Fashiona on the FAME remake


The current affair with all things 80's continues with Friday's release with FAME. Usually remakes tend to be more "sexy" than the original but the 2009 is decidedly more "tame" than the gritty 1980 version about gifted teenagers matriculating through what is now Laguardia.

The 2009 update that debuted on Friday September 25, is set in the present but still  nods to 1980' iconic fashion with leg warmers, over sized sweatshirts...and  80's size egos... Kanye certainly isn't the first!!

Fashion gets in on the action  with the Italian activewear  company Freddy.  Freddy, which supplies dancewear to London's Royal Ballet and Milan's Teatro alla Scala is ALSO  selling FAME branded wear at Capezio.  So even if you can't dance, sing or act... you can at least dress the part.

Freddy looks for “Fame.”

Fashiona  (and many movie  critics) still favor the 1980 version and the catchy theme song as Irene Cara belted it out...Fashiona STILL  remembers the lyrics.

"I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame

I'm gonna live forever
Baby remember my name

Remember Remember Remember Remember Remember Remember Remember Remember "
