My newest fave magazine!!!
The other day, I was watching the history of shopping. It amazed me because the idea of department stores didn’t came from women but rather the opposite sex. Ladies, let us all thank Aristide Boucicaut! The man behind Le Bon Marché, the first department store located in Paris built in mid-18th century. Down under, during the early 19th century, a Russian named Sidney Myer created one of Australia’s largest department store, Myer.
See how these men was able to manipulate us women. They also found one of our greatest weaknesses, clothes, bags, shoes, etc. They know we have a flair for fashion and made use of it.
Almost all the great fashion designers were men too!
I suddenly remembered the movie, What Women Want. I reckon men really has the power to know what we want but sometimes they fail to discern it. Agree? But with shopping, they did not fail to know what women want.
