Why we love fashion:  it’s ability to transport and elevate via expression of creativity in the face of almost any political and economic reality.

I don’t really remember much about 1994 but I do recall this photo.  Those were the Clinton years and I believe things were just beginning to feel like they were on the upswing.  These 90s Gianni Versace ad campaigns manage to stay tapped in to 1980s exuberance and I love them.  I love that they are bright and energetic and not dark and edgy and stylized.  And, oh how I love a bevy of supermodels!

Nearly twenty years later, they are still useful for both escape and motivation…enjoy.

This photo haunts me and has haunted me since I flipped open that issue of Vogue in 2009.  The esprit de youth mixed with beauty, $ and the brink of fame is a potent cocktail.  This is my mindseye reference to joie de vivre.
