Vika Gazinskaya's thoughts on industry
reanimato
"Раньше дизайнеры в больших брендах были у руля по 15 лет и с ними расставались как-то культурно. А сейчас пошла мода вышвыривать людей. не принес миллиарды за один сезон - до свидания! Мне кажется, времена поменялись, и лучше быть независимым. либо искать правильного партнера, который понимает тебя и не стоит над душей: "Где миллион?!". Слова "миллионный прибыли" и "независимый бренд" в одном предложении звучат нереалистично - но думать о продажах приходится, и постоянно. Стоприцентной свободы нет ни у кого. Я тоже думаю, как мои вещи будут продаваться. Иначе не смогу отшить следующую коллекцию. И это не плохо. Красива одежда, которую никто не носит, не имеет никакоо смысла".

Vika Gazinskaya's method
reanimato
"Вот платья, они навеяны простой белой блузой, которую  заметила у главного героя фильма питера Гринуэя в "Контракте рисоваьщика". В таких ходили мужчины в 18 веке - спали, ели, использовали их как нижнее белье...Вначале мы отшили блузу в очень тонком материале, в точности как в фильме. Потом я стала делать ее в различных цветах и фактурах хлопка. Потом этот крой получил модификации в деталях и объемах и перерос в несколько относительно разнах платьев. Так, на основе одного первого лекала может вырасти треть коллекции."

"I was walking on Bali and i saw a bunch of people on a clearing having a ball. Because somebody they really liked had just died. And i realised that everything is just how you decide to think about it. Sometimes people let the same problems make them miserable for years, when they should just say "So what?". That's one of my favourite things to say: "So what?". I don't know how i made it through all the years before i learned to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it. But once you do, you never forget".

"Dying is the most embarassing thing that can ever happen to you. Because someone has to take care about all your details. You've died and someone has to take care of your body, make the funeral arrangements, pick up the casket, and the service, and the cementery, and the clothes for you to wear, and do the makeup. You'd like to help them and most of all you'd like to do the whole thing yourself. But you're dead, so you can't. Here you've spent the whole life trying to make money to take care of yourself so you won't bother anybody else with your problems. And then you wind up dumping the biggest problem ever in somebody else's life. It's a shame. I never understood that when you died you didn't just vanish and everything could just keep going the way it was, only you just won't be there".           Andy Warhol

Fashion Vocabulary: Chevron Pattern
reanimato
A Chevron (дослівно: крокви ) print consists of inverted “v” shapes in what looks like a zigzag pattern. The Chevron actually dates all the way back to 1800 BC in ancient Greece where it was seen in many forms of ancient art, such as pottery and stone carvings. The word chevron dates back to the 14th century when the popular pattern received an official name. The origin is French (and Latin) and it is derived from the resemblance of the pattern to building rafters. The Chevron figure has also been used for decades in the form of insignias in the military to show rank, particularly in the English Arms, is usually associated with the emblems and symbols used in military or police uniforms.

Fashion Vocabulary: Tailcoat
reanimato
A tailcoat is a coat with the front of the skirt cut away, so as to leave only the rear section of the skirt, known as the tails. The historical reason coats were cut this way was to make it easier for the wearer to ride a horse, but over the years tailcoats of varying types have evolved into forms of formal dress for both day and evening wear. Although there are several different types of tailcoat, the term tailcoat is popularly taken to be synonymous with the type of dress coat still worn today in the evening with white tie. This dress coat, one of the two main surviving tailcoats, is a dark evening coat with a squarely cut away front. The other one is the morning coat (or cutaway in American English), which is cut away at the front in a gradual taper.
