Fashion and its Triumphs of Engineering

And here we have an incredible outfit by Francois Emyric that surely qualfies as a triumph of engineering only slightly less impressive than the Brooklyn Bridge! I love fashion that amply demonstrates the high level of design that goes into these clothes, working off of and highlighting the female form (a wonderous design itself!). I love the combination of form and function, utility and aesthetics. Most of all, I simply love it when people put in hours and hours of work to make something well. Where we live, and on our budget, we are often awash in cheap clothes, food, and stuff. This sort of fashion raises my spirits. There's something beautiful, and meaningful, about seeing someone devote themself to just making a thing really well.
