fdm contributing editor cutberto bonilla shared some moments from the talk with us. written by brigitte segura
‘I like his way of thinking, it was very inspirational for me… the idea of learning, that things we love are the keys to our inspiration -his strong belief that fashion is a combination of art + design.
REED has the sensibility of an artist. He is a person who not only sees art, music, etc. as a tool to be hip and cool but also as an important aspect for our human existence…
His calm and soft spoken style is confident and real. He is also a photographer, which I can relate to… my world, my views towards fashion, society.
on the short film of behind the scenes from SPRING 2012:
‘It’s simple footage, shot by STEVEN SEBRING, and the way it was edited was just fabulous-VERY CINEMA… and just for this, I have to give him more credit..
