“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”
– Coco Chanel

“Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony”
– Paulo Coelho

“You don’t learn style from watching people on a runway. Fashion happens every morning when you wake up”
– Shalom Harlow

“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language”
– Miuccia Prada

“The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.”
– Diana Vreeland

 

NOTE: I highly recommend playing this song while looking through the photos: “Painted Eyes” by Hecules and Love Affair, from Edward Benjamin Britten with the Choir of Downside School, Purley. To do that, please just go back to the bold tittle of the song and click on it (a new tab will open with the song playing on Youtube), then go back here while the video is playing.
