What do you think about the relation between Fashion and Cinema? In what way do you think fashion films could help both industries?
We are what we wear. It is always present, if somewhat unconscious and invisible, like sound. Fashion cinema points to this.

I have been teaching interdisciplinary performance for the past 20 years. It pays back a karmic debt because I am very impassioned about my students’ work.
