>> Azzedine Alaia Blames Lack of "Freshness" in Fashion on Designer Fatigue
—In the new issue of Flaunt, Azzedine Alaia speaks out against the current fashion system: “There’s a fatigue in fashion, I think. Designer fashion is different now. Designers cannot create so many collections — cruise and pre-fall, accessories — when normally two-a-year is more than sufficient. A designer simply cannot invent something new every two months or so. It takes six months of research and work to build a new silhouette. I work until very late every morning since I do many things by myself. Personally, I know it’s not possible. That’s the reason why fashion today does not change very much. There is no time to think, to invent something new. You can no longer be excited or surprised. Rarely is there any freshness.” [Fashionista]
