On Trend with Vintage--Calvin Klein Spring and Fall 2011

One of the collections I liked most during Fashion Week for Fall 2011 was the modernism of Francisco Costa's minimalism for Calvin Klein.  Yet it felt as though I was having deja vu.  I couldn't help but be struck by similarities in the new collection for Calvin Klein and my vintage collection for GlamAmor.  This was particularly the case when I saw Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana, and Kate Bosworth sitting front row at the runway show. It was as if they were modeling GlamAmor or something...they all wore dresses from Costa's Spring and Fall lines that eerily echoed ones from the GlamAmor Store.  I take this as yet another reminder of how much of today's fashion continues to cull inspiration from the past.  And it also speaks to just how modern vintage can be, especially when it comes from a carefully curated collection such as GlamAmor.
