A Sartorial Standpoint: Why Fashion Matters

Lisa Fonssagrives, 1950



          I see fashion as no different from art or literature. It’s a primary source of its time and a biography of its creator. It can be analyzed like a novel, and looked at for hours like a painting. It’s just that it’s worn on the body rather than bookshelves or walls.

Your (Non-Stressful) Holiday Gift Guide
