Fashion Week at its best is a celebration of creativity and individuality, the way in which we use clothing and accessories to communicate to the world who we are and to what tribe we belong. New collections convey a designer’s vision of themselves and a shared culture, at the same time they provide us with fresh tools for our own expression. That this expression is a basic human instinct that happens daily far from the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris is sometimes easy to forget, but wonderfully inspiring to remember. So with the final week of Spring 2013 Fashion Week upon us, we present to you a couple out-of-the-box moments of personal style.
