besides the actual design work, none of these projects could have been individually accomplished or realised | many of the designs were made with the help of professional artisans and craftspeople who were sought and employed for their skill and expertise | since these projects are technical experiments that seek to understand and apply local traditional techniques of making, it was impossible to work alone | the myth that designers, like artists, are individual creators is an insidious fallacy | the myth that made objects are more important than makers is even worse | all labour under capitalism is exploitative, which is why I am eternally indebted to the individuals and groups that have enabled me to achieve success in my work
anti-fashion is design that rejects capitalist relations of production & market priorities: their definitions & standards of value, success, beauty, & style . . .
