Resurgence Detroit - Ann Yee Spring 2014

I love a designer who creates on a cerebral level and an aesthetic one.  Ann Yee's spring 2014 collection for NY Fashion Week was first inspired by the history of urban Detroit.  She thought about its decayed architecture and economic state and now the progressing resurgence as a city.  How did she translate this on a fashion level?

There were industrial colors of steel grey and concrete softened with some pale blue and pink.  Her silhouettes in woven items had architectural elements mixed with detailed knitwear design.  Metallics were used in the fabrics, accessories and styling as tribute to the automotive industry.  The star print in her presentation was one created from a series of photographs taken by her cousin and brother of the city.  Images of iconic Detroit buildings, graffiti, urban corners showed that even the simplest parts of a community can be beautiful.

Currently it seems like Wordpress is the top blogging platform out there right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
