You know who gets cast these days? The girl they can remember after she's left the room and then she's on the board, as a part of the puzzle that is the certain taste of the strongest designers in the business. Why do they remember her? Because to paraphrase the immortal Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele..."she brought something to the situation."

“As a devotee of clothing and textiles in particular; I decided to analyze and dissect our obsession with fashion by dedicating a theme to the phenomenon of fetishism. An analysis of our desire to know and express ourselves; from covering and veiling to the most eccentric extremes which the desire for beauty can lead to. I wanted to look for the strong links which exist between an item of clothing and the wearer; the passion which can be caused by a pair of shoes or the emotional experience which the tactility of a textile can give us.”

Singularity. That's the thing that makes a model vital. And this Gurmit Kaur, was a powerful presence in the very early 90's as model and muse. Born in Singapore but gifted with a classical Indian beauty by her parents, Gurmit Kaur crackled with a kind of exciting elegance that drove legions of fashion perfectionists crazy. Alaia, Versace, Meisel, Steven Klein, Saint Laurent, American Vogue, all buzzed in synch with her kinetic presence. After the modeling madness wound down Gurmit reinvented herself as a distinctly gifted jewelry designer. But she can probably tell her story far better than I ever could.

A great story behind the story that was the freshly concluded SS14 session of #NYFW was the response posted to the call to arms issued by Bethann Hardison and Iman in Eric Wilson's Aug 7th article in the NY Times. Titled "Fashion's Blind Spot", it was a redux of the brouhaha that exploded 5 years ago on the subject of black models in fashion, with the customary shifting of responsibility where clients blamed the agencies, and the agencies damned the clients for imposing a "quota" system on the use of "models of color".
What was new and what made the issue freshly relevant was Iman's use of the "B" word...as in boycott. “It feels to me like the times need a real hard line drawn like in the 1960s, by saying if you don’t use black models, then we boycott. If you engage the social media, trust me, it will hurt them in their pockets. If you take it out there, they will feel the uproar...” , Iman passionately stated in the article.

"But of the 7 Most Relevant fashion mags that define the market , there's still two critical covers yet to be revealed. The Squad has the inner hiss and let's just say in one case those fashionspotters are going to go mad for a supermodel bounty not seen on that magazine's cover in like, three years..."
