Just like most of everyone else these days, I left the city to go on a "relaxing" vacation. This means I was more than likely to work from my jeep on my road trip, make phone calls along the drive and send emails once I had arrived at my destination. In the mornings I hiked. In the evenings I rocked out to the latest country tunes at Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colorado. Yes, I live in Los Angeles and I am a sucker for all things country, including its music, outdoor activities and camping gear. So what?
It's a known fact that styles and trends in fashion are recycled over time. The hippy look is as popular today as it was in the 60s, fanny packs are back on the scene, and people are sporting plaid and leather more than any grunge rock star in the 90s. Truly talented designers understand that fashion isn't only about creating something completely new, but that it's just as important to take something old and re-work it into a great product that is both relevant and fashionable in the present.
