PICTURE: #12 IN SIXTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
LUCIA HWONG GORDON TALKS ABOUT HER 12th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Michael Kors dress and watch
Lizard purse from Buenos Aires
Bulgari belt bought in Germany
Giuseppe Zanotti strappy sandals
Tiger’s eye bracelets from Istanbul and Eric Javits straw hat
Bulgari snake ring
Marquise jewelers necklace.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
As I acquired these things during my travels, I enjoyed assembling my favorite things in bronze and beige into an outfit for an afternoon in the city with friends.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
The outfit always spontaneously evolves depending on the new accessories acquired. If I wear the taupe alligator belt, I will carry the matching alligator handbag from Argentina.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10! This outfit always puts me in a social mood!
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
I love leopard print. The Michael Kors cut of the dress is feminine and flattering. I can run around the city all day looking fresh.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Yes! To a luncheon with European friends
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
The process of acquiring these items during travels or social shopping outings in Buenos Aires, Montreal or Istanbul is like stringing pearls of memories and experiences through clothing.
