The Seam: Fashion Stories of The Week

So, I’ve decided to add a weekly column of sorts.  A little summary for you on what has been going on in the oh so fabulous world of fashion.  I’m thinking a little of this, a little of that:  a little business, a little gossip, a little tech, a little human interest and a little fun to mix things up.

When I started this lovely little blog of mine one of my main goals was to educate my non fashion readers and I hope and think this is a step in the right direction.

Enjoy, tell me what you think, want more of, less of, etc.

So here it is, my very first . . .
