I gotta be honest, that collection is really good especially compared to the disaster that was the last few Rick collections.

Four of my roommate's dresses (well technically 5 1/2 if you click the link) are in this month's Vogue and I'm really proud of her so I wanted to share satisfied.gif

Nice! Really beautiful. Is she a designer, do the patterns, both?
post #936 of 1125

It's sort of complicated but she does the designing (and occasionally handwork) of the beadwork and any detailing like that.  she isn't personally doing the pattern or draping on these but works hand in hand with who does so she can get the intricate stuff incorporated. It's sort of split between these 2 "teams"

 

Still, I don't think all Marchesa dresses will go through her personally though, since she'll refer to certain things as "my dress" and that she was glad all 4 of the dresses in the Vogue article were "hers" so that she can just use the whole thing in her portfolio.  Another one that was hers that impressed me was in the holiday windows at Bergdorf this year.  There is a funny picture on a popular style blog of her working on it, but I won't post that or the name of the blog out of privacy reasons.

 

When I look at all my failed DIY attempts I'm just amazed at what these girls put out.

Ah, gotcha. Makes sense they'd split up the work like that on dress that's that intricate. Gives you a different appreciation for work like that when you know the person who did it and the crazy amount of labor that went into it. Great dresses.

Why do people use subscriptions so much ? Is your time so valuable that you can't afford to spend a couple seconds looking through one page of thread titles ? Are the benefits worth the risk of missing on good contributions.

I mostly work from a text-only terminal and browsing the main page with w3m is very inconvenient - using subscriptions lets me just scrape the page and find out the title of the threads that have been updated, and then can decide whether or not to open up a web browser (0) It's mostly to avoid being overly distracted dealing with fora; once my focus drifts it's at least an hour's lost productivity.

I think I'm onboard with Sipang that Raf fw '13 is one of the best collections of the season.  Those stupid fabric strips come off and the shirting / knits look amazing.

I just found undercover's s/s 2004 collection where he made two versions of each look (one melted), so fucking cool...
