Gareth Pugh's Second Day of Live Genius
This is the second day of Gareth Pugh's livestream with Showstudio. He's creating a dress, and while I know nothing about making dresses, I'm pretty sure there is a crapload of extra work that is going into this sure-to-be-breathtaking couture creation. The pattern/detail drafting and cutting seems especially involved, he's been doing it for two long days and still going.Gareth and his faithful assistant LucyHe really started to get into it! No, he was just blowing off chalk dust, I think.
The livestream was supposed to have ended at 6 pm but the trouper that he is, he went until 7:20. And so did Lucy, let's not forget her. Their backs must be breaking.
Considering the amount of intensive labour going into this dress by the esteemed designer himself and the ridiculous going rate for the simplest of designer ready to wear frocks made in Chinese factories, the price tag will end up to be around £1 million. But seriously, I'm dying to see the end result and how all of these little scale-like shapes will figure into it - Gareth said he hopes to be finished on Wednesday - and I'm very curious to find out what it does wind up costing for what is really a piece of art.
