Vanity is my favorite sin.
jurgi persoons f/w 1998, makeup by igne grognard photographed by ronald stoops:

I made an earlier post about fashion killing creativity, and this might be the best example. Jurgi Persoons, a graduate of the Antwerp Royal Academy in 1992, is a name perhaps few of you have heard of. 
'Jurgi no longer designs. He was driven out of business by economic reasons - his clothes were very expensive because of a significant amount of difficult manual work they required. The “nervous” assymmetrical stitching, highest quality fabrics, such as Dormeuil wool and a large amount of panels that went into each garment demanded a premium. Unfortunately Jurgi could not get the client base required to keep him afloat.' via
He was not a name splashed on T-shirts for sales, and put his emphasis on non-commercial work like his contemporaries Margiela and AF Vandevorst. Perhaps he doesn’t have a wikipedia page, but take a look at his past collections (here’s S/S 1999, F/W 1999 and his mirror presentation that was an aesthetic break from the traditional runway) and no one would conclude that he was anything less than a genius.
“I just prefer to make beautiful clothes.” - Jurgi Persoons
