"Because fashion, I'm the first to encapsulate this realistically, nobody needs it. I mean, we need clothes; do we need fashion? No. And fashion when it's good, it comes out of a context that's societal and cultural and historic and economic and political. So it's of a time and a place."
To which Jon Stewart responded: "Why isn't everyone as reasonable as you as a human being?"
So true. I think we need more Tim Gunns in the world. Not only is he eloquent and well-spoken, but he's sensible and not elitist or snobby, though so many in his field are.
Love him. Love.
