Dutch designer Romy Smits is a design consultant, but also designs clothes not seasonally, but as the moment strikes. I can totally understand that. Sometimes I wonder how designers can churn out stuff every season, I mean, don’t they get a creative block sometimes? I sure do. I guess that’s when fashion -intern minions come in handy. Anyway, I really liked Romy’s attention to texture. It’s like a damn 3D movie. Pretty cool- might as well go all the way with this 3D thing, right? Anywho, delusional pregnant ladies aside, I’m really digging the purple alien in the first picture- kinda looks like The Littlest Pet Shop.

Dutch photographer/artist , Hendrik Kerstens, latest work involves plastic bags, toilet paper rolls and toilet paper. Sounds like my son’s items of choice for an afternoon of crafting or his diaper disposal. Anyway, the above are a few of this bizarre art that is display at some unlucky art gallery. That chick looks like she’s ready to quit this b*tch! The last photo reminds of Dieter for some odd reason- it could be the black turtle neck speaking to me. Visit Hendrik’s site to see where you can view this mess.

John Galliano never ceases to amaze me. So many wonderful creations from a man that could be mistaken for your neighborhood eccentric on a bike decorated with junk. But see, that is what makes Galliano’s designs  so cutting edge and fresh, everything he touches has a flair of punk and irony. That is why he is one of my most favorite designers of all time. He has the balls to take a classic French house like Dior and turn it upside down and gives us this. This is what fashion is about – recession or not. It’s about escaping and dreaming of this world of full ball gown skirts, meticulous embroidery and color fit for any storybook tale. Galliano was inspired by Flemish ( Belgium) and Dutch (The Netherlands) arts this season, most apparent in the embroidery and patterns at the bottom of the skirts. Voluminous sleeves and skirts dominated the collection, bringing evoking thoughts of a fairy tale princess. Bravo, Monsieur Galliano!
