pfw update - sensory overload

A joyful feast for my eyes!
Vivienne Westwood enlisted 8-year-old school children in a unique collaboration for her Fall 2008 collection & asked them to envision designing for jungle-dwelling eco-warriors. The child-like inspiration came across as the obvious theme in the show with a focus on all things wild and pretty. And what a fabulous collection it is. A successful pairing with playful fabrics & prints, billowing dresses, capes, ponchos, faux fur, knee-high socks, braids (oh, the braids), butterflies, snakes, and, most importantly, the stilts (fab).
The collection combines eco-warrior with wearable & extremely cool.
I feel the need to put on my skivvies, find a rope swing & throw myself into a river (?).
