click click – 20-09-13
Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
- ILLUSTRATION ART – an intelligent blog appreciating the finer points of art and illustration. I especially enjoyed this close examination of R.O. Blechman’s work, and this cogent questioning of who the real victims and charlatans in art fraud are.
- The Editor’s Eye – a truly eye-opening documentary about Vogue’s veteran fashion editors. Everything in service of the image!
- Fashion’s Most Angry Fella – the man who spent a lifetime casting and creating a fashion industry fight club for the purpose of selling more papers still loves talking about it.
- Fashion Week History – excellent series of posts about the legacy of New York Fashion Week provide a reminder for short memories that fashion week has been oversized, commercial, and celebrity-obsessed since it began in 1943. Don’t get it twisted: fashion week, at least in New York, was never a stately affair.
- How to be an it girl – Rachel Hills revisits a favourite subject with some fresh insights – “An “It” girl cannot think too much about the nature of her position, or she risks losing the quality that got her there in the first place.”
- overcoming the hatred of the american teenage girl – artist Ann Hirsch articulates so well why Bebe Zeva is worth defending.
- Not as Easy As It Looks – the New Yorker podcast explores why so many women bother with the phoniness of trying to look like they’re not trying. Via Tara.
If you wanna, karma
- Woven Ghost – “Make clothes. Watch TV. Repeat.”
- Oranges and Apples – “musings on fashion, society and parenthood”
- DISASTER IN A DRESS – “International Fashion Brander, Mandorette, Sewer…dreaming of a life in fashion!”
- Unravelling my “schtick” – “Writer, adventurer, incessant chatter. I like stories and strategies.”
