Artistic Edge is my Weakness

I am naturally drawn to designs with artistic edginess. It's like a drug for me. I just have a strong love for designers that fall into this category including John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, and Rick Owens ... It could be from my upbringing. My father had formal music training and would bring home (and often feed) young artists, dancers, musicians, etc. I'm an artistic appreciator/wannabe ... I love creativity, but am very aware of my limitations.

This is probably why I had such a guttural, knee-jerk reaction to Jean-Pierre Braganza's collection. Fierce and fearless are the adjectives that came to mind when I saw it.

I also just had to feature the video highlights of the esteemed Central Saint Martins' Show.  I love getting a peek at the work of very possibly, at least one of the next, hot, trailblazing designer.
