I look forward to the much anticipated Met Gala as many
others look forward to the Academy Awards. I brace myself and
read up as much of what is expected to happen both on the red
carpet as well as the actual exhibit which I will visit as
soon as I can get there.

As a designer I can only imagine what an honor it must be to
have yourself and your works chronicled displayed and studied
by the masses. I can only dream to one day have such a
privilege bestowed o me, even on a small scale. In the mean
time I strive to constantly learn and grow as a designer by
studying and understanding as much about the honored
designers, their visions and aesthetics that has given them
their individuality and longevity in this incredibly diverse

Rei Kawakubo is a visionary breaking all of the rules of
conventional fashion and forcing one to question what is
fashion and how it is or can be Interpreted. Kawakubo forces
us to stretch our imaginations by presenting shapes
compositions that breaks all the molds of what we consider
normal. It is not to everyone’s taste or liking yet it is
something deserving a closer look and investigation.

I decided to look into and try to understand the meaning of
Avant Guard Fashion and the designer considered the queen of
this art form. The more I investigated the more I learned
that there are so many layers to understand and as a result I
find myself traveling down the virtual rabbit hole wanting to
explore further and eventually experiment or at the very
least delve in this form of expression.

As a tribute to Rei Kawakubo being honored by the Met Gala, I
decided to recreate in my signature canine creations, three
ensembles as done by the genius for her brand Comme des
Garcons or as the true fans call it CdG.

Dog Models: Bogie and Kimba.
