Som may Say

My most recent obsession is with Peter Som's Spring '07 line. Som has been on the scene for sometime, but has in these past few years, upon gaining recognition in the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Initiative as one of the top ten finalists.

I was flipping through my November Vogue, reading Life With Andre who wrote a good 300 on Mr. Som's work and I became enthralled by the ethereal beauty of his gowns. If there are two things I love in this world they are whimsey and elegance, and his collection contains both of these elements.

As I've formerly apologized for, my coverag
e of Fashion Week was rather delayed and not as detailed as I would have liked it to be. In the throes of a quarter life crisis sometimes fashion has to take a backseat to things like, say, finding a better job. In any event, I'm just going to post some of my favorites and let us all take a moment to remember that the whole world gets better when you're looking at a pretty dress.
