"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. 
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas,
the way we live, what is happening."
-Coco Chanel-

ideas, imaginations, designs are not subjective but objective. it exhibits properties of high cohesion and loose coupling. No design is good or bad, it just succeeds or fails differently. For that, i give these young designers a standing ovation for their devotion.
