CDG s/s 2012 “white drama” is one of those things i think of often. the fussiness and grandeur of an all white collection off-set by black spattered “out there” accessories like a pierrotesque balloon hat (my personal favorite) really resonate with me both as fashion and art inspo. anyway, this is my interpretation for my next painting but i may scrap it in favor of making a smaller collection of fashion related drawings instead

"We are very cruelly trapped between what we would like to be and what we actually are. And we cannot possibly become what we would like to be until we are willing to ask ourselves just why the lives we lead on this continent are mainly so empty, so tame, and so ugly."

- James Baldwin
