Mr. Beene

One of my favorite jobs in grad school was working in the archive at Geoffrey Beene. I came across this blog last week and it made me think about what an amazing experience it was to see all of his amazing creations up close. Even though his clothes (especially in the 80s) could lean a little loud, the construction was always so immaculate and amazing. I feel like the rise of high end ready to wear has killed the sort of fashion designing that could come from knowledge of the human body and the ability to design for an individual body, not just a sample size.
