Happy Saturday, friends. What’s everyone up to this weekend? Last night, I attended both Madame Moje and Mikael D Spring 2015 runway shows. Both designers sent the most ethereal gowns down the runway. As I watched the models float by from the front row, I couldn’t help but think, “this is what fashion is all about. It’s about emotions and feelings and being transported elsewhere, even if it’s just for a little while.” My first fashion week experience was surreal to say the least. But that’s for another post.
