You Should Know Pugh

It's truly breathtaking to see successful designers making art the essence of their collections.

Newcomer Gareth Pugh has already been compared to Alexander McQueeen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood not only because of his dark, punk, futuristic, avant garde esthetics but because so few designers dare to go to the dark side.

The video crosses fashion, art and a dark dreamlike state just like my life. Enjoy.

P.S. I'm so behind in pop culture that I had to refer to the Youtube reference library to go check out Beyonce's Sweet Dreams video. Beyonce says it was inspired by Pugh and that Sasha Fierce (not Beyonce) is a huge fan of Pugh and has worn his designs.

I repeat Sasha Fierce (not Beyonce) has worn Pugh.

Sidenote: Valentina Valentine would DIE, DIE, DIE for everything Pugh. siiiiiigh.

His earlier stuff was waaaay out of control. Hopefully it won't become too safe as he becomes more famous.
