i don't necessarily think every designer should be following the way of hussein chalayan or making pants with three legs, haha. but i am just so sick of the conservatism that i feel has plagued fashion lately. it seems that everyone now is either trying too hard or not enough. where is the art and originality of each designer? everyone seems to succumb to the trends and while i know it is strategic for business, it makes each designer lose their individuality when every collection in a season is so similiar. remember when everyone was doing their own thing, i mean you KNEW immediately the mark of a designer.
