Quote of the day: Douglas Keeve on Unzipped
“There were all these small designers who were kind of mad geniuses doing what they wanted, and it was about the beauty of [fashion]. And it went from creativity to commerce; now it’s all commerce—it’s all about numbers and [the] bottom line and focus groups. That’s what drives fashion now. It’s different worlds. It’s just different. It doesn’t mean there aren’t great people out there; it means that the business of fashion has superseded the art.”
Director Douglas Keeve on the 25th anniversary of his Unzipped documentary. This conversation between him and designer Isaac Mizrahi in Vogue is a delight!

Well said, and very sad.
Isaac would pop into Vogue all excited to show us his new designs. It was fun to be in on the design process.
