This is my “Freaky Friday” pick for today by Manish Arora. This bodice cage is carved from wood, (definitely a masterpiece) but I’m not sure if I’d ever wear this. Well, I take that back. I’d probably wear this if I was married to a doctor.
Scenario: We’re fighting because he’s forcing me to go to another empty, social gathering with his colleagues and their trophy wives at The Country Club. He tells me that it’s my duty to make an appearance. The marriage is already on the rocks and I’m sick and tired of fake people with fake boobs and fake lips. I show up late making an “appearance” all right, in this ensemble. (Only I’d add a few hospital wrist bands for an extra dose of accessories.) And, since everyone’s face in the room is frozen from all of the plastic surgery and Botox, I can’t detect any reactions except the horrified look on my doctor spouse as he quickly ushers me back out to the car. Brilliant!
Or…if my name was Lady Gaga, I would snatch this Manish Arora piece up in a hot second for my next show!
I could seriously write about this all day. What was Manish thinking? Did he call his mom crying the night before Paris Fashion Week opened claiming he had no creative energy? Did his mother try comforting him with words of encouragement, “Look inside you son, the idea is inside you!” And then a lightbulb went off?
“That’s it!” Yells Arora, “I’ll pull my insides out!”
OK, I’m signing off now before I say something snarky. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Stay creative!
