Closet Confessions: Identity Crisis

Who Am I?

I spend a lot of time obsessed with everything fashion, so much so, that I get lost in my mind. I see everything, I want everything, and I can never get my look right. Personally, I know who I am inside, but outside I am in consent evolution. I’d like to say I take fashion risk constantly, but sadly no, I am way to self-critical. In my younger days, I was obsessed with designers like Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci (Tom Ford days), and  D2, love my Canadian boys!! Now, a little older, a little more travelled, and almost out of university, NOW WHAT?

In middle school I was sporting Dolce and Gabbana to every party, yes we partied a lot. High School was all about Prada, I thought Prada’s intellectual style would translate into good grades–nope! Summer’s in Japan led to DSquared, and Tom Ford’s Gucci days of cool. I felt at ease with myself at this point, but as University wore me out, and my clothes became lacklustre. No time for style when you’re sprinting to class.

Back on the fashion block, I am perplexed about what to wear next. What will define my new understanding towards style? Travelling has been great way to observe new looks, cultures, and perceptions. However, I still haven’t found my signature look. Walking away from fashion to study has left me in a position of new discovery.  I am enjoying for the first time, in a long time, not knowing what to wear. I love walking down the street and checking people out, attending the shows, and saying “I’ll try that.” One collection that has snapped my attention for a couple of seasons now is Givenchy. Givenchy Spring 2012, men’s collection has me wanting to take a fashion risk, step out from my comfort zone, and into rock-hard style.

Like a child, I am discovering fashion all over again. The cards have shifted so much in the fashion world, as new designers take centre stage, and established designers draw the curtains closed. There is a storm  brewing in fashion, one that is wild and unpredictable.  The names of the future are being etched as we speak. Keeping our innocence of exploration is what will keep our eyes to the horizon.
