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.
