i actually styled the poster for that michael moore film...it felt good...that made me feel like i was part of the political process even if I was just getting clothes and props(remember when i bought the surfboard?)...at least it was for a project that i believed in...makes my job seem less frivolous somehow...
wow!!! softgray, i'm sooo proud of you!!! hehe, i luv michael, he's great...it's hard for ppl to take critism sometimes but i think he still persists no matter what the backlash and despite what ppl say, he's very patriotic to america.

and DITTO!!! helena...i can't believe your country is not releasing it!!! Michael Moore is amazing, and being a fan of his films i totally am on ur wavelength...America is starting to make other democracies look very bad...
Just for the record, I am not american, i am British. I hope that the film is released this autumn in the Uk.

There is a lot of stuff on this thread that I am really not following as a non-american. [/b][/quote]
haha, ohhh, sorry, i'm aussie so i sorta feel angry at what america is doing because we're in an alliance with them for political reasons...it should be release in Australia too, but it's a bit useless, i feel, if it doesn't get released in america.

As an originator of this topic, do I have the right to ask a moderator to lock this topic? No offence to anyone, but I did not expect this to escalate into another meaningless political debate. Thank you.
your wish will be granted if this topic keep getting off-topic

keep your posts on "fashion get's political" and avoid getting sidetracked in pre-election debates, merci beaucoup

I loved those D&G outfits Amelie, thanks so much for posting them. Apart from the whole political message, they're also really cheerful! The colours are just wonderful and even the mini skirts are cute. Hopefully they'll come out with some similarly good stuff in the coming collection.

Also, I remember that Arkadius' collection (with the bloody doves) carried a political message as well. Hopefully I can find my old topic on those dresses.
Got it! http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums/index...topic=6855&st=0

hmm you are not alone Amelie, i'm also extremely politically orientated but i keep it safely locked in the closet while posting at FS keep researching in political messages in fashion

funny that Chalayan's latest ss04 collection is actually recognised as political, its true of course , even if i didnt really get a clear political message when i saw his 'fighters in Cyprus' clothes.
For fw04.05 he's getting a bit exaggerating with his policeman-in-the-city prints

ps: thanks all for the wonderful fashion items posted

prince...helena works in a law firm...i think she knows what she's talking about...and having a degree really proves nothing...i'm sorry...but it's true... ...just another harsh reality to face... ...nothing is as it seems...
thanks softgrey - thats the point i was trying to make. qualifiactions do not necessarily make a person clever or more informed about the world nor do they make someone an arbiter of what is 'right' - those things come partly as least from the soul and most importantly the strength of ones moral fibre & convictions.

thx amelie... ...i'm really glad i had the opportunity to contribute...even if it's in a tiny way...and i love love love the hussein chalayan pieces you posted...i could use one of those inflatable outfits in case i have to escape from NY... ...hahaha...it's an island you know... ...

i miss moschinos's political statements...and kenneth cole is always right there...you should have seen his first show after 9/11...he played a slideshow beforehand with words flashing across the screen and images...and just great music....

THINK............................................. ....................picture of the twin towers standing proudly....


very powerful stuff....interesting to watch these hardened fashionistas trying to keep it together at that point...can't fall apart in the front row now...(sarcasm)...i really respect kenneth cole's advertising....
