I am the honorable flamingo. What you read here might make you smile, make you think, or make you wonder. This is the world as I see it, from the view of a pink, long legged, slightly awkward bird.

Fashion Week

Well, it’s fashion week in New York City, and that means throngs of celebrities, lavish parties, and lots of reporters all hoping to catch a glimpse of the catwalk as designers parade out some of the most objectionable ensembles of the fall season. For instance, nothing says, “I have way too much money” quite as well as this little number on the right from Anna Sui. This one in particular happens to look like it was sewn together by someone with a fairly advanced case of Parkinson's disease. If that is a little too bourgeois for you, however, you can always try the outfit on the left designed by Daniel Vosovic. Vosovic is a new designer who was featured on a reality show called "Project Runway". He says that this outfit was inspired by the orchid, and I think it is safe to say, it takes pompous to a whole new level. Of course, arrogance in the fashion community is pretty much expected, as shown in a phone interview with Vosovic, in which he said "I say, if you can sleep comfortably in it, I don't want to see it on the street." This is a pretty pontifical statement, considering he is seen here standing next to a woman with the worst case of bed hair I have ever seen. How many times have you thought, "I would love to be a fashion designer" only to be plagued with doubts, "but I have no sense of style, I have no talent!" If this week can teach us anything, it is that you can be whatever you want to be, and the future has never looked so bright for blind fashion designers.
