I was watching Madonna's documentary "LEt me Tell You A Secret", a behind the scenes look at her Reinvention Tour, and there was a scene there where she tackled divisiveness among society by letting her dancers/actors/performance artists symbolically take off their 'uniforms', uniforms which represented cultural division. The act of taking the clothes removed all associations with the symbols/culture/religion they represented and it allowed the performers to be unified as a whole, as one human race. That is so cool. A world that is ruled by peace, and love. That is the future I wish to be in.

About the look:
Aside from the metallic accents and hints of futurism in my look (inspired by
Metropolis, a 1927 German expressionist film in the science-fiction genre directed by Fritz Lang) I wanted to do a look that blurs distinctions. Is it modern or futuristic? is it masculine or feminine? Is it fashion or art? My goal is neither of those opposites but an amalgation of everything. One whole. a unified look.

Wonderful, Andre! The symmetry of the overall outfit is very beautiful - it accentuates the harmony that exists between the genres you've juxtaposed. Reading your brief, I'd say you were very successful in creating unity - stunning!

Great look as always! Apart from unification, I can feel some eminence and mystery, as if You were a priest of some mysterious religion :) Loe you! (Hahaha, I just realised that if You're a God of fashion you can have your own fashion religion :) ) Love!

May I be so bold as to say,please please please wear more skirts often. You carry them with such wonderful elegance and dignity. Reminds me of the stately folds and drapery in the hero's costume in the Tarsem Singh film,The Fall. And don't let me get started with the wonderful facial embellishments!!!!
Andre Judd
