yes...and she continues to influence others...
she doesn't get it right every time...
but you have to keep pushing forward to innovate...
she does have a certain 'vocabulary' that she seems to use regularly....
tartan is def part of that vocab...

travolta...
can you make copies of said footage or what?!?!...
i am DYING to see this stuff...
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE......

I was wondering, does draping use more or less fabric than patterns?

This collection is VERY Vivienne Westwood-ish, gotta agree with you. Though it isn't anything very creative,I think it's very 90's.
Not my favourite...Not awful either.

draping does not always use more fabric, you could drap a t-shirt if you wanted too. Patterns just simplify and are used to make construction much easier. When you drap you have to concentrate on each piece more.

what made japanese fashion so innovative for the most part was that the designers were not tied down to specific guidelines...in making a coat, traditionally in european fashion you would drap starting at the shoulder. However, the japanese, taught without european traditions were able to drap starting anywhere on the body...hence their innovations...sorry of topic but it flowed.

Saw this in person yesterday - absolutely fantastic when distilled. Thankfully, that particular store did not buy any of that UK referencing stuff, so this was pure Rei genius - very intricately constructed garments in gorgeous fabrics.

It was a jacket that looked something like this (the back was really cool - it was all chopped up, bubbled and put together in this skewed way - absolutely gorgeous).
