    I couldn't help but think that the real reason behind a lot of those people choosing McQueen as their favorite designer is his death (if you'd made the research before he died, please ignore my insinuations :innocent:).

    And it looks like almost everyone is on tfs. :lol:

    I find it interesting that they didn't mention fashion week as a famous fashion event ... but thought that a film awards show was so important. That certainly shows you how the film industry is perceived nowadays ... more about what they wear than their talent to produce films. Of course ... it's due to all the media coverage .... more than anything.

    Fashion Week ... which is the most important and exciting time in the fashion biz didn't even get a nod!! How warped is that!!??

    The bigger part of the research was made before McQueen's death :wink:

    In the last question fashion weeks weren't included,and it says in the world of celebs(not fashion by that),but a good thing to notice :wink:

    For me the most interesting and suprising is that 22% of interviewees claim that Jonas Brothers are the most fashionable :shock:

    How did you collect this data? Were participants given choices to select from in all, some, or none of the questions?
