From Anthony Rubio:

My tribute to Rei Kawakubo;

I look forward to the much anticipated  Met Gala as many others look forward to the Academy Awards. I brace myself and read up as much of what is expected to happen both on the red carpet as well as the actual exhibit which I will visit as soon as I can get there.

As a designer I can only imagine what an honor it must be to have yourself and  your works chronicled displayed and studied by the masses. I can only dream to one day have such a privilege bestowed o  me, even on a small scale. In the mean time I strive to constantly learn and grow as a designer by studying and understanding as much about the honored designers, their visions and aesthetics that has given them their individuality and longevity in this incredibly diverse industry.

Rei Kawakubo is a visionary breaking all of the rules of conventional fashion and forcing one to question what is fashion and how it is or can be Interpreted. Kawakubo forces us to stretch our imaginations by presenting shapes compositions that breaks all the molds of what we consider normal. It is not to everyone’s taste or liking yet it is something deserving a closer look and investigation.

I decided to look into and  try to understand the meaning of Avant Guard Fashion and the designer considered the queen of this art form. The more I investigated the more I learned that there are so many layers to understand and as a result I find myself traveling down the virtual rabbit hole wanting to explore further and eventually experiment or at the very least delve in this form of expression.

As a tribute to Rei Kawakubo being honored by the Met Gala, I decided to recreate in my signature canine creations, three ensembles as done by the genius for her brand Comme des Garcons or as the true fans call it CdG.

    These creations are adorable on these smaller dogs, but my 80 lb labrador , not so much. Would love to see outfits for larger dogs.
