The universal language of fashion 

It dawned on me, as I was aimlessly wandering the streets of Paris this morning in search of a strong black coffee, that fashion is an incredibly versatile language. Dressing well is a form of social currency – an exchange that is recognised in city after city.

  
It is more than simply clothing and fabric. It provides us with an automatic identity to the people we pass on the pavement. Fashion can make you approachable. It can also make you terrifying and extremely avoidable. More than anything, it is important in establishing power and social status. How we dress reveals a lot about ourselves… Especially here on the streets of Paris. 

Something I have already noticed is that Parisian woman are not afraid to hold back when it comes to style. There is a boldness to the power women of these streets – fabrics are flaunted. Even simple grey coats are sleeker than those of London streets. There’s an air of grace – but also stark confidence. I love it.
