I think I’ll always harbor some love and reverence for the various fashion happenings of the F/W 2006 season because that was when I really, seriously began to pay attention to fashion (I think I was…fourteen?). That fall, I started a collage on one of the walls of my room, and it grew to a considerable size after I had thoroughly ransacked a few magazines… I considered updating it the next season, but decided not to for two reasons, one being that I feared its continuance would lead to an ungainly size and I would run out of wall space, and the second being that I absolutely adored that moment in fashion and I felt like (and still feel like) my collage captures a bit of that atmosphere. Anyway, when I saw this editorial from the September 2006 issue of Flare (a Canadian magazine that I’d never heard of but I guess now I’ll have to check out…), I was hit with a whopping dose of F/W 2006 nostalgia….
This last one is my absolute favorite. That dress is the love of my life.
