Hi everyone. I haven't posted anything in a while mainly because of work and the warm weather has kept me outside and away from computers. Today this post will unfortunately be sad.....
Yves Saint Laurent died in his Paris home yesterday after a long illness at the age of 71. I believe he changed the way women dress and feel in the workplace with the trim pantsuits and tuxedos. I heard this quote today and I believe it sums him up. "Chanel gave women freedom" and Saint Laurent "gave them power". Laurent became head of the Dior fashion house at the age of 21 after Dior died in 1957. Laurent had an extremely impressive life and he inspires me to be more ambitious.
So for now here are some photos of some of his work that will make us all remember him and smile.:-)
