Blogforbettersewing.com wrote an article called "Corsets as Outerwear?" which was questioning whether or not "the role of corsets in the shifting role of underwear as outerwear" and I thought it was rather interesting. What do you think?
I found that Rihanna was/is a huge fan of the trend, wear it whenever possible from the stage to the streets.
It is funny how the undergarment was to help shape the body and now the look is for pure fashion sense and can be worn with nothing but jeans.
Like Blogforbettersewing.com said, "What a fascinating shift! If a Victorian woman showed her corset, it would be shocking, and I'm sure she would be thought of as a very loose woman (read: hooker). But now a woman showing her corset is in the mainstream, and a woman wearing her corset as underwear is the perverse one."
So, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen the color of the year and it is Tangerine Tango. I love the color because it is so bright, sweet, and refreshing. It is perfect as a simple pop of color when you want to brighten up a really basic color like white, black and beige. It is also a stand out in the crowd color, unless everyone else is wearing the trend, which means that you are really gonna have to WORK it!!!
What I find interesting is that there is a group of people that decide on the colors that people are going to create and wear. What about you? Are you going to be wearing the trendy color? As a designer, will you be creating designs with this color in your collection?
