Styles can be cultivated, thus enriching the persona of the individual. One can arrive at an iconic status. Given time it develops, which simply cannot be acquired over night. It therefore requires a certain amount of passion and spontaneity. This is probably gifted to certain individuals. While others need to work hard to find that precise mix of pizzazz and zing that makes them jingle, a true fashion icon will glide into your heart and leave an impression for a lifetime. It is not what they wear but how they present themselves. It is therefore the way they fashion their ideas, which complements their personalities. I write this piece as a tribute to these women.
