Did you know or do you even care....
I was watching the news this morning and learned something new. I didn't know that it was Yves Saint Laurent that reworked the rules of fashion for women. Laurent introduced Pant Suits which I think for any professional woman is the best thing since sliced bread. Can you believe that when I began my professional career in 1995 that pant suits still were not being worn in my office. I remember walking in with my new pant suit on and was told "Kristen we don't wear pant suits in this office" I was so appalled that I continued to wear pant suits and felt like such a rebel. Little did I know that it was Laurent who created this fab trend. I think pant suits really level the playing field for women in the work force. A special thank you to Yves Saint Laurent for breaking the "rules"
P.S. Why does it take someone passing for us to learn more about their legacy.
