The quickening spread of trends

Most everyone, the world over, romanticises the warm hues of autumn. There’s a commonality. Commonality in fashion trends, across different cultures and with such speed, can be surprising, however. Take the sheer maxi dress trend as a prime example. Slated as a 2011 trend for the West, here it is as a part of a Autumn / Fall 2010 editorial in the Russian edition of Glamour.

Russia’s own take on fashion is, of course, not that far removed from the Western take in the least. But take new media, with all its minute-by-minute fashion coverage, and globalisation out of the equation and I suspect it would be quite some time before this D&G maxi dress reached editorials outside of a few locales.

The look comes from Glamour Russia’s We Heart NY editorial, which you can see below.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
