style brick road: runway to rack.

runway to rack.

Games. A joyful way of living I'd say.

I've always been intrigued how only small fragments of lion brands' (e.g. Stella McCartney, Celine, Comme Des Garçons, Chanel, etc.) collections are shown on the runway.
I know it's part of the fashion industry - showing what's showable, selling what's sellable. I'm down with that. But I still feel kinda excited when I go to a department store and see a piece from the runway I remember seeing in a magazine or online. Dunno why, but it's kind of a cheap excitement. It's probably because I'm from Eastern Europe.

But still, a little game I find very amusing to play now and then is one I introduced to the world - and it's called Matchy-match, Fashion edition. 

So, to be brief and efficient:
1. Find a runway look
2. Find the piece from the runway in the shop/online
3. Feel happy
4. The one with the highest score gets a kiss

So, it's quite benign and fun - try it and you won't regret it. 
Now I've prepared a little demo game board, just so you can try it. :)

(ps. I haven't gone nuts, it's just for fun!)
