I've always wanted to work in the fashion world since I can remember. I did mind what to do: create clothes, accessories or say what is or is not cool ... I wanted to work in the fashion world. Finally, I decided I wanted to study coolhunting, with about fourteen, and that was partly the fault of someone who I considered my muse Kate Moss.
Kate was a discovery for me as it was for many of us. Among lots of supermodela (ebony goddesses and stunning blonde), Calvin Klein took this little girl, with her big nose and not-so-perfect skin; and put her into the main stream. I was amazed, it seemed a wise bet and cool ... and believe me, saying something is cool with thirteen years seems easy, but guess it... is no longer so.
I started to decorate my wall with photos of her in black and white color ... someone looked normal, walk, close ... even today I still think it has been a muse and an icon of the nineties.
And suddenly, there is the Kate Moss diva, haughty, with tantrums, fits of hysteria and the desire to be cool based on news in the tabloids and yellow press. Suddenly they are the nineties, reached 2000, a new century ... and Kate seems to be the Courtney Love of the world of haute couture. Boyfriends problematic, drug use, scandals ... Where is that girl I used to admired? No longer, now I see only a very thin woman who wants to reign forever, when we all know that's impossible.
Don't get me wrong, I am not an innocent or something. I know in the fashion world is all this and more. But I find it regrettable that precisely the fashion world, that "guilt" by Kate Moss was relegated to a low opinion (remember how many times have you heard blame for food problems to designers) forgive a failure so serious. And so I say serious because, remember that Kate, who was my muse, is nowadays the same for millions of teenagers, which will surely follow her until the end of the world. If you get a line of cocaine, you may lose a contract, but if you apologize and say you're not going to re-do (like us to believe, HA!), you'll go five in a week.
I spent years working with adolescents, many of them in extreme situations of risk ... Is not this what we try to prevent? Does this belief that "no matter, I'm, the rebel, always win"? I will not write now on a crusade about yes or no to drugs, but one thing is certain: it is a very turbulent world. Should not Miss Kate be a little more responsible with their public image, and watch what they do in private? Honestly, I don't care if this lady pull the laptop from her boyfriend (Jamice Hinche) to a pool and a hard fuck him ... but should be careful where (and what) sticks his great nose.
That is why, among many other small details that you stopped being my muse, Kate. You don't look cool, or smart, a role model or someone with style for me anymore.
Frankly, although I know it was more of the same ... I miss the supermodels like Linda and Claudia. They hawked at least not his private life and knew how to reign, hence are still queens.
Thanks for reading... and remember.
I'm not here to please you.
