>> In a week of constant back and forth bickerings of 'He said xxx, he did xxx...', creative director merry-go-round movements and corporate subtefuge allegations, I've grown a bit weary. I also had people emailing me about the John Galliano situation asking for 'comment' to which I've said 'no comment, only because it seems ludicrous to comment on something I personally know nothing about, stirring the pot when it's been stirred enough by people thinking they can add hasty input when the situation is not yet 100% clear.
I've also been made to feel like I have to quell melancholy over the whole situation because I'm supposed to automatically condemn and assume. Did I shed a tear over the fact that the John Galliano collection shown in an intimate presentation may be his last if the label will shutter? Yes and if that condemns me in the process, then so be it.
It only remains to be said that this mint green kimono robe from the (last?) John Galliano presentation with lace embroidery touched upon and encapsulated the magic that makes it all to easy for me to make the distinction between talent and personal action and not muddle the two.
Damn...what was that about my 'No Comment' stance?
