Writing about fashion is like dancing about architecture. No, I think I got that quote wrong, but the sentiment holds up. Fashion is constantly moving forward, eating its young, killing its father, and reinventing itself every hour on demand. The nature of it means that anything written about fashion will soon be yesterdays useless newspaper, consigned to the scrap heap of last year’s whatever, and not worth the paper it’s printed on.
We must look to the future to bring reasonable writing to the world of fashion, and we must use technology to bring forth abundant and consistent volume of content that can be called up via a quick search, or a notional interest in the most minute detail. If you build it… they will come, but only for a time….
Icons come, and icons go.
