Thread: Introduce Yourself

  1. #21

    Default Re: Introduce Yourself



    Lets try this.



    I live in New York. I work within the visual arts arena.



    I was encouraged by a friend to join and start posting. So I did. I have a renewed study of movement that completely captivates me at the moment and that drew me in more to the site. I am interested in how clothing affects the body and how we are drawn to it. I am interested in how the clothing and the runway can act as performance. I am interested in seeing how people feel in their skin and what is on it, while exploring how I feel in my own skin and what I put on it. I have followed fashion from a very distant point of view, so not terribly versed in things. I am drawn to Ann Demeulemeester right now, like some of what I have seen from Limi Feu. Learning quickly by the minute.



    I absolutely love tomatoes, feel the most comfortable in the color black, although my favorite is red, and love to laugh, apparently uncontrollably these days.





    Distraction is an obstruction of the construction.

    Hello all =)



    I'm Kristina, I'm 20 and from NYC, but I currently go to school out on Long Island. Right now I'm more of a high fashion lover and admirer, than customer, due to my unfortunate college student status. My weaknesses are well made handbags and shoes, and I'm a beauty product junkie. My favorite designers include: Nicolas Ghesquière, Alber Elbaz, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giambattista Valli, Alexander McQueen, and Aurelio Costarella. I love a little color in my wardrobe, but nothing makes me happier than wearing shades of grey, black and navy blue (not necessarily together).

    My name's Matthew as the screen name says, i go by the screen name Fade to Black on other places...24 years old, Hong Kong, i like the work of a few designers such as Hedi Slimane, Takahiro Miyashita, but my #1 will always be Yohji Yamamoto. The reason I like clothing so much, apart from the aesthetic appreciation, is because in my head I've always considered myself an artist but can't really do any form of art worth a damn, so i guess dressing gives me an avenue to express my vision and interpret my inspirations, which come from everywhere. I'm pretty much feeling inspired 24/7, i always have these crazy ideas and visions and images and moods running through my mind but can't seem to find any way to let it out so I let my presentation do it...

    Hi!



    I am mostly lurking about here but I really appreciate this board.



    While I went to school in a creative field i was always lost in a sort of sartorial quagmire... going to school in a Pittsburgh didnt help heh.



    I must say that I gained a lot of inspiration from the community here.



    The start of my demise was when i fell for Ann's aesthetic after seeing some stuff here and wandering into her shop.



    I graduated undergrad last year and i work in Tokyo as an architect, getting paid dick for working a billion hours a week.



    So very marvelous.



    I'm more than glad to help out people who want stuff from Tokyo or online in Japan, be it info or proxy or whatever.. so let me know if you need anything.

    Man, I thought I did this the other night...




    I'm a freelance designer in NY. I have a long design background, mostly in mass market but I had the oportunity a while back to get my feet wet in RTW. It just confirmed I love it and hate the mass market crapI do always. I also design custom suits for private clients and consult for other designers that want to start their own custom businesses.




    I know a few people here from TFS and I followed Faust here when he abruptly left TFS. I always liked his respect of quality and integrity of design. Cool cat..




    I love this site cause it's a place that really reinforces my own ideas about design. And it focuses on designers and artiststhat do not follow the status quo.

    I'm from Guadalajara, Mexico, architect, with a master degree in architectural design.I own a small firm of architectural/design projects and teach in two universities, in one architectural design and in the other cinema history. Before starting my firm i worked as a principal in the Institute of Digital Visual Arts (been the youngest principal in that institute history).




    Always feel very attracted to design in general, but clothes and tailoring have a very special place. Started looking for info on the web, found tfs, know Mr. Faust, bought some clothes from him, share some info and the rest is history. Sometimes my contributions in this forum are most like a silent expectator (the fashion industry in Mexico is boring, all my friends dress older than their age, and think they're fashionable with their ferragamo/gucci loafers and hermes belts).

