Lady Gaga Explains What Avant-garde Means to Her


Last night the Launch My Line contestants were tasked with creating avant-garde outfits. Bravo brought Lady Gaga in to help, lucky bastards. She told them: "For me when I’m thinking about either designing a piece or choosing a piece to wear, I think about a shape. If you as a designer — your aesthetic were to walk through a wooden door, what shape would it leave? I think it’s also important to be consistent with yourselves. Just because we’re doing a heightened avant-garde sense of who we are doesn’t mean we start shredding things and making, you know, giant hats — it still has to be you." [Official site]
