Zzz... Huh? Wha?

weather: partly cloudy
outside: 15°C
mood: ...
My head tips off one side of my palm where it was resting, precariously balanced with my elbow on the table. And I suddenly jerk awake with the feeling of falling.


I done been nudged.

/smile @ oldron... =) I have absolutely nothing interesting to tell anyone. Oh wait, maybe...

I had a pretty interesting realization a little while ago. I suppose I might share it:

The fashion industry is not about designing clothes for people to wear.

It's about an artist, using fabric, non-fabric, and notions to create art. The medium is something resembling a human body - a walking coat hanger, if you will.

Most of the time, it's not an average human body. Many times, the bodies are actually a bit unnatural or deformed.

It's an artist being creative with their chosen medium. It is NOT about clothes for people. There's really no sense attaching any measurement of "attractiveness" to it.

And all of a sudden, everything makes perfect sense to me. I don't get art. And that's perfectly okay.

the uber haute couture is all "sculptural fashion" and what you'll get in stores is the watered down stuff for wear. ( not a bad thing.)

once i started looking at it in that sense as much as any other sculpture or art, it was more appreciable.

But then I have ideas for jewelery to do in my 2 yr program that fall on the wild end of sculptural, as well as wearable offshoots.
