Nebraska, site of fashion's newest Festival, "Burning Cloth and Burning Rolling Papers", is hosting what some are calling a momentous event in Fashion.
"El Gazorb", a little-known but highly-revered designer in crop circle fashion groups - so named for his wildly unpredictable, and often unrepeatable design methods - has stated that "all will understand", with his latest offering, "People Who Have Moved Us."
The first dress down the aisle appeared on a model with a shaved head, Harry Potter glasses, and gauze bandaging, from head to foot, from which both of her breasts protruded, but which covered all of the rest of her. Stopping at the end of the runway, she grabbed both of her breasts firmly in both of her hands, defiantly, as she came to the end of the runway nearest to the crowd, in a mock machine gun pose, and shouted out, "DEATH TO CANCER", to an audience that broke out into wild and approving applause.
"The gauze egg-shaped dress, under which a T-shirt can be worn comfortably, is a testament to the audacity, tenacity, and veracity of single mothers everywhere," intoned one fashion columnist. "We understand the prototype was meshed with shellac....which we like very much, and which makes sizing definite." The ability to actually step OUT of each meticulously-produced garment during the production phase, when it is shellaced onto the wearer, who is first completely covered in pig lard, is notable.
"That so many influences - Ghandi, Harry Potter, the Easter Bunny, and the family of doctors intoning us repeatedly to quit smoking, are so evocatively included in the host of influences and movements which are a part of this statement wear is, well....a sort of practical magic," said one woman emphatically, sucking on a Gitane.
"We can overcome," said a thin woman, grabbing her own breasts, fiercely. "I am no longer apologizing for managing to save at least part of my breasts from The Enemy."
El Gazorb indicates that all in the fierce and artistic world have recently, en masse, declared war on ….you guessed it...CANCER.
"Juicing is not enough," said one man. "We must begin the replanting of the burned-down ACAI immediately. TAKE BACK LIFE. Be fierce and green, and ...not dead."
Other selections were equally moving, and just as memorable.
