I recently watched the documentary on Raf Simons' first collection at Dior and was blown away by how disposable his genius was. He would produce a spectacular fashion show, and at the end of it, the suits would be asking him when the next one would be ready. It's not hard imagine why he recently quit. The fashion audience consumes genius so rapidly that it inspired me to make paintings out of garments and accessories. Raf Simons' clothes should have been hung in a gallery and not have been brushed off so casually from season to season. The dress painting I posted here, entitled "Dry Clean Only", is an ode to the craftsmanship that goes into making beautiful clothes.
