I got asked by a stylist to make this hat for Marc Jacobs yesterday..


I declined. Its so fug I had to share. This is what the GLAMOUROUS world of high fashion was like. Stylists begging you to work for them for barely any money to make uninventive ALWAYS SOME OLD DESIGN THAT THEYRE SECRETLY RIPPING OFF version of ugly shit for people you dont care about. It was never fun to make stuff when they just gave you some vintage photo and asked you to remake it because it wasnt even imaginative, but american fashion ISNT IMAGINATIVE which is why its lame and not cool and why I realized after a year a two that I dont even care about fashion, and I just appreciate good styling...fashion is lame and boring and why should I even care about WOMENS CLOTHES?! ...gross.. That shit brainwashes the baby gays... Fashion is queer an unfierce, dont be fooled, its unimportant and you can look JUST AS FIERCE wearing a PINEAPPLE ON YOUR HEAD as you can in some fancy label get up. If it needs the label to have worth it wasnt worth even looking at to begin with.... Thats why I stick to spandex, its much more satisfying to the soul. Thats why I only make hats for friends nowadays who want something cute for a party. Like ONGINA for example, who after I let her wear the crocodile eating bird hat someone went and made a t-shirt of it, and she was kind enough to give me a copy which is more then I can say Vogue ever did....broke ass, opposite of interesting, grocery store magazine. I accidentally left the t-shirt in the rental car and had to call to get it back, describing the image was pretty fun. they lady found it and was like " Its an image of an alligator biting.... a ...womans....hair?!???"

Compared to some of the FIERCE work you have displayed in the blog that hat is like an INSULT to your talent. Shame on them!

Stick with spandex, day-by-day your sales are making the world a better and sexier place to live : )

It's so "cliche" to be gay and to worrry about woman's clothes! I have always thought it would be boring to work in fashion world.

Your Croc hat and image reminded me of the TERROR of my first sightng of fur-- My mother inherited a fur piece circa 1950 where the mink stole piece wrapped around her neck and the clasp was that the heads of the the two minks biting each other held it on - I was revolted
