Some days, writers feel the same way.
It's Fashion Week in Paris. Backstage.
Last Thursday, Hussein Chalayan is sittin' there, chin in hand, wondering what next. He already invented a new designer gown containing electronic circuits. At the press of a button, the hemline rises while the neckline goes down, changing a Victorian style dress into something quite different.
But how do you follow up on success like that?
Hussein ponders and thinks and ruminates to no avail. Finally, he says, "F#@k*t" and grabs a hat and a pair of shoes.
Wandering around the dressing room he shouts, "Who wears a size 7?" A volunteer gets the hat and shoes and instructions. Then she suddenly becomes the rage of Paris fashion design.
