Inside the Inseam

by jennine on December 2, 2008

Watching designers operate behind the scenes always puts another perspective on fashion. So often, I just take for granted I like something and it magically appears in my closet, and every time I talk with a designer, it’s always a long story about tons of work, small amounts of sleep, and loads of obsession. Inseam is a new webisode series sponsored by Cotton that follows emerging designers through all the highs and lows of fashion… from interviews with Sue Stemp (who has gone on her own after designing with Daryl K and Tocca), to the Look Book process and also they go to fashion week. The episodes are short and sweet, which I love to watch when I’m looking for some fashion entertainment, and I’m too lazy to read.

It’s really nice to see the internet for short fashion episdoes, it’s really staring to develop its own language, like Threadbanger‘s DIY video resource,  Inseam has great production value,  it is a little more straightforward than IQONS TV… but really… what I’m hoping for is someone to adapt the idea of TED to fashion… not that I don’t love TED, I’m throughouly addicted, but if it were fashion, well, I might be too busy watching it to write this blog.

It is amazing to see what goes on behind the scenes, isn’t it. What amazes me are the things that don’t make it to the final Look Book - things that get cut from collections. The designer I work for is a magician! I swear - the things she comes up with are - WOW!

oh tell me about it… i’ve been in some designers studios and there is always these crazy pieces that never even make it to the runway, it kind of makes me sad… but then, it’s cool to know there is so much more room for experiment than what you see on the runways.

I sometimes don’t want to see the other (sometimes dark) side of fashion. I know quite a few people who ‘got’ out of the industry.. saying that it was soul destroying. grrr. I guess it takes all sorts!
