Paris Fashion Week: Stella McCartney Fall 2012 RTW

I just wanted to say, now that Paris Fashion Week has officially come to a close, that Stella McCartney was way ahead of the pack in terms of her boldly versatile and chic runway pieces coupled with her ethical stance on materials. There was a lot of exotic fur, feathers, and leather showcased as expressions of 'luxury' during the past week in Paris, and McCartney, in my opinion, is just so much more evolved as a designer and contemporary icon. Perhaps it takes a team of women designing for women to get this? Either way, I have a whole new level of respect for someone who can send models out on the runway in faux-leather heels and hourglass tweed silhouettes. Luxury is a state-of-mind and definitely a form of awareness.
