“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.” – Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel
La Chanelphile is the blog most dear to my heart because it’s still in its infancy and showing so much promise. I’m so enamored with the brand that ideas for different columns keep spilling out of my head – case in point – my new column “Fashion in the Streets.” Chanel knew that fashion was all around her and that many ideas that inspire how we look come from what’s happening in life and “in the street.” So, I’ve decided to start documenting Chanel as I see it worn in the streets. What better place to start documenting than New York Fashion Week? There is no shortage of Chanel so my job was pretty easy. I have a ton of photos to go through but here is small teaser of what is to come. Enjoy – and stop drooling! Oh, and many many thanks to the lovely ladies who let me photograph them!
