to say another essential about dressing up: my mom always told me that when in doubt, always better to be #overdress then #underdress and I preach it ever since. This is a topic for another day!
