je veux te voir

Before I began to spend my afternoons in Allure's fashion closet, I thought that I was well rehearsed in couture.  I soon realized that I only enjoyed creating outfits, rather than actually understanding the industry.  After categorizing designers from American Apparel to Reed Krakoff I've come to understand the nuances in their styles that I never truly saw before. Here's a short list which includes a few of my favorite high fashion designers:

1) Marc Jacobs: obviously.  I always liked him, but seeing his versatility up close & personal truly makes me appreciate his work.

2) Chloe:  one of the classiest designing houses I've yet to witness. Also, I love the (pale/neutral) color choices.

3)  Givenchy:  like WOAH.  Simple, sophisticated and even can be edgy.  Also their bathing suits are awesome.
