I love masks. In fact I wear them everyday. My eyewear is a mask. My clothing is a mask. There are things you keep to yourself and there are things you choose to reveal to people. This allusion of clothing as a mask gave me an idea when I came up with this look. Why not wear literally a mask to mask myself?

As I was working on this look I recalled Carine Roitfeld's fash ed BAL MASQUÉ for Paris Vogue (which was genius if I may add). I loved that ed because it featured strong visual imagery with an amazing styling and creative direction. Not for the faint of heart, I enjoyed it because it pushes ideas/visons forward. Maybe that is why I love avant garde fashion so much.

Oh my,I almost didn't recognize you for a minute. I love the way the framework caresses your face,the lines are almost cocoon like,the feathers like thorns. But all in all with the jodphurs almost like an otherworldy fencer.
Andre Judd
thank you!!!!!!!!!!:)love otherwordly things:)!!!!!!
Exur Lopena
I can't understand why people like you with this dynamic spectacularity aren't awn top of the hype. You are an admirable definition of an avant gardien, creating fashion-mind-blowing chicness like Lady Gaga blowing music & fashion hits. Thanks for inspiring!
Andre Judd
i am humbled and flattered by your comment :) Is Exur your real name. love how it sounds:) nice meeting you:) thank you very much for liking this look:) i had reservations at the start if i should post this look. there are times when i just wanna go crazy and expressmyself in a new way. you inspire me to do just that:)
Exur Lopena
yes i get that a lot but yeah, Exur is really my name, actually a short cut from my dad's. Thank you very much! Ehmagawd, you have no idea how ah-mazing it is to hear from you (you're TRULY stylish and nice! the best feat) because i am thee biggest fan w/ all your work. Serious-leh, from the F&H amazement to thee editorials you help for Preview (the one with the Paradox Equation was devastatingly chic). I'm from Cebu actually, and I saw you at the Preview party, and I was sooo shy and in awe to even just say hi! You had the blond coiffed hair wearing black puffed shoulders, I believe. I'm glad you decided to post this and all the other outrageous fashion marvels you do. It's really what fashion is about: invigorating the mind and sense to a higher level of creativity & brilliance. So so sorry this is long, just admire you so much! Continue in flowing endlessly brave fashion expressionism! I'll always be excited for it! Again, sorry for the stalker vibes. Good day!
