Every week, Fashion Illustrated features a drawing created especially for Final Fashion.

wear a gown to work day

This week’s illustration is inspired by Auntie Fashion’s May 29 2009 event, Wear A Gown to Work Day, as well as this iconic poster of soviet workers smiting the lazy.  I was wondering what to put under the hammer – an Ugg?

    1. Thanks so much! It’s ICONIC!

      True story: Last night Marjie Withajay visited my house to watch Project Runway while she was in town. She took one look at me and said “Are you wearing Uggs?” Of course I said “No, I’m wearing house slippers. I do that when I put my feet up on the furniture.”

    2. It’s terrifying enough for me to not wear a gown just to spite the communists.

    3. Beautiful shade of red!

      I used to do that in high school: I made and wore a blue — always blue, don’t ask me why — gown for every literary period we read. By the time we were reading Jane Eyre, I took up the whole frickin’ hallway. Accessorized with big-ass boots under my gowns to stomp down unruly frosh, of course.

    5. Auntie – glad you approve!

      Rebecca – I knew you would have something to say about that – though I have no idea what it means.

      Nadia – I can just picture you doing this! I approve, I don’t think it could be possible to be any fashion-nerdier.

    6. I’d play along but I’m just not sure how it would go over with my co-workers.

    7. eeee… sorry
      Communism makes me emotional and reading my post again, i can see why it doesn’t make any sense.

      What I meant was … communist posters usually make me want to do the exact opposite of what they are suggesting.

    8. Rebecca – what if its a parody poster? Are you saying you won’t be wearing a gown to work?

      Jesse – thats the point, your coworkers should be wearing gowns too.

    9. sigh…
      one of these days, I’ll develop a sense of humour.

      That was a bit of a kneejerk exclaimation mark in my head.

      And yes, I going to try to see if I can get away with it. I think I am going to slowly try to ease my work into the idea starting with tomorrow. I’m going to wear that Ports dress and see if raise any eyebrows.

    10. Excellent idea, I am going to spread the word!

      I think Uggs or Crocks would suit the best under that hammer!
