Heading a large advertising firm on Madison Avenue,
Her clients are New York's major fashion brands.
Marketing that quantifies desire, and the yes-men that surround her,
have slowly turned her into a pessimist over the years.
On her time off she lets go of her suit, lets down her hair,
and lets loose her ego by showing off her enticing curves.
If I told you the countryside suits you, would I deserve a slap across the face?
Although you do remind me of the scent of grapes and the rich soil before harvest.
Idle madames with their high-class perfume are no match for you.
I prefer your smile against the transparent skies of Provence
over the cluttered landscape of Paris any day.
In this season when brand new knits are at their brightest.
The girls have a radius of 6 yards surrounding them,
in which sighs of admiration, or even despair, are constantly heard.
A rare blend of self-indulgence and refinement, and exclusive sense of style
allows them to remain at the top of the fashion food chain.
Yuppies from Fifth Avenue who shamelessly attempt to woo them
are sure to pay a high price for their arrogance.
Her snobbish boyfriend invites her to a snobbish cocktail party.
He wants to show off his "somewhat different" girlfriend.
Without hesitation she tosses her paintbrush, and slaps together an outfit.
When cheapness by necessity also becomes policy, it can be an art form.
A muse on the verge of very bad taste is born.
She becomes a drop of poison in this pure, untainted gene pool.
New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai.
In Cities whose digitized borders are mapped by
chaos and greed, they suddenly appear.
Full of skill and motivation above the average citizen,
they wear an armor of Information, and survive on instinct.
To simply call it “functional” may seem a bit misleading
when referring to such forms that are so individualistic.
It is their testimony to standing apart from the pack.
Whether or not you’re aware of it, their Kind is proliferating.
A tour guide in Venice, she fascinates her audience
with stories far more interesting than those about
some Bride of the Adriatic.
Take her theories on art history, for example, that the progression
from the Renaissance and Baroque periods through to Impressionism,
is analogous to the flowing canal-streets of the city.
A seasoned tourist once mentioned that he had never met
a woman who blended into her surroundings more.
Born and raised here, she practically lives and breathes
—and wears in style—Venice, requiring no effort on her part.
A highly sought-after fashion designer
whose ancestor was a Native American Shaman,
her collections are standard wardrobe items
for any Manhattan upper-middle who's in the know.
Another crowd of uncreative journalists surround her,
asking for the secret to her success.
If she told the truth, would anyone believe her,
that her intuition endowed by her great-grandfather
have called upon the gods of fashion?
