Rants & Raves

Edited by Ashe Mischief
I was taken aback when going through the submissions this week– there  were so many powerful, strong, opinionated pieces that I felt really  taken aback.  With overwhelming positivity or negativity, the fashion  community is finding it’s voice– and making themselves heard! The fashion community is great at sharing the voice of others, and  we’ve got several fabulous interviews to prove it.  From Derek Lam at  Poetic & Chic and White Rabbit’s interview with Irish woman Sinead  Doyle (along with my own interview with Amelia Arsenic at Dramatis  Personae), there are voices for everyone.  We’ve got bloggers ranting on  the lack of premium denim in plus-sizes at Denim Debutante (hell  yeah!), and some showcasing inspirational figures like KOOS (at  M.I.S.S.), Philip Crangi (at Eternal Masquerade), and Maria Felix (at  Jewelry Whore).
There were so, so many great links this week, it really was hard to  narrow it down to 2o. Check out the full listing of Links  à la Mode here.
