Christa de Carouge and Style Versus Fashion


Just bought a book showing designer Christa de Carouge’s stuff. She does these great, huge, blanket-y, drape-y, eighties-ish things.

Cool quote: De Carouge “rejects fashion in favour of style.”

More on style vs. fashion: “Real style depends on the individual, not an industry. Made up of a hint of intelligence, a bit of wit, a sense of knowing — it has relatively little to do with spending money, which is anathema in an era that puts a price on everything.”