    I'm 22, Texas resident my whole life (Houston, then College Station). Next year I'll be moving to San Antonio to go to medical school where our very own Chinorlz is attending. Got into fashion after desperately trying to imitate what Cedric and Omar were wearing from At the Drive In. I neeeeded those jeans. I play in a local indie rock band, and dabble in electronic pop music in my spare time. My two guitars being a Rickenbacker 360 mapleglo and a Rick 650D.



    I dress halfway between high fashion and streetwear. I love Dior Homme, but my closet these days range from Julius, Rick Owens, viridi-anne, to visvim and supreme. I just pick up pieces here and there.

    haven't posted much yet... but i always check the forums.



    Live in Sydney, Aus. Study architecture and work as a shoemaker's assistant. I fell in love with Raf Simons and Chalayan through some loose Architecture links. Came to this forum after googleing ccp wanting to know more about a shirt I picked up on sale from a local shop which was closing down. At the moment I am into a New Zealand label called Nom*D, Rick, Raf, Ann and CCP.

    welcome, Asho - great to see another sydneysider here.




    Would that local shop happen to be Belinda Menswear? They had a decent amount of old CCP pieces (of which I picked up a few) before they closed. It's quite a shame they are gone now.








    I'll play too. Name's Brian, 24, Sydney. In the finance industry. Avid martial artist. I enjoy any kind of creative work that creates, generates, or fuels emotion in myself or other people. My favourite designer would be Yohji Yamamoto. I followed Faust from tFS along with a number of others.

    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    you guys make me realize how much I miss Australia...



    Here is my story.. well.. grew up in Australia.. and then was in USA for about 7 years.. floating everywhere in USA. Which I really enjoyed it tremendously. Now I work in Asia and travel between China, HK and Taiwan... have been for the past two years... and now it is time for me to make another massive move... still deciding... USA, Australia or may be somewhere in Europe? Any suggestions?[86]



    I actually followed a bunch of people here from TFS... and of course.... I have been looking at my closet lately and it looks quite boring... Dior Homme, Rick Owens, CCP, Ann, Julius, Carpe Diem, MA+... Raf Simons, Jil Sanders, man.... that makes me a label whore huh? [86]

    ...23 years old and born and raised in The Netherlands in a suburban area of Amsterdam. Been living in Finland and Brussels for about one year each, and now back in the home country for the time being.




    In Finland I was living with my girlfriend to study the language and experience how it is to live in a different part of Europe. Brussels was a wonderful time where I waspart of the Retail Purchasing teamwithin aglobal apparel enterprise. Last week accepted an offer as Merchandiser within the Netherlands' largest department store chain...




    My interest in fashion started off about 5 years ago, when I was completely into (what I call now EuroTrash) brands like Dior Homme, Roberto Cavalli and Dolce&Gabbana. However, my interest switched during the last 2 - 2.5 years to more innovative, avant-garde brands with their own distinctive signatures, e.g. Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Raf Simons, etc.




    It's not only labels I am wearing though: love to mix-and-match with vintage garments and accessories I find wherever I go....

    Hey, my name is Jens and i'm from Helsinki, Finland. I'm 16 years old and really intrested in fashion. I've just gotten into drawing some pieces an such. I really don't have any CCP, carpe diem, etc. because I haven't got the money at this age. I'm really open for new ideas, new designers and new music so I guess this is the right place for me ;P

    I'm 31, from LA, now in NYC. I design consumer and professional audio electronics.



    I suppose I'm primarily interested in design which was the beginning of my latest obsession with fashion. I suppose I've always been into dressing myself well, however I've been focusing more on it in the past 5 years or so. In the past year I've become more interested in the designers and what they are saying with their work than the clothes for myself. I am greatly indebted to Faust and the SZ community for the wealth of info presented here. I hope to contribute more as I feel stronger in my knowledge and opinions.



    Currently I am a fan of any designer who I feel has a strong voice with their work. I generally evaluate what the designer set out to do and then how well they execute it (whether it be a women's line or men's). Designers that I am impressed with are Altieri, Simons, Demeulemeester, Owens, Slimane, Yamamoto, Kawakubo
