we must protect ourselves

The 90s were an incredible decade for high fashion - the Belgian, the Japanese and the (in my personal opinion) aesthetic peak of GENIUS, Thierry Mugler. Words really can't describe - this is hands down what my fashion dreams are made of. Everything was perfect: the highly sexualized female silhouette, fabrication, innovation, craftsmanship, showmanship, everything right down to the way the models walked - Please youtube 'Thierry Mugler' for more. Undoubtedly also a HUGE inspiration to the likes of Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, Nicolas Ghesquiere etc

The 90's were truly the defining years of high fashion and culture.

My favorite era- innovative, so free and liberating, then again quite structured.

Watched the ancient German movie Metropolis today and there is a scene with this robot lady and I knew instantly that she must've been the inspiration behind alot of this stuff. THe whole movies pretty trippy actually you should check it out!

Foxy, did you hear Mr Mugler is the creative director for Beyonce's tour? I read it last week in Women's Wear Daily. I suppose I understand where it fits, but it seems so wrong! I don't know..I have this unusal dislike for the woman and her music.

If you want to see it I'll scan the costume designs for you.
