Haha, I said I wasn't sure if I like Dries, I think a lot of his clothes make you look like the quirky youngest child of a really wealthy family.  But I really love some of it and hate some of it.  I think overall I really like him as a designer.  The ugly stuff isn't really 'wtf was he thinking' so much as if I was rich and insane I might wear that.

 

I haven't looked through too many of his collections though, which is why I edited it out.

I don't always love his runway shows, but when I see the stuff in person, I almost always like it.

At college there were a few Malaysian students that were Muslim and the girls lived on the floor above me next to a bunch of my friends, so sometimes when I was hanging out on the floor I would pass them on their way to and from the shower and they wouldn't have their head scarves on and one had this really sweet smile because she got all giggly when she walked by redface.gif

Do the hips on the Givenchy FW09 jumpsuit-thing bother anyone else?

Really wish Rad had continued on in the vein of Rad Hourani #7 and Rad Hourani #5 instead of branching off into the also-weird diffusion line.

Bringing this back from the dead - HuffPo just published an interesting retrospective on how the fashion industry has become commercialized in the last ~20 years.

post #222 of 1124
^That's pretty interesting. Fashion has certainly blown up. Makes me wonder if, had I been born twenty years earlier, before there was so much hype around clothes, i would have been interested at all. In part it's the hype that makes fashion into entertainment rather than just clothes, if that makes any sense. On a related note, the piece shows how New York has changed too. Odd to think Barney's used to be on 7th and 17th st., where Loehmann's is now.

I don't think fashion is any more popular now than it was in the past, just expensive (designer) fashion.  Most people who have been into clothing for a long time were into thrift/vintage stuff at that time.

Dude, it's way more popular. Look at the hype around Target collaborations domestically, the prominence/prevalence of H&M / Topshop / Zara GLOBALLY, the popularity of project runway and all of that stuff

Yea, I can't agree with KingJulien's claim at all. Just look at how much more attention is devoted to menswear now then there was even ten years ago, or the very existence of #menswear. Hell, MFA is a good example - reddit, the site that started in the world capital in terms of PhDs per square km now houses one of the largest fashion communities on the internet.
