While I appreciate the significance of being printed in this British VOGUE issue (and others), I'm finding it difficult today to get excited about such work given the current state of the fashion industry.

With Weber and Testino, both of whom we're personal heros of mine, betraying MY trust as an admirer, as well as the most recent trends in fashion (including the pervasive quality pitfalls of fast fashion), it's very difficult to get excited about my monthly issues of W, Harper's, VOGUE, et all anymore.

Couple these issues with Anna Wintour homoginizing everything under the Conde Nast umbrella and we are left with a post apocalyptic shell of an industry that was already shallow to begin with.

In the end I'm just a nobody in a sea of billions of

Thanks for abusing us all, us consumers, and kicking us to the curb then pretending we are the problem. #fashion #fashionmagazine #vogue #condenast #editorial #fashionshoot #fashionphotography
