“In the beginning is the sketch. That’s our Word. That is what leads, what remains is the referent. Then, there is the pattern, which allows assessment, interruption, continuity. Then, the fabric, which marks an essential stage, the stage of boldness and risk. Finally, the model arrives, which takes its first tentative steps before joining the others, to form the collection.”
That excerpt is from the book pictured below. Yves Saint Laurent. I just borrowed it from the library. It’s one chunk of a book. It’s filled with images and commentary. Some kind of insight in the world of YSL, what he did, who he was, where he was and so on.
I keep reading more and more about fashion and it so exciting and interesting. So many beautiful creations. I’ve only got about two more weeks until I start my course. I can’t wait!
