I know this sounds serious, but it’s more like a comedy routine. When reading this, imagine a laugh track after every line, that’s what the reading by Ginsberg sounds like.
In Case You Were Wondering
By Alisha Trimble
I still remember
That time you let me down, and
I don’t forgive you.
Everything I need for my next trip around the sun is here.
Well, you could never accuse me of having poor taste …

Raf Simons is more popular than ever after speaking out against the breakneck race to provide fashion to the masses, saying he would personally prefer more time to devote to the creative process. What the articles don’t mention is the working conditions sustaining fast fashion’s pace are worse than slavery with no regard to human life. That part was left out. Shame on everybody.
While the debate continues on basic vs fashion … Know this: people might notice when you wear a fabulous dress twice, they notice that you are FABULOUS. People also notice when you wear plain clothes and what they notice is that you are BASIC. The choice is yours.
People ask me if the work I do is made by hand or by machines. There are always hands and there are always machines and they work together. Just about everything we wear is touched by hands whether to cut the fabric or to run it through a serger. This is done by living people. Purely hand made or machine made is figmentitious. People come to me looking for absolutes and they ask yes or no questions that I can’t possibly answer politely. More out of ignorance than rudeness.
The answer though, is that the works in my store are hand-finished. If you’re interested in collecting them or if it is for an article I can reveal the details of what goes into each dress, happily. But as a public service I’m not at liberty to discuss.
One day while I was catching up on current events, I noticed an initiative on behalf of the president to create hi-tech textiles in the US- and it spurred many thoughts on the current state of the industry. So, I collected my thoughts and wrote him a letter, overviewing what I’d like him to help fix.
When I dropped the envelope into the letterbox, I felt a lifting sensation, as though something good was going to come of it.
I was thrilled to see his response today- I wonder what others may think. Do you think his response was appropriate?
