About last night...TIFF's 'The Gospel According to André' , @andreltalley this was a show stopper for me. So much love ❤️ and admiration for this man and what he has brought to the world of fashion and how he has defined style. Thank you @dirwoodmcdarkleson and @mykeywood for this extra special TIFF treat 💗😘 My love of fashion and appreciation for style stems from bridging a challenging relationship with my mother.
Looking to connect with her, at a young age I quickly determined that she had a deep love for fashion so I perused her Vogue magazines @voguemagazine and found a language, a platform, on which we could communicate 🗣. I also discovered @thejeannebeker Jeanne Beker's 'Fashion Television' 📺 on Sunday nights when we could sit together and eagerly assess collections and shows. I still covet my mothers two piece Chanel suit that she wore as her 'going away' outfit after her wedding, the epitome of chic 👌🏻 She was and still is a practical women so she didn't indulge in the frivolity of fashion but had a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship, fabrics and textiles of fashion. She had a discerning eye for the cuts and fabrication of beautiful pieces that I look for and swoon 💞 over to this day. A bond formed over this world and it's never left me. We have a deep loving relationship now that I very much attribute to starting because of fashion 🙏🏻 For me, now, fashion and style are fun 💃🏼, creative, a portal into another world at times and a true form of self expression and who I am.
