"Fashion is so often presented in our culture as a thing of froth, which of course,
it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with such care and a sense of values."

"Attempting to achieve perfection in art seems to be the passive aggressive way we express failing to achieve perfection in reality"- Woody Allen

 Just Imagine,
Imagine setting out
Without sails, maps, or compass to claim
Every continent and two-bit desert island
From here to Bimini and the North Pole,
Trusting the wind to toss your starving party
Onto a sandy void a world away.
And then to settle down and make a life
Complete with language, gods, and table manners
Out of an empty waste … .

—Paul Lake, from “The Century Killer,” from issue 113, Winter II 1989
