A 'fashion' story

When the Count saw my face, his eyes blazed with a sort of demoniac fury, and he suddenly made a grab at my throat. I drew away, and his hand touched the string of beads which held the crucifix. It made an instant change in him, for the fury passed so quickly that I could hardly believe that it was ever there’.
Porcelain skin, wide eyes (not) shut, mechanical dolls bodies, red blood key to switch them on at twilight. Crucifixes, pieces of jewellery on black nun’s clothes. Precious fabrics inspired by priest clothes on the MA Catwalk ’12 at V&A. Perfumes made by the sweetest peachy scented skin.

 Body size, 12. Anna wearing now, SS10. John, drunk. Pigeons shot by peacocks. Furry bags. Everything out of fashion = crime. 
Girls in The Factory, Basquait in a big world, losing sense of re-presentation, infinite meanings of objects = lack of definitions.

What is fashion? Rewind. Models raising funds for already lost causes? (exclamation mark). Self-promotion = crime.
Crimes of fashion or fashion of crimes?

God of Fashion,
Please save Eve’s and Adam’s fashion, but leave the snake skin print away! We hate being cold. Call Florence from Chanel’s white s(h, n)ow to give him the poison apple. And God, something else, please don’t let any more people to work with their lives for the fashion. I love fashion God, but I rather question things out instead of taking them as they are given to me.

What I get?
Let’s learn a better equation: Fashion ≠ Crimes.
