She looks great.
However, I am not quite sure what to think of unfinished edges. This is seen quite often. It is presented as style. However, I think it would reduce manufacturing costs and increase profits.
What do others think of this look?

I don’t think it would reduce manufacturing cost because it is a fashion item and probably only a few-ish were made. It is much easier to make any garment the “traditional way” b/c patterns and processes are already set up, it is more mindless for the sewers. They also have to do a very tiny stitch along the edge to keep the fabric from fraying tooo much, it is a lot of work to look so undone.
Like I said under the photo, I love when you mess with a classic in a subtle way.

This screams of homelessness…what does this have to do with style? It’s fake.

I own clothes that have frayed edges and I’m not homeless. As a design detail, it is no different than a ruffle, just part of the design landscape.

“Lazer cut” raw edged outerwear was all the rage in the late 1990′s and as late as 2000. I recall that Donna Karan did an exemplary example of a lazer cut trench in treated cotton about that time. The edges gradually frayed with wear. It was a terrific coat.

Is this what they mean by deconstructed? Actually, I love it because everything about her is sooo put together and the fray edges really comes out.
