Fashion style and trend news and events have been occurring at a persistently frenetic pace. So what do you do when you haven’t posted in forever and your very busy and you just have little time? A picture ( i.e. video) is worth a thousand words!
To prime the pump, jump start the figurative battery … or get me in the frame of mind to start writing again I am posting this video of the Funkshion fashion show at Fashion Week in Miami Beach. A fun, up-beat video that shows what this music-fashion event is all about. Excerpts from the press release for the March 26-29, 2008 fashion show is below in case you haven’t heard.
