Virgil Abloh!

Virgil, Virgil, Virgil - November 28, 2021 we lost a giant and his name is Virgil Abloh. Virgil passed on at the mere 41 years of age. Virgil has impacted my life in so many ways that I can not select just one moment. When I ask myself, honestly how did he impact you? Virgil was creative head of LV and his own amazing brand Off-White and I had not yet materialized my plan to work with him. Then one thing comes to mind. I did seize an opportunity to hear him discuss the fusion of fashion, art, culture and sustainability on Clubhouse one night and I could not believe my ears. Who would have thought that in such a short time Clubhouse would bridge the divide between the everyday people and industry leaders. For this I am thankful! Virgil’s talent, conceptual skills, ability to birth a vision, cross branding, cross industry vertical integration and humility surpasses any other accomplished designer of this era. Merci Virgil for being you. You will live on in many of us as we look to your b

Ralph Lauren Too Thin Model Controversy!!

For more than a few seasons, the topic of models being too thin has been highly publicized from New York to Paris. The industry is pretty split down the middle on whether they agree or disagree with the fact that the images being portrayed on the runways and in advertising is fairly unrealistic.

I myself wouldn't mind seeing Size 4 to Size 6 models (a little more), because I think that is a pretty healthy average (depending on your height), but I would say health should be the deciding factor, not whether or not I can see your clavicle. As for designers, they will need a standard to work from for samples and such, and I think that their size template should not be regulated. WHY, limit creativity?

In recent years an ongoing debate has brewed over advertisers and fashion magazines using photographs, particularly photographs of women, that have seemingly been altered, or "retouched," by airbrushing and photo editing software such as Photoshop. The latest such image to cause an uproar is one featured in a new Ralph Lauren advertisement that shows a model, Filippa Hamilton, so emaciated that her waist actually appears to be smaller than her head.
