    I would like to think that it is; but perhaps not in the manner that people are accustomed to- maybe through the manipulation of brain waves or synesthesia and not the actual release of scent...

    Re: Fashion shows.

    Fashion shows are mainly for fashion buyers and the press, but I suppose what a fashion show is varies according to the designer; some have a very conceptual approach to their collections which can...

    Re: Who's your favourite designer?
