trouble with futurism

Cathy Horyn, fashion writer for the New York Times, started her own blog about a week ago. She did this really great post on Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, documenting an issue he had with this super futuristic polyester fabric. They made a digital flipbook of his sketches and the construction steps he took in creating a dress from the trouble fabric. It’s really interesting to see the problem solving involved. I also really love seeing his sketches and the process of developing an abstract idea. Hopefully sometime soon, I can get some similar information to share from our FP designers!

WOW I am in love with Cathy Horyn right now…to be able to peek into a “legitimate” journalists brain and have her say things like “I was thinking about my hat…” Genius.

Umm, the process reveals so much of the character doesn’t it – just like a blog.
