coldpressedforaha: How much did the Belgian Fashion Design book cost you? What are your thoughts on the book?

I honestly do not recall. I bought it off Yahoo Auctions Japan via a proxy service, I think. The book has a lot of information and soundbites from the famous and also the lesser known Belgian designers/figures. However, the text layout leaves much to be desired. But I am absolutely nit-picking right there. Get the book if you come across one.

PS: I happen to have 2 copies of the Margiela Street Magazine (one set is in 2 volumes and another is a 2-in-1). I still haven’t decided what to do with that.

It is eleven at night and as you precede to the Tuileries from 				Place de la Concorde, you find a trinkle of light through the  				trees. As you close in, you see a model standing in an oval  				plastic container. The models are shivering in their flimsy 				 spring clothes from the evening chill. Dozens of “objet d’art” are 				 seen sparkling in the darkness. The clothing continues 				 Persoons’ “torn cloth sewn together” concepts but this 				 collection also showed ornate new items of gold and silver 				 layered as blouses and skirts.
Faces, shiny from the application of gels replaced conventional 				 makeup.
