A Teeny Tiny Rant Inspired By The Last Emperor
I cried when watching "Valentino: The Last Emperor". Roll your eyes and think what you will but when you see his seamstresses from the 1960s embrace him and breakdown down into tears, you get a tiny glimpse of how much the past 48 years has meant to him...and the rest of the world. I moderate my comments to keep pesky trolls out because to them, designers, design houses, and the fashion industry is "just shopping" and we, the fashion fanatics are simply "slaves to consumerism". Take some time, read a book or two about some of the most famous designers/design houses and maybe then you'll have a better understanding as to why the Valentino red is different from all other shades of red or why the 2.55 is so much more than just a $3500 purse. Maybe then you'll understand why fashion is such a big deal.
