Fashionista Fantasy

A model prepares backstage prior to the Guo Pei show during Paris fashion week

Fashion’s extravagance

balloons in a swathe of fabric

It’s colour and arrogance

Knows not how to diminish, lessen or shrink

 

It boasts and boosts,

It crows and clarions,

It swells and sings

 

Taffeta, silk satin

Sways and flows.

Clings and trails,

Films and froths

 

Its ambience attracts

cameras and comment

its overblown sense of itself

bloats and billows

 

Beyond the ordinary

to amplify the extraordinary

to strut with inherent conceit
