Mattie and I recently made clothes for a photo shoot with our pal/visionary/fellow weird girl Lauren Poor. Lauren explains it better here but basically the idea was about covering the models bodies...taking the idea of ornamentation (something found in religious practices thus the saint part) to an excessive level so that the actual person is obliterated. It was really a dream to work with Lauren not only because her work is UBER good but she shares similar questions about what the hell this whole "fashion" thing is and how to use it for non-sucky purposes. It's also refreshing to meet creative people that really think critically about everything they do -- not just sending stuff into the world for no reason at all. Most importantly it was just awesome to make things with my hands. Since I haven't been taking art classes my urgent need to create kind of disappeared. This project reminded me of what a treat that it is.
