It would be mortifying to the feelings of many ladies, could they be made to understand how little the heart of a man is affected by what is costly or new in their attire... Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter.
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“Of course, I’m not naive enough to think these brands suddenly care about the human rights of models. After all, seven years have passed since I spoke out. It should not have taken this long.”

Jamie Peck on Terry Richardson Controversy  |  The Guardian
The fashion system is undergoing a generation-defining disruption and retail, at least in a traditional sense, is dying. Yet, many still believe it's just a cycle. But it's time to acknowledge that these changes are real so we can focus on looking forward not backward.
