What's on The January Fashion Calendar

The January calendar includes fashion weeks in Paris and Berlin as well as the closing of two not-to-be-missed exhibitions about fashion icons including:
Daphne Guinness
Daphne Guinness at the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology ends on January 7th, 2012. Daphne herself was heavily involved in the production of this exhibition. She said "What draws me to fashion is art...and certainly not fashion as status symbol," and "This exhibition is done for the benefit of those out there, students or otherwise, who share this love." The show is hauntingly beautiful and many of the ensembles evoke a sense of fragile and fleeting beauty. Daphne uses clothing like armour -- attracting attention in doing so but also putting a physical barrier between herself and the world that hides her real self within these exquisite creations.

Grace Kelly Engagement
Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess at the TIFF Lightbox ends on January 22, 2012. Having seen this exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, I recall marveling at the elegance of the gowns on display. Grace Kelly embodied the elegance and restraint of a modern princess.

The Haute Couture shows in Paris run January 23-26, 2012, beginning with Versace at 10:30 a.m. on January 23rd and ending with Valentino on January 25th at 6:30 p.m. The complete schedule can be viewed here. How I wish I was going... instead I'll be in class (sigh)....

May 2012 bring good things your way....Live with passion and dream big!
