I will have you know that, though I absolutely adore fashion; I'm still quite new to the whole fashion thing, and even though I am only starting to learn about the labels, the art, the workmanship etc. ( a journey I have decided to take with you all) there is one particular brand that has really caught my eye these past couple of months.
The late Franco Moschino, a former designer of Giorgio Armani, decided to create his own fashion label in 1983 thus Moschino the fashion empire was born.
It seems as if Franco Moschino had wanted all his pieces to have a sense of sprightly infectiousness; he wanted his pieces not just to come alive, but to light a spark in the hearts of their admirers. With their edge, colour, vibrance, and many times, eccentricity Moschino breaks away from the sometimes bland world of minimalism that the fashion world is prone to attach itself to. At times during his shows two of the same outfits would be presented; one in the usual artsy runway manner and another worn the way any normal person might wear it in the real world...a catwalk-sidewalk conglomerate.
His motto is said to be the Latin proverb : 'De gustibus non est disputandum' which loosely means 'in matters of taste there is no dispute' ; basically, where what you want, when you want to where it, however you want to wear it - its a free world and no one dare judge you.
And here are some of Moschino's latest contributions (Milan Fashion Week 2011). I believe the theme they were going for here is like a WORKING CLASS MEETS HIGH CLASS type of thing...I hope you like these as much as I did :)
