On the Future of Fashion

"Today when I see women trying a dress on, the first thing they do is take a picture: they want to see how they look in a photo. This is a phenomenon; I keep asking myself, did the photo replace the mirror? Do women today dress for their body or for the photograph - what is more important to them? Then I start to question the whole world of technology and its rapidity: the fact that you can click and delete, that you can click and appear. This is something about the process, about the workmanship versus technology and the speed of the photo. Is the only way to be heard today to scream on the screen? Is there a place for whispering?" (Alber Elbaz, formerly of Lanvin, on the future of fashion at AnOther, 2015)
