Flow it, Show It, Long as God Can Grow It


In the midst of all the craziness going on right now while we wrap up designing our jewelry line, Christina reminded me that we have to start thinking about outfits for Fashion Week, which is right around the corner. We're getting our party lineup into order, and of course will need appropriate clothes to match. Thus unfolds nights of trolling through Style.com for inspiration pictures, which will eventually be transmogrified into our own Six Six Sick-ed DIY numbers, with varying degrees of similarity to the original source of inspiration. Last Fashion Week, we made an elastic cage dress with hair attached at the shoulders for Susie Bubble, and this season I'm still obsessed with the use of hair, even if those of you who found it completely creepy the first time will probably still find it off-putting.

I found this editorial, shot by Sune Czajkowski and styled by Simon Rasmussen for Tush Magazine particularly inspiring. I love the hairy monster-fur coat, which looks like the unkempt cousin of Margiela's Spring 09 wig jacket. The horse-mane styled headpiece would add instant drama to any outfit. Even the black tulle begins to look like an oversized demented fabric updo. I'm hoping that we can translate these looks into something of our own, maybe even calling in our hairstylist friends in for reinforcement...

Just found your blog and I think the concept is awesome! Like everyone else, can't wait for the hair theme. Love how the world is finally picking up on what Margiela and Camilla Skovgaard did seasons ago. I'm pretty new to the whole blogging thing so stop by when you have a chance and let me what you think!
