A fabric that resembles the person wearing it

How do you choose a fabric?
Sometimes, you just know; other times, it’s not that easy. When you choose a fabric, aside from considering the shape it will have on your body, the endorphins must kick in before the analytical brain begins its litany of appraisals: “will keep you warm/cool; drapes well/binds; wrinkles easily/holds a crease; is on-trend/clichéd”.

A fabric and, by extension, a garment, walks into the world ahead of us, an ambassador that forges its way through the crowd without any need to elbow or shout.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. William Shakespeare

Because the creative idea may materialize at any instant and from any thing…

It is infinitely easier with art because artists listen to their intuition and come up with insights and solutions that are there for all to see.
But it’s our job to know how to unearth them, beyond the familiar designations.
