Without obsession, fashion as we know it wouldn't exist.
Most often, we think of the woman obsessed, with a look, a mood, a feeling, the desire for which fashion can satiate, or merely with a singular item — the perfect handbag, that wantonly embellished shoe — that she must obtain just because. Then, there’s the deep obsession of the designer who each season conjures a heady statement and sets out to express it to perfection in his or her runway collection.
