I was having dinner with David Hallberg this evening. He is one of my closest friends, and one of very few who people in my life who is as interested in fashion as I am. David is really knowledgeable in many areas of the arts, and he helps keep me aware of what is going on... as I can sometimes get lost in my own process and thoughts. I don't do it as much as I should... but seeing the art of others is so important in my process as a designer. Anyways...... I have been reading a book that Harriet Jung gave me for graduation about Geoffrey Beene. He was a very important American fashion designer who I plan on blogging about very soon... Getting back on track...... Geoffrey Beene often used dancers as models for his clothes..... and David has had the good fortune of being photographed in fashion editorials in recent years..... Is this making any sense now?
The dancer as model is the subject for this blog. Seeing the movement of clothing is always fascinating to me... and who better to illustrate that.... than a dancer. Enter David...... and here we go.. Pictures.
This is a photo from L'Uomo Vogue, March 2012
