Ashley Rowe, Toronto-based designer for Miss Rowe, has been lauded for her all-white, perfectly executed debut SS08 collection. But I question whether she achieved one of her ultimate goals. According to Inside Fashion (Nov 07): "All white was all right for Miss Rowe, designed by former Holt Renfrew staffer Ashley Rowe - in fact, it was the lack of a high-quality, fashion forward yet affordable blouse for her HR interview that lead to the line's creation."
Miss Rowe offers us the following blouse for a steal at $450.
I understand that fashion can be expensive, but it irks me when something is framed as being highly affordable when it's not. Especially when said thing is a white shirt.
