liz ham’s photo session with cory wallace got me thinking again about the ambiguous value of revolution and challenging the norm since a victory inevitably results in a new norm which again will be challenged. this perpetual counter reaction is one of the basic elements of the fashion paradigm and would probably make trend-forecasting almost obsolete if it wasn’t for our fickle tastes and tantrums. it’s not always about turning things completely upside down… sometimes even the smallest detail can trigger a trend.
