MAPLE LEOPARD: Why Style is Eternal

Why Style is Eternal

Style is Eternal
What is style, and why is it eternal?  I'm sure you've heard the quote by Yves Saint Laurent, "Fashion fades, style is eternal." Style is how you make a look uniquely yours.  Fashion fads come and go, and rarely stay around long.  Iconic pieces used to create a one-of-a-kind look, will stand the test of time.

The Bowes Museum and Foundation Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent are collaborating to create the
Yves Saint Laurent: Style is eternal  exhibition. This collection will be a display of the French designer's work and life. The YSL event will spotlight  the detailed components of his vision, and the immense impact it's had on fashion.  It will define the way we understand the female wardrobe in modern times.

In celebration of the STYLE IS ETERNAL exhibition, Farfetch  has chosen a few fashion bloggers to participate in a contest.  I was asked to put together a  set around the Iconic Saint Laurent Le Smoking Tuxedo jacket. This look is to represent the Frenchman's most classic pieces for today's woman. 
   
I'm so excited I was chosen to compete in this contest! One lucky blogger will be awarded a voucher to shop on this fabulous site.  Oh yes girls,  my imagination is already running wild with the damage I will do If I win! What is your favorite style that had endured the test of time?

Alright Friday is here again, enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting!
