I'm a bit surprised no one has gave feedback asking or this yet! On a website where we are all about having exquisite looking items for our avatars to equip, how has no one suggested Alexander McQueen fashion items?! gonk
For those of you who don't know, he was pretty much the greatest haute couture fashion designer of our age.
A few pictures:
Please Gaia? PLEEEEEAAASE??? cryingheart
I don't even care if it were Dernier Cri, I'd quest the s**t out of it!!
But, otherwise, I see some neat concepts that would mesh well in Gaia's atmosphere. Some of the outfits in the picture with all the orange are ringing "Don't we already have something similar to this?" bells in my head, but I can't pinpoint anything in memory so I'll just say it's similar enough to Gaia-themed stuff anywho, why not?
I am never going to understand the rules of fashion. The crazier and more flamboyant an outfit/piece of clothing, the more fashionable it is. I'm such a simple plane Jane. The only thing there I'd consider wearing is the cloak and third image down that Viviette Valentine posted.
None the less, since this is Gaia, those kind of things fit right at home and I know a lot of people other than myself would really love to have them. I don't see why we can't have more of the designs. Why not? Outlandish fashion fits right at home here. heart
▌■You are just looking at it from the wrong angle C: those clothes aren't meant to be the type to make you think: "oh I could wear that next friday with that cute purse I bought last week", they are couture, they are art, they are, mmm, I'll just quote this from a really good episode of Ugly Betty (minute 2:54): "fashion is art, it's, just another way of taking what's on the inside and putting it out there for everyone else to experience it, it's not shallow it's corageous it's, beautiful." it might be a little dramatic but that's basically it~ many designers have in their collections pieces that can be actually worn and some that are just for the runway, just to be seen and experienced C: those two overlap sometimes of course and there are no written rules, nor what I'm posting is what everyone else thinks XD;;; but I just find it so fascinating I couldn't resist quoting you, I really hope you don't take this as me lecturing you or anything of the sort ;> 3< it's just a topic that interests me and I never get to talk about it, sorry XD
I agree with you about those pieces fitting in Gaia though C: many collections feel like the designer is shaping a fantasy land and telling a bit of the people living there through their clothing, it would be nice to give them a home in an actual fantasy land XD ours~■▐
I think the only time we ever got an actual fashion designer's NAMED clothing items here were the Christian Siriano set. I don't think we'll ever get the estate of Alexander McQueen to release exact copies, but... having a little creative licensing and some tribute items certainly can't hurt. Besides, all of that practically screams "Gaian" style.
