Long time lurker, first time poster weighing in

This week Diane is here in Seoul at Seoul Fashion Week, S/S 09. I knew she was coming and took the time to familiarize myself with her work. Plus, I'd seen a glimpse of her in a recent NYTime photo essay on the street fashion seen at Paris' prêt-à-porter shows: http://www.nytimes.com/packages/html....html#section1

It's been cool to meet her and reading about what she's done makes me admire her. Of course, her look is going to put some people off but I think of it this way she's got a reason for it. You don't go through the ritual of that look on a daily basis and not have a reason for it. She's led an interesting life and part of that is reflected in how she presents herself to the world. Also, it's contradictory to have a look that doesn't change but to be involved in an industry where looks change every season. That, to me, is interesting.

I don't think it's fair to dismiss her as a fashion critic either. It seems she simply doesn't talk about what she doesn't like and puts her attention into being gung-ho and positive to support those that she does like. Plus, it's great that she's putting her energy into promoting talented unknowns. I think too many of us are used to the snippy critics who humiliate and demean. I don't think that's necessary and it's nice to read a blog that stays away from that sort of tone.

Welcome to the Fashion Spot, rkwatlon! And thank you for sharing your views and her contributions.. We haven't heard much about her in a while ... so it's nice to see that she's still out and about .... and still attracting photographers.

** It's All in the Details! **

^^ I got stuck in a lift with her at London Fashion Week! Bizarre voice, but is a commendable character in her advocacy of emerging designers.
