    Is form your master or your slave? Diane von Furstenberg’s aesthetic: Lots of layers, flowy, elegant Marlene Dietrich in A Foreign Affair a spy, a glamour girl Berlin, Shanghai … I set the video rolling on longplay halfway through the night before it nets up everything for those six hours Project Runway included our Saturday morning ritual over toast & jam My taste is impeccable Daniel’s pompous declaration earned him a braying laugh last week from poster-girl Kenley This time her skimpy dress is “simply not enough” to net the prize No-one can layer prints like you do Tim flatters Diane accepts the tribute as her due The designers wet themselves with glee to serve such a big name Is form your master or your slave? I am an artist on the level of Michelangelo or Van Gogh thundered Santino two years ago Where is he now? Designing quietly, one hopes in Venice Beach Supererogatory, yes the insights quasi-accidental & yet I feel myself debate the cut fall for the sharpness of a silhouette (4/4-18/6/09)
