E.Laval Fashion Review!

The Baron reviewed my menswear in his online journal today...

While I felt that he somewhat commended me, I winced at the word "loud" (knowing of his penchant for darker colors) and took issue with some other points, of which you can read in my comment to the post itself.

Once, in RL, over lunch I asked a very well-known symphony chorus conductor how he felt about reviews. He raised an eyebrow, looked at me and grimaced. "Fffft!" he practically hissed in disgust. "I don't. I just can't pay attention to them. I think about how I discuss and disagree with my colleagues. Imagine if we were writing the review--you'd have one person who loved it and another who hated it. It is too subjective."

Do not misunderstand me, as a new designer I am most certainly glad and appreciative for the review, and will still think about what was said. Everyone is entitled to their opinion...

Continue to design from the heart and not for reviews.
And to quote dear Oscar Wilde...

Ha! I thought about that quote as I was reading it!

I don't think Mr. Benmurgui gave you a raving review, but it did jog me to visit mayfair and buy some vests.. particularly the ones he didn't like for some odd reason.
