Fashion in Burque
No, for serious
By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Feb 14 2012 2:29 PM ]
Most fashion writing bugs me. It’s usually snippy, sexist, classist, racist and, above all, anti-local. Women are the primary targets of criticism, everything is absurdly expensive, and white people fashion is the right fashion. Experts usually espouse advice in line with national trends that have nothing to do with your area.
And as we all know, ours is a region with identity.
Which is why I was thrilled to see some locals doing fashion right. The good people at Burque Style embarked on a mission to document our city. (Disclosure: One of their writers, Jessica Del Curto, used to work with me at the Daily Lobo.) The site doesn’t front a nasty tone. Instead, it celebrates the local fashion of regular people.
Today, the team’s posted a boo feature showcasing couples. It’s damn cute.
