This conversation sucks, so here's a shaved bear.

@gettoastyHave one that's like a year old and it shrinks a little in the dryer but stretches back out. Mostly hang dry though. Have another that I just bought and washed for the first time this weekend and no noticeable stretching from hang drying. I don't think you should worry about it.

Not much to do over that way but you can get to NW and downtown pretty easily from there, and the inner east side via sellwood or downtown. bNot knowing anything about your tastes I recommend blue star donuts downtown cus they will change your life. I think there's a thread around that has people with lots of portland food recommendations. Hard to go wrong these days.

I might be out of town for much of August but if you want to get a beer with an Internet rando/lurker let me know when you're here.

 I mean my local art museum has some margiela pieces on permanent collection, these are hardly niche artists.  Yes you can physically make decent clothes with no knowledge of fashion history, probably, but that's not a good excuse for 'fashion students' to be totally ignorant.

ICA?

No, MFA. They might rotate it out sometimes but it's frequently there, in the contemporary section.

This is blatantly false and the fact that your knowledge of a set of practices, representations, acceptable objectives, institutions, technical terms and even social practices at large DOES influence your "aesthetic taste" is the very reason why people like Dubuffet sought to get rid of all of those influences with art brut.

lol, all these people talking about fashion school... Ay yi yi.

I went to school for fashion, in fact, I have a diploma for it!

Some students know more than others about other designers, but the truth of it is, back when I went to school, you couldn't find full collections on the internet. We had to rely on the seasonal collection magazines that we had to travel to NYC to buy and they were $150 per issue. There were separate ones for Mens and womens and Milan and Paris. So that's at least $600 per season just to look at the collections. When everyone did their interships, all of us ransacked our employers for old magazines that we could bring back to school and trade and share.

I spent most of my spare $$$ while in school on bus tickets to NYC and buying fabric there. I didn't have a single cent left to buy decent food, let alone designer clothes.

We learned about Coco Chanel and Bonnie Cashin as far as history of fashion. Primarily I learned how to make patterns, how to sew, knit, fashion illustration, etc. The actual skills are what is taught in a fashion program, not Margiela.

...And there is a whole separate degree for Textile design.

Fat people, for example, do not have to look monstrous. Dressed correctly, as fat West African women often are, they can even achieve a magnificence that does not preclude elegance.

Dalrymple is a racist, classist cunt. He's the kind of idiot who thinks people make culture but then proceed to tell us individual choices not culture make people.

Serving no purpose whatsoever, he's not using specialized language to convey more directly complex concepts that would require long explanations (think certain philosophical terms) or even to achieve some sort aesthetic objective, he's just showing off in the lamest way. Orwell must be turning in his grave.
