  • Aesthetics + Economics is my attempt to find an outlet for an intense interest in fashion and design in general. My aims are twofold: to find interlocutors so that I might refine my knowledge of the inner workings of fashion and the design-oriented business world, and to share that interest and information with fellow fashion devotees! Comments are VERY welcome. Please tell me what you think, whether it be to agree, disagree, argue, or enlighten me.

Why should you care if its in a musuem when so much money was raised for charity off of one gown. It was for a good cause and the dress was so important in fashion that it will always be remembered no matter where the dress is at.

I think it is important that you can see the dress in person because it has more of an effect than seeing it in the movie. We should share with each fashion lover to another.
