That old chestnut, or these old chestnuts, it’s a boring cliché never-the-less.
Designers wear black, designers wear kooky loud gear, designers wear lumber-jack gear, designers can look like bums, designers don’t wear logos, some designers do, the old designer guard tend to wear black. Some wear black because they want to be free of those what-to-wear dramas. The fat and plump designers (like Andrew) tend to wear black, because it makes them look slim. The money starved designer wears black because one would have no idea whether they owned one black outfit or one hundred black outfits. The groovy on-the-street designers wear whatever they want; like the cats in Vice magazine.
If you want to find out what a designer stands for, they are usually wearing it. And once you move beyond the designer and the clothing thing, have a look at what they produce — it generally speaks volumes.5 comments
