Oh, yesterday morning was fabulous. Woke up to find the newspapers pushed through the letterbox, made coffee, spotted a a few daffodils from my window, smiled, then settled down to read The Observer. The first story I turned to was the one promoting Alexa Chung as the face of the British Designer Collective at Bicester Village, which launches this Wednesday morning.
In it, the journalist and brilliant columnist Eva Wiseman attempts to discover what makes fashion work by visiting St Martins School of Art with Alexa Chung. I approve of this detective like approach to finding out the great mystery of fashion. However, Eva hasn't been around long enough to know that the mystery of fashion changes with the shifting sands season after season. But in her attempt to find out, she did stop by and visit The Great Oracle of Fashion. The Truth Teller herself, Professor Louise Wilson, and what Louise told her, which she printed verbatim, thrilled me and made me howl. Below is the exchange.
