This post is dedicated to The Vogueite.
As if it’s not funny enough for us to be introduced via chatroom, his cybername was VOGUE and mine was PRORSUM. We were still in high school, probably still wearing Nike high-cuts, doing push-ups before recess and swear by reading STYLE: magazine daily during silent reading session. Both of us were into fashion but we didn’t’ know much back then. Fashion was like an escape from manhood.
Anyway, I met up with him the other day with the reliable photographer, Ridhwan (thank you so much!) for some impromptu shoot. Despite the weather being unpredictably f-up, the shoot went pretty well and the result was awesome despite not having much equipment and natural lighting. The concept was very literal and direct, to emphasize on the shoulder piece he designed, made up of pre-loved jeans. The garment was awesome, very conceptual.
(I would gladly wear your design for the Gareth Pugh show next month)
To see the processed pictures, click on his blog, I’ll be posting it up very soon.
