PICTURE: #9 IN TEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
FLORA COLLINS TALKS ABOUT HER 9TH OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
I used a Paola Quadretti muff, an H&M coat and a necklace from benefit gift bag.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love animal print mixed with color. This is a great going out outfit for me as it combines vibrancy with nuanced grey and black, a favorite color amalgamation.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
The spontaneous part of this outfit is the muff.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The fabric and print make this outfit. The spots on the leggings match the coat and muff precisely. The coat and muff both have a furry texture, embodying winter chic. The necklace adds a bit of needed contrast.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I will absolutely repeat this outfit this winter.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
When I first composed this outfit last March, it was spontaneous. I was proud of myself for realizing the resemblance between the leggings and coat. I feel fashionable and pleased with myself when I wear this outfit.
