Holding up a mirror to what we wear.
ONE WHO DRESSES is a digital space dedicated to understanding personal style. It arose out of my desire for a forum that considered what we wear in its many dimensions, far beyond what is seen on the surface.
You are ONE WHO DRESSES if you invest time and attention in what you wear and are inspired by the power of fashion as a vehicle for self-expression, and you equally care about other matters: the environment, human rights, your own personal fulfillment and growth, and our collective humanity. You want to read about fashion in the context of all that interests you as a strong modern woman. This space exists to do just that.
The mission is simple: to celebrate creativity and pursue originality in style through thoughtful reflection on what we wear, why we wear it, and how that matters.
This space is a living record on fashion seen through my lens. I think and write about fashion in the context of the whirring and wondrous world we live in. I have long struggled to reconcile my love for fashion with my orientation towards issues of social and environmental justice. I have long believed that fashion is a substantive construct that's all too often mistaken for one that is superficial. And I have long dreamed about creating a place, this place, to delve deeply into why I get dressed, what I am trying to say with my clothes, who I am trying to be in my clothes, and how I can dress in a way that best allows me to feel whole.
