    Simple explanation is that these designers were teased mercilessly, by girls, as a child and now they get their revenge by dressing hottest ones up in ridiculous clothes/furniture and making them prance around their peers.

    MissMage is right. There is a difference between fashion shows where the clothes are meant to be purchased and fashion shows that are purely an artistic expression of the designer.

    How many times must we go over this? Fashion shows are not showing what real human beings would ever actually wear, rather, it is a show where fashion designers show off their creativity by coming up with an idea that no one has ever seen before, in this case, art that can be worn.

    For everyone saying "you`re not meant to wear it on the street, it`s art, duh": I think most people get that. That doesn`t mean we can`t think it`s ridiculous.
    It may be art, but I personally think it`s contrived and a bit silly.

    Here`s your explanation: haute couture fashion designers are woman-hating queers who love to dress models up in ridiculous, humiliating monstrosities so they can snicker at them behind their backs. Fashion models are just whores who will dress up in ridiculous, humiliating monstrosities for money and coke.

    It`s fine you don`t like it. But all of your comments are flippin` boring and stupid.

    cagel:

    ^^ That is art. I might not particularly like it, but I know it when I see it.

    Wearing a table is not art. It`s retarded. There is no message, no social commentary, no deeper meaning. There`s just a moronic designer putting a table on a model because it`s unusual and therefore in the designer`s warped mind they are being "edgy".
    Doing retarded things because they are retarded is not art.

    And if all our comments bore you so much, feel free to go do something else. It`s unlikely you`ll be missed.

    I could analyze this piece by noting the victorian (or colonial) style folds of the dress coincide with the style in furniture. Perhaps it`s a commentary on how women have historically been wallflowers, furniture?

    Now, that`s a basic, obvious analysis of the piece. Just because you are too stupid or lazy or judgmental to stop and do a quick reading of a creative work doesn`t mean that it`s meaningless.

    nice portrayal of your douchebaggedness. If the model was perhaps from Europe, you would have an excuse for fapping your hole. After all, europe usually sets the example for being f*cked up for america. figures you can`t perceive anything as art other than oil on canvas.

    Wearing a table is not art. It`s retarded. There is no message, no social commentary, no deeper meaning.

    I`d say, wearing a table *randomly* is retarded. But this is not random. I mean, I wouldn`t call it art either but the aesthetic intention is obvious. For example, as someone already said, the styles of the clothes and the furniture do match.
    Besides, art does not neccesarily always has those things you say. Art is subjective (yes, by "definition"), art is mainly just an expression of creativity.

    To which OldOllie adds, "Yes, dress models up in ridiculous, humiliating monstrosities..."

    It seems we agree on what they are doing. We can quibble over their motives. You can get noticed by standing on a downtown street corner and flinging your poo at passersby, so there must be a bit more to it than that. I`m sure money plays a huge part, but I still bet they were ROTF when they sent this dumb [email protected] out there wearing a fapping table. I wouldn`t be surprised if they were placing bets on whether she would actually do it.

    Explain it? Well, there`s a billion things missing from this...what`s the context of the show? Is it a school show? A charity show? Obviously, this is haute couture and is intended as a costume and not street wear; but without further context of the show and it`s intent, it`s impossible to say what`s going on.

    Quite artistic actually, it`s obviously not meant for streetwear or anything of the sort. Certainly interesting to look at. I`d be interested to learn the context of the situation.

    Perhaps it`s a commentary on how women have historically been wallflowers, furniture?

    Or perhaps you`re grabbing for any meaning you can think of to justify your position. Girl wearing furniture, because girls = furniture! Clevar.
    Also, if your stated reading is true, note the unbelievable hypocrisy in using a model to convey said message.

    figures you can`t perceive anything as art other than oil on canvas.

    Don`t be an idiot. I provided one example, which happened to be a painting. I could easily have posted Michaelangelo`s David, or a Ming vase or something.

    Here`s some more art for you to analyze cagel:

    I love the way the artist has captured the essentially pointless and trivial nature of our short human lives with his random, almost careless scattering of white and black. It`s a metaphor for the futility of human existence. Also note the even spread of black and white - a powerful message about the anti-apartheid movement, wouldn`t you agree?

    art...(though most of you would never call this art) has no particular objection, only sense of abstract expression.

    almightybob1: using a model for that possible rhetoric (it could be a totally wrong reading) is not hypocrisy, but rather as a way of drawing the rhetoric directly on fashion. The model is the woman, the woman and the table are the same. Fashion is the focal point rather than the wearer.

    Just because you don`t like my reading doesn`t mean I`m grasping. I`m using methods of analysis that you have clearly never learned. Your ignorance does not negate the possibility of rhetoric.

    also, almightybob1, by positioning that snow-screen photo and positioning it with a mock explanation, you have just made art.

    Look up Duchamp`s readymades. You just made a readymade. You just made art. Now, couldn`t that be fun and exhilarating rather than cynical and destructive?

    The word `fashion` means trend, am I right?
    The last time I looked down my street, I did not see people wearing fk`in tables!
    There is no trend towards wearing tables,
    It is not fashion. It`s insanity.

    a trend is a general way that something is developing.... so true art can create a trend, not everything is about FASHION magazines..
    and this is not a trend, its a lame phenomenon

    Did you bother to understand what a readymade is? Or who Duchamp is?

    Your satire may not be good art, but your rhetoric and method was an artistic one.

    You`re an ignoramus, dude. You try to turn my own statements against me when you have absolutely no idea what I`m talking about, clearly. If you bothered to know what art is, maybe you wouldn`t be so quick to criticize.
