september 25, 07
At a public lecture this afternoon I got a little silly and started writing notes on my hem to "pass" to my colleague sitting next to me. An hour later and there was half a conversation written upside down along the hem of my dress in ballpoint pen: while it began as a joke, I think perhaps that note-writing such as this is perfectly appropriate in terms of making the clothes a part of my daily life and not being precious about keeping them pristine. It's not like it isn't going to be covered up in a few days anyway, and it makes sense that if I need to write myself a reminder note about something, I ought to write it on my dress, upside down somewhere around the knee so that I will see it when I sit down, and be reminded. It would keep the back of my left hand a lot cleaner.

This is fabulous.
One of the things I note in this outfit is a greater cohesiveness, and I'm not sure if I like that better simply because I like that better, or if years of training from the fashion industry has taught me to think that way.
I'd like to believe it's my personal aesthetic. I've always preferred a chromatic consistency in my clothing; I'm the woman who wears black skirt, black stockings, black shoes. So 80's, but so ... right. ;-)
I like the way your project makes me think about my own choices, and how the fashion industry molds them. Thanks. :-)

The evolution and refinement of your thesis project is fascinating. Thank you for sharing this part of your art.
