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
