This is such an awesome piece about how fashion plays a huge role in defining our culture and cultural norms. I wonder what my baby-kei collection says about me?
"People say, 'Oh well, you know, I don’t care about fashion.' They go to the Gap, they go to Old Navy, and they all dress alike, they wear these uniforms. The thing that I really harp on is that, that in and of itself is a choice, it’s a personal choice, because there are many people who don’t do that. In buying those uniforms, you’re saying something about yourself, and about how you feel about clothing and culture. There is no such thing as an unaffected fashion choice. Anti-fashion is fashion, because it’s a reaction to the current visual culture, a negation of it."
