Luxury is a concept!Posted: August 28, 2010
There is a great post over at Carly Cais’ blog, Chic Steals. Here’s a little excerpt:
…why I began Chic Steals two and a half years ago: to examine the idea of “value” of clothing, brands, and labels – and to deconstruct the idea of “luxury.” I want to teach people to try their hand at making their own fashionable items – to demonstrate that value is conceptual, and instilled in an object when one takes the time to create it oneself. It’s amazing how much you value something, crooked seams and all, when you’ve slaved over it, day after day, or researched how to do a certain process in the making of it.
Can I just say, Right on! Go over and read the rest of the post. She makes some other very relevant points!
