Maggie Norris: Street Fashion

Coat/ Sweater/ Romper: Designed by herself ; Hat: Scotland, Tartan wool, Boots: Prada; Necklace/ Belt: Santa Fe; Purse: Louis Vuitton

Its sort of hard for me to explain to you why this is an interesting post for both S and I. Lets talk about the photography first. If you notice, in all the pictures S has one connecting theme. That theme is a window of light [square in shape] somewhere on Maggie.  It is a physical blocking of light and shade, which we only hear of in the abstract by artists and never know what it actually looks like. Well now you can see it.  And to think that she found this source of light in the space we were in just by chance and worked around it to capture it in different positions is incredible.

Fashion wise this is an important post cause as you have seen in last week’s post on Christina Viera and you will see a few more in the coming weeks, I am sort of bumping into incredible women of a generation ahead of me that are total fashion rock stars. And they are sincerely inspiring me. Maggie Norris is a couture designer whose work is impeccable and so luxurious that if I ever saw one of her pieces in person I may be scared to touch it. She was a designer with Ralph Lauren for many years after which she started her own label called Maggie Norris Couture worn by many celebrities for red carpet events.

And to think that after such accomplishments she was totally down to earth and super excited to add me to her facebook teaches you to stay humble in life, no matter what. I will never forget that. And I hope we all don’t.
