I almost choked on my croissant while browsing style.com!
What are the chances of me and a first world, Paris-showing designer having somewhat the same idea - details, concept and all?
What are the odds that Gareth Pugh would show for spring/summer 2009 his love for pleats and having all his clothes with black colored back and a lighter color on the front, same as mine?
I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse.
See Gareth Pugh:
See one sample of my pants for spring/summer 2009:
It's the same pleat detail and all black back!
I know for a fact that I didn't copy him since I've formulated my own concept way before his Paris presentation. I can't help but be slightly irked though because let's be real, some Filipino designers back home do copy other designers. I'm slightly worried people might think I did copy Gareth Pugh. Ugh! I don't even like his designs.
Well, sorry for the rant. I just have to go on with what I've started because frankly I don't have time to revise it and also because I've submitted already my concept and drawings to the organizers of Philippine Fashion Week.
