In a few days we will put on our best outfit, gather around a table and ask "Why is this night different from all the other nights?"
That's actually a good question. Why is this night different?
There are things that I guess will never change, like the muddy rain on a sparkly clean window before "Seder" night, or that existential discussion on whether to "continue to read the "Agada" (tale) after the meal?"
Though a season has passed, Spring is blooming around us and change is in the air. So what awaits us in Spring – Summer 2016? And what awaits me??
Thankfully, I have at least one answer. It's going to be happy and blooming!
Countless variations on the buttoned up white shirt will begin to flourish as well as garments that are made of please and tinier tighter knife pleat fabrics. 70's inspired pieces made of suede and a designer net will pop up like mushrooms after the rain. Victorian-era influences style, hints of Spanish culture, floral prints and off-the-shoulder silhouette as well as ruffles will begin to appear in shops. Designs inspired by lingerie. Fringed. Orange color and yellow. Large plaids… yes! All at once!
Don't worry, I'll be here at eight thirty to make order of it all… that won't change either ;- )
Happy Spring Holiday!
