Urban Fashion 2012: Men's Edition...

I saw a current GQ magazine cover featuring Denzel Washington on Facebook, and he is looking very sharp and sophisticated in the double breasted suit.  I can't believe he's 57 years old, he looks about 47!  (I find people looking younger than their ages now a days...)

Well, I wanted to focus on suits for men, but I was steered to urban fashion.  City clothes has so many personalities, from street clothes to three piece suits.  It's a fun category of fashion.

Art in Fabric Form - Avante Garde

For the past few weeks I've been watching Project Runway season 1 to the current one I'm watching now, season 7.  I have season 8; season 9 I don't have for some reason, and now I'm sorry I don't.  I'll make sure I have season 10 when it comes out though.

Season 4 and another season, I think season 7, had challenges to make avante garde clothing.  These were some of my favorite episodes. Guess what my blog is about today?  Yes, you've guessed it, avante garde designs.  Bold and way out there, some of these clothes were made solely (I think) to entertain the audience.  I'm sure a few people would wear them in this present time, although a few of the clothes shouldn't be worn until the year 2020.
