The Wren Fall lookbook takes cues from the laid-back styles of starving artists. With wide-brimmed hats, bangs, black-framed glasses, socks with shoes, paint-splattered jackets and trousers, turbans and oversized cardigans, the collection is all about mixing and matching.

Designer Melissa Coker's eye in the Wren Fall lookbook has created some very wearable ensembles perfect for any wannabe artists.

Implications - The image of the powerful businessman or business woman has typically been a force behind the creation of professional and more formal attire. However, attitudes towards professional dress and attire are changing, and many consumers are embracing more casual attire that express their unique individuality. Paying homage to the "starving artist" through clothing design is just one way in which fashion is rebelling against the traditional image of the power suit.
