I cannot say that I follow fashion, and I definitely do not dress particularly well. My personal preference is for the functional hi-tech mountain gear, but I also would not say no to a nice pair of leather shoes. However I find that an extremely useful way to procrastinate is to browse through the numerous vintage fashion blogs populating the internet. Whenever I am worried about making the design decision that would create the most relevant visual result, looking at clothing that is deprived of its function as social signifier and desire object can truly reveal the process and decision making involved in the design as well as give a sense of reassurance. This successfully simulates time travel – one of the most empowering and refreshing experiences one can have.
