This past fashion week we attended the Fall 08 Wayne presentation. The inspiration for the collection was aviation and though no specific mention was made to Amelia Earhart, she popped into our minds as a likely source of inspiration. This photo, taken in 1928, shows Earhart's slick, tomboyish style which, eighty years later, could blow any modern fashionista right out of the water. Earheart was a rebel who broke records, smiled coyly, and wore low-slung silk blouses. We'll spare you the look of the day from the corner of Mott Street (though an admirable outfit can always be found) in favor of someone whose style went beyond trousers and blouses.
