The theme of SO PR's press days was "The Fashion Circus"... referring to the (in)famous article by Suzy Menkes on the fashion scene, who according to Menkes nowadays look more "like peacocks than crows [...] Or, more accurately in the fashion world, the celebrity circus of people who are famous for being famous".
Whether you agree with her or not... fashion is still about looks, colours and creativity; about seeing and being seen; about standing out or blending in. I love the (fashion) circus... the bright colours, the outrageous prints, glitter and glamour, sugar candy, wild animals... birds of Paradise!
This was SO PR's version of the fashion circus... Thank you guys for an entertaining afternoon with loads of new ideas, inspiration and of course... fashion!!!
