If the runways are any indication - 2014 is going to be filled with bold, strong, sexy AND smart women. Basically, my dream come true. I always think it's such a shame that women don't dress more intellectually. And that doesn't mean looking like a librarian. What I mean is - for far too long women have been dressing like a schtick - "I'm a tomboy!" or a "biker chick" or a "minimalist" or... whatever. These are gimmicks. Because ultimately, what does wearing studs really say about a WOMAN? Is she progressive? Is she globally conscious? Does she think beyond her look?
This is where the future of design is headed - I believe. The aesthetic is... indescribable in one word. Instead, many will be used - words like sensual and subversive. It speaks to the true complex and articulate nature of women - those who don't hide behind costumes.
