The Mode Elegance of Fantasy
Coco Chanel once said, "Be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly by night."
"Nothing could be more comfortable than a caterpillar, and nothing could be more made for love than a butterfly."
Fashion is an interpretation of emotion. It transforms the individual into a fantastical creature of self-representation. Clothing allows so many transformations: slipping into a silk dress to undress; donning a hat of feathers in a multitude of colors and texture; pulling on a coat of fur to cover and protect a dream.
The fairy tale princess may not exist in reality, but it is possible to feel royal through style, substance, and fashion.
