Survivor Taking On Fashion & Chuck Taylor Revival Posted on 27 Jul 23:18 , 0 comments
Monica Singh is about as fearless as they come and my guess is that her impending plunge into the fashion world will be no less heroic. Actually she's no newcomer - she attended the Fashion Institute of New Delhi before a spurned suitor retaliated with an acid attack which left her disfigured. She might have been down for a while, but now that she will be attending the Parsons School of Design she's definitely not out and she's the one to keep your eye on in the future.
I've never owned a pair of Chuck Taylors in my entire life and I'm feeling a little moody and self-conscious about it. I had a pair of blue-and-white Vans with checkers on the side, and a ton of Keds. I had some hot pink Keds in high school - but no Chuck Taylors. According to Paul Daugherty 'Chucks never die', so it looks like there's still a chance for me. I'll share a little secret with you - Vans and Keds used to hurt my little tender adolescent feet, so I knew C.T.'s would be trouble without even trying a pair on and I was right. But they are back and address that little foot rubbing problem with cushy soles and big-toe-friendly design. So don't be surprised if you see me at the farmer's market with a black pair on my feet.
