Rick Owens Spring 2014: A statement or a joke...
Rick Owens is usual for previewing distressed leather and goth looks on the runway, but his recent show is completely off from the previous ones. I am a firm believer in creative integrity and expression, but this is just a JOKE. How can his models present himself in that way? I'm not making remarks about their weight or the color of their skin, but damn what's with all of the ugly faces? This is just plain gross. I HATE THIS. I can't even pay attention the clothing because the models make me angry.
What a shame to the plus size community....SHAME ON YOU, RICK OWENS!
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
