From what little I’ve seen, today’s collections seem to me a bit backward-looking, though I don’t wish to be overly critical.
I have the distinct impression that what I consider a minimum service of our profession — knowing how to make a woman beautiful and allowing her to look her best through my clothes — is less of a consideration by designers today.
