"A dress touched the heart of the people. It's like an opera. You do not understand the language. Nevertheless, you feel moved,"
This is Guo Pei, the so-called doyenne of Chinese haute couture.
‘‘I always have a desire to create something that is fashion and is not fashion,’’ Guo Pei admitted and then laughed. ‘‘So a dress ends up weighing 50 kilos! Every piece is not fashion anymore. It’s sculpture; it’s painting. I want to put all that into a dress.’’ from 'Year of the Couturière'.
So what if these dresses are not at all wearable? Maybe they are not supposed to be worn, but admired, just like a form of art.

High Fashion Protection--by Diddo :
We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In the present context, this fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption.Deep down, we are afraid we may never be satisfied. An expanding archive of branded myths and icons feeds this fear. Designer Gas Masks is an attempt to visualize this state of mind. Because it is only by first acknowledging and then challenging fear that we will all be able to breathe a little easier.

Zombies are back in fashion thanks to a canadian model's full body skeletal tattoes. You have surely noticed the Zombie Boy (a.k.a Rick Genest) in Lady Gaga's latest video, he is also the new face for Mugler's men collection.
