I’ll be honest, I don’t know the first thing about fashion. My wife will turn on Project Runway and I usually just sit there with this befuddled look because I have no idea what’s going on or why a contestant using plastic tubing and cellophane to create a dress is something that should be reviled and praised. But then, I’m a sports guy so I’m not supposed to get it, right?
However, this magazine isn’t for me. It’s for you, the residents and visitors of Cabarrus County. It’s our job to tell you the stories that this county holds and introduce you to the extraordinary people that make up the sum of its parts. It is in that fashion (See what I did there?) that we present to you an entire issue dedicated to the trends and fashionistas that know more about color coordination and fabric textures than I could ever try to in my lifetime.
This month we’ll examine the history of fashion trends by decade. (Time to dig out those polyester suits!) We’ll also introduce you to local designers Sunya Folayan and Elizabeth Kowalski, who share how they got started and why. And Sarah Gay, manager of ClearWater Artist Studios, would like to give a shout-out to other local fashion designers. Lastly, we delve into the world of fashion psychology. (Tell me about your mother’s…dresses?)
In any case, if fashion is your thing, be prepared to be inspired as we take a trip down the runway just for you. You know, all this talk about fashion has just made me realize…I’m too sexy for this article.
