Regarding recent comments in the Isabel Marant and Balmain threads (the conversation mainly concerns Emmanuelle Alt, to be frank), I wanted to open this thread where we could discuss about this new situation in fashion world ... I don't know why, but in a way it reminds me what happened (and was still in conversation in the early 00s) in the art world when curators (austellungmacher/ exhibition maker etc.) became more important than the artists and artworks they exhibited in the 1980s, 1990s etc. The whole exhibition concept, status etc. was at this same period (and due to this situation mostly) rethought ... So what do you think about this recent focus and media attention fashion editors faced (especially because of the 'streetstyle' blogs) and how does this new power they have in hands affect their work ?! We should certainly post pictures (i would love to do that but i'm not that patient and hard-worker!) comparing for instance E. Alt's own style and the attitude and style she tries to impose on the catwalks .... Look at the silhouettes she made for Marant and compare them to her ow style, you'll see it screams Altism .... - comments from Isabel Marant FW09.10 thread wheneveriwakeup : laika : This thread is to deal with the new status of Fashion Editors as Stylish Icons themselves, the influence on their work etc. examples : Emmanuelle Alt, Leith Clark, Kate Lanphear etc.
