Let me pose this question to you all: What's do you consider an appropriate way to spend a Thursday afternoon? Meeting an iconic visionary who is on the verge of total fashion domination for some light talk about art, fashion and the future? Yeah, that's what I thought. But believe it or not this is how I was lucky enough to spend yesterday, chatting about the recent exhibition, The Little Black Jacket, premiered by none other then the infamous Karl Lagerfeld and his counterpart and legendary fashion figure, Carine Roitfeld.
As some of you may know, Carine is debuting her new quarterly magazine CR Fashion Book set to launch early next month. She was kind enough to enlighten my fellow fashion-blogger heads and I on her endeavors as well as attempt to briefly get to know us as best as she could in the time allotted. Upon leaving the meet-up, it really hit me how absolutely blessed I am to have met such an interesting and incredibly chic (in all respects) woman like Carine. And while I won't say we're now BFF's, I do have a newfound admiration for her and her warmth and interest in all of our interests and dreams. She herself admitted to being a dreamer, and deemed fashion as an appropriate medium for livening those dreams. An artistic rebel in her own rights, fashion and art should be refined, revised and in a sense challenged, but for me personally, Carine reaffirmed the fact that the validity of dreams doesn’t matter, just as long as it feels right from within.
So once again thank you Tumblr, Carine and to all those at CR Fashion Book for a wonderful Thursday afternoon.
