The second dress, from right to left… I am pretty sure that’s from the series of dresses like the one he designed for Björk for her Vespertine Live art. My favorite of the dresses and my favorite of Björk’s live concerts (specifically at NY Royal Opera House)
I enjoy following you, I like seeing what’s new and checking out new outfits even though I don’t use my time/money in doing it myself I still can’t get enough, I grew up doing this with my mom and it brings fond memories of me helping her design clothes. Your style and taste is right up my alley most of the times! All great! There’s just one thing that I’ve noticed more and more… You seem to focus mostly on:
-The cute girl rocking the outfit: Totally fine all the followers and myself envy her but that’s alright, that’s part of this, I get it I embrace it, I love it! Keep it up cute girl!
-The stylist who put the outfit together: We love you too, you make sense out of hipster out of hippie and random. You give a reason for certain items [that should have never existed] to live! We all hope some tacky reality star hires you and actually let you do your job so you can make the world a little better we pray that the money and their lack of taste doesn’t break your spirit!
-The photographer who took the cute pictures: You’re the wo/man! What would it be of that outfit if not in the desert? NOTHING. We love you too!
This is all fantastic! But you often fail to credit the designers of the actual clothes and to explain whether the look/image is part of their art or if it’s just a randomly-assembled-one-time-only outfit. I see the designer as an artist, as much as a painter or an sculptor. Right? I mean did you see Alexander McQueens exposition at The MET? If that’s not art I don’t know what is! I’d feel horrible if I posted painting by a new Brooklyn artist and not go above and beyond to find her name, so people know after all you’re using their art because you loved it too! You want people to see it too! When you’re posting you’re saying “Hey did you see this? It’s beautiful, right? This person_____ really is doing something right and we love it!!” or is it all only about posting cute pictures of cute outfits worn by cute girls and say “Hey I found this, ME!”
If you love fashion as you do (and I, as the daughter of a fashion designer, do too) you know that sometimes a little piece is part of the designer’s concept, brain, idea… Even if they are a small Baltimore designer with minor creds or if it’s a vintage article by a now-retired-grandma.
Please credit the designers as, often times, they are the artists of the whole look. Going an extra mile for it will make this experience so much more enjoyable for us.
One of the reasons/excuses I have for not writing on this blog as much as I’d like to be has been that I have been busting my ass on a new stage show. I’m super-proud of this show and it’s going to debut on the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre stage next Friday at 7:30pm. It’s called Doug…
