Take a Seat

AerkeaSeatt1I’m starting the new year by posting my last article of 2015 for FashionUnited.com. I am happy to say that I will be increasing my writing for them in 2016 and have been informed that 2 of the Top 10 Most Read articles of 2015 on their US page were written by yours truly. Although they are headquartered in Holland, and are read in 20+ countries, the reality that I am checking in from my small East Village corner of Manhattan (possibly still in my pajamas) really brings home to me the global yet intimate appeal of fashion. I have been enjoying this opportunity to pen my responses to the shifts and turns of the fashion industry and I hope you enjoy it too.

  1. Very interesting article, Jackie. And I think the dress by Lavan Chxeidze would look better on you anyway … in my humble opinion πŸ˜‰ That’s not to say that agender clothing is unappealing. In truth, it would probably make my shopping for clothes more enjoyable, assuming that the agender lines allow for larger women sizes πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you!
      Very valid points you make, I think. Anything to break the Kardashian sausage dressing movement. We need to go asexual in order to usher in a new sexiness. I’m all in! πŸ™‚

  2. Way to go, Jackie. So glad you’ve found a way of blending fashion and writing (well, you’ve always blended the two, hence your wonderful novel). Loved your articles. Keep it up (and in you jammies, too).

  3. Well bloody done! Even though I couldn’t be more far removed from the fashion world – other than for coveting what I cannot purchase – I really enjoy your articles.

  4. Hardly surprising Jackie, your articles are always a pleasure to read and very educational too, esp. for outsiders like me. Well done on all accounts!
    PS. Thanks for the intro to Edelkoort – no idea why she should proclaim her views on fashion being ‘dead’ or ‘obsolete’ as a ‘manifesto’ but, hey, it’s a hyperbole world we live in…
    PS1. Agreed with 1WriteWay – I’m sure this particular dress looks better on you xxx

  5. Thank you, Lia. I’m happy you enjoy reading them. That means a lot xo
    PS I haven’t taken the dress out for a spin yet but I’m looking forward to πŸ™‚
