The show last night was so much fun. And if the dudes who asked me if my models were cats or ballerinas, I'd like to publicly state here that each collection I do tells a specific story. I'm not that shallow. The fall 2011 collection is about the death of youth.
The collection is actually 22 pieces, but I could only use 8 last night, and I thought it was actually really fun to try and get the same point across with less looks. I used much harder/darker make up, bandaged their hands with lace as if they were in some kind of delicate soft suicidal recovery. I think it came off really well.
It was so much fun to finally be a part of a collaborative event. I loved all the other designers and artists, and to have a runway show with Dethlab playing was just brilliant. It was so intense. Kelly Jean and Rebecca were the finale in black and white swan, and they did this insane stand off that was like swan lake meets mcqueen's spring/summer '05 It's All A Game Show. It was perfect. I almost cried.
