I need to pour out!!! I have been reading of 13-16 year olds starting their brands/being ahead of their game when it comes to being a “Style Blogger”,and almost taking over a fashion editor’s seat at New York Fashion Week’s most sought after designer’s front row!
I am not kidding when I say this, I feel so backward, I have not been able to sleep! I am not saying Anna Wintour has competition,but rest of us, we better pull up our socks, before we are rendered obsolete, by the Gen Z!
Well,now that I have gone on a rant, I will let the sensible side of my head talk, Few reasons why the Gen Z is where it is at:
PDA/Mobile Phone/Laptop Freedom ( My friend’s 2-year-old Niece knows how to unlock my iPhone and start her favorite app…On the other hand I did not how to use T9(or auto correct) till I was 19! Shame on you Diana!
Blogosphere exposure, which is so important, this really means, you don’t have to save your pennies to get that one expensive magazine to know what to wear/not to wear.
I do wish I was born in this generation though, but who knows Gen Z shall be envious of some 5-year-old blogging and Modelling , 2 years from now.Fine (NOT) example is the French Brand Jours Après Lunes, is really advertising lingerie for 4-12 year old girls.Gasp! I know!Let’s not even start that conversation!
On the other hand, I do get inspired when I am walking on the street and come across youngsters who are so aware, of what to wear and where to wear, and what looks good on them, it just creates an aura of confidence around them. A confidence which is surely going to go a long way.
I was writing an article on Coloured Denim, when I came across this sister duo, who oozed out this comfortable confidence, I am talking about.
You know that they made an effort, and that was the attractive bit.
So here are my soul sisters.
Niamh, I am sorry, but thank you for mailing in. I hope I have done justice to your style! xx
