McQueen. In his own words.

"I’m 40 now, but I want this to be a company that lives way beyond me, and I believe that customers are more important to making that happen than press. When I’m dead, hopefully this house will still be going. On a spaceship. Hopping up and down above the earth.”

Viktor & Rolf = The Incredibles!

I have been obsessed with Viktor & Rolf since I saw a retrospective of their work at the Museé de la Mode et du Textile in Paris in 2003. Their latest collection is a real testament to their creativity and sheer brilliance.

Reminiscent of their Fall 2009 Couture show entitled "Russian Doll", Viktor Horsting & Rolf Snoeren joined a lone model (Kristen McMenamy) wearing 10 layers of clothing on a rotating platform in the centre of the catwalk. They then removed each layer one by one, in turn re-dressing each model who entered the catwalk with each individual layer creating an entire show. It completely blew me away and the stills do the spectacle no justice at all. Please when you next have a spare 18 minutes and 49 seconds, watch the full video of the show below, you will not be disappointed. Amazing amazing amazing!

James Lovelock - Is it too late?

My first next-door neighbor was an old man from Cape Clear Island . He was a fisherman and I think he used to whale watch too. His drink of choice was whiskey and milk - that i don't remember, but I was informed of recently and it left me quite intrigued. He left his collection of National Geographic magazines to us when he died. He also gave us 4 whales' teeth.
This is my earliest memory of being aware of the environment. I became interested in whales and dolphins, then all animals and saving them from extinction. I cleaned up a local pond/ river/ sewer with my friends and I didn’t talk to my Dad for ages because he was furious with me for shouting at and chasing poachers from our field. I also tried to join Greenpeace when I as about 9 years old - not sure how successful I was though. Anyway, the point of my rambling is the environment.

Queue James Lovelock. Another old man who has inspired me.

I found an interview with him (see pic - you probably can't read it - just serves as a reminder) yesterday and it reminded me that I should be more careful. It's amazing how quickly we (I) forget.
Also here is another good article on him that you can read, although reading this link from the Guardian is a little depressing, so be warned. I thought that by doing my little bit of recycling ( like all the extra pictures I printed from the recent shows ) would help (no bigger tree killer than myself when it comes to AW10 ). However, Mr. Lovelock thinks otherwise. Please read to get another persepctive of what we should have done - Is it too late?

In 1965 executives at Shell wanted to know what the world would look like in the year 2000. They consulted a range of experts, who speculated about fusion-powered hovercrafts and "all sorts of fanciful technological stuff". When the oil company asked the scientist James Lovelock, he predicted that the main problem in 2000 would be the environment. "It will be worsening then to such an extent that it will seriously affect their business," he said.
"And of course," Lovelock says, with a smile 43 years later, "that's almost exactly what's happened."
