Some may believe the the fashion epicenter lies in New York City, but I am a firm believer in the French when it comes to fashion powerhouses. Case in point: Balenciaga, Hermes, Emanuel Ungaro, Chloe, Isabel Marant and my all time favorite Louis Vuitton. These fashion houses have stood the test of time and their continual presentation of simply beautiful clothes prove that they are the ones we should be looking towards. New York, eat your heart out.
