1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If you think the belly ring is bad, you should look up his other work

    Horrifyingly interesting

    He is an incredibly gifted an imaginative designer.........could be an artist if he wanted to based in the range and scope of his experimentation with fabric, cut , performance etc.

    his presentations are usually one of the high notes of men's fashion week in Paris

    there is quite a polarizing view about his work but the one thing it always does is its guaranteed to bring out an extreme view in almost all those who come in contact with it.

    And yes he is Jewish, but more so a world traveler as he has lived in Australia, Israel, Iceland and several other places. He is also a nice family man too married with a family

    So, some management professors wrote a paper on the role "saving face" plays in purchasing decisions, and I couldn't help but make parallels between their study and Atelier's reliance on emails to process its orders. Granted, ordering pizza isn't exactly the same as ordering an Ann coat, but I do wonder how (or if) the store's sales were affected by the need to contact a living human in order to complete a transaction (or even to check a price).

    thanks for the info, zamb. im sure he is a brilliant fellow, and as a nice jewish boy, its no surprise he has a wife and family.

    all the same, his work is a bit stomach churning for me, at least the small amount i have seen so far.

    I consider him a friend, but to be honest i thought the forget me knot ring was a little too far.................but hey, i am in no position to tell him what he should or shouldn't make
    otherwise though, I really like the creative humor of his work and the level of intelligent thought that goes into his pieces, and I can tell you it is not fake at all...............he really is always an element of surprise.

    you should check out his website and web store, there is a lot there to see and it should give a better perspective of his work

    If I had the kind of money necessary, I'd totally buy the spidersilk tee. I've always wanted clothing made of spidersilk. I'm afraid if I ever get it, the illusion of it being like it is in video games/movies will be busted.

    But maybe not- I haven't felt it yet.
