“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
That is probably one of my favorite quotes about fashion. When I lived overseas out of a backpack for a year I missed fashion quite a bit and I remember being so inspired by everything around me. When I was in Africa it was the bold patterns and mixed prints, in India it was the bright homes, in Thailand it was the thought that was put into the most beautifully designed restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops and it truly felt like I took that inspiration home with me.
I couldn’t agree more with the how Coco Chanel describes fashion. To some, fashion can be thought of as maybe a little superficial and unimportant but to me it’s something that is all around us just waiting to be noticed and ready to inspire those who do.
