The Recessionista by Kumari Govender

THE RECESSIONISTA by Kumari Govender  –  May 2010

All curled up with my latest Cosmo, reflecting on the sluggish economy and tightening credit, this fashionista is going into serious withdrawal. I’ve heard a stream of catchphrases that describe the state of our global economy and recently stumbled upon an entirely apt neologism for fashion: recessionista. A humorous addition to the latest lexicon “recessionista” captures the de rigueur belt-tightening that appears to be the most recent trend.

As Style Bloggers around the globe tell us to embrace thrift as the new norm, I balk at the thought of rummaging through piles of dusty troves. Call it a global reality check, with the country officially in a recession I too have embraced a new frugality with fashion. But there’s a silver lining in the dark Prada clouds…
