...I am very much a textile guy, someone watching me closely in my favorite men's store or even at the design center going through fabric swatches can see this quite clearly...I love really complex weaves and textures much more than i do prints, and Im a firm believer in buliding spaces on texture rather than color or print, its just me. Quilts have been another big inspiration for me for quite a long time, rememebering visiting antique malls in New Hampshire and Amish fairs in Pennsyvania when I was little I was always drawn to them. I have wanted to do a quilt collection for a while now utilizing found materials and have been collecting vintage textiles for such a project for a few years now. It seem a few people are a bit ahead of me... www.apc.fr (ahem) ...makes sense though, I have allot of their pieces and respect their view on fashion and art. anyways...I LIKE QUILTS.
