Structured in the Chaotic

After a nail-biter of a stock market for the past three days, news of increased deaths in Iraq, and something about John McCain running for President, it was Paris Fashion Week that provided reassuring and structured answers to the world's problems. Sounds naive? Maybe. But the smoke and mirrors of fashion is what we all love the most. To get lost in that beautiful world, tucked in between Givenchy's azul furs and Balenciaga's cozy tribal gowns.
Editors, buyers, and fashion correspondents abroad will all rave of the world's troubled and bleak outlook transforming itself into inspiration for the designers. Hussein Chalayan's environmental campaign via catwalk certainly presents itself as the perfect exhibit. But let's not get too carried away here... it's fashion! Forget about social commentary. Fall is bringing us the most brilliant display of craftsmanship we have seen in a while.

Couldn't agree more. Fashion is always an outlet to escape for a little while of the real world chaos.
