The Business of Fashion

 When I read the announcement for Moore's Net Nights ..... 

Net Nights at Moore, Trend Reports, The Business of Fashion

I thought, hmmmmm this should be interesting.   Well it was interesting..... and soooooo much fun!  The night began with cocktails and people watching...

Student designers from area schools showed up in their own creations and I had more than one flashback to sophomore year of high school.  The Eighties are back!  I'm a little envious, you know what they say, if you wore it the first time around, you  can only add an accessory the second time around.  In other words, The Style Shepherd can not go all out 80's, but I CAN accessorize.  So yes, that's what I did... the all black fashion uniform and a John Wind Maximal Art statement necklace (sorry, no pic).

The cocktail hour went by really quickly... time really does fly when you're having fun.  We all tucked into our seats, ready to listen to Janice Lewis, take the guest speakers and audience on a rip roaring good time.  Let's face it, any time a discussion begins with 'the business of'..... we could be in for a long night.  Not at Moore, and not when Janice has the microphone, I felt like I was having tea with five of my good friends.

..... Speaking of the Business of Fashion, I wanted to share this video from one of my favorite blogs Business of Fashion.com.
