Everyone is a fashionista and no one's a designer. No more bad fashion shows…please

Are all fashion shows bad? No. Have we seen alot of great talent from the music, to the designers, to the great detail of what's presented? Yes. Is all this outweighed by the onslaught of bad clothing, worse models, over hyped promo, second rate deejays and overall lack of vision? You know the answer. It's not that I don't enjoy a good fashion show, we all do. Like many guys I know now days, not only do I dig watching great looking ladies strut their stuff I have learned to dig the cloths and found my own sense of what's hot, not to mention a barometer for what's new and old when it comes to fashion trends. But all this has seemed to go out the window because every other day there's a new lame fashion show, that just seems to be living on the reputation of a great event that happened not to long before it. The main problem is local talent modeling national brands. If you've been to a fashion show is NY, Paris, London, Tokyo, or even LA, CHI, MIA,  you know what those national brands are supposed to look like. The main issue always comes back to looking for independents. If your show features local designers who's cloths haven't been seen all over the world already but mix in some national/international flavor for balance and taste that's great. But alot of times you see people trying to do their best America's Top Model rendition and well it's nothing you should be paying your hard earned cash for. So word to the wise, keep it indie, keep it fresh and you'll always be apprecaited.
