So much so, that at her Fall/Winter 2009 runway shows  during Fashion Week featured barefoot models; shoes that would be worthy of her outfits have yet to be created.

Ink and water star in a silent elegance. If you ever thought of a photograph as just a “mirror with a memory” and photography as just a means of capturing the beauty that surrounds us, think again. Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama’s Kusho “Writing in the Sky” series

I so desperately long for the vibrant colors of spring. “Pride & Glory,” the fashion editorial for the Spring 2009 edition of V Magazine (the magazine about fashion with a capital F) has just the right amount of clashing patterns and 80′s silhouttes to get a fever burning….
