@Bee For Brian I am mildly bummed out to learn that my painstaking assembled "dreamhouse" from the Spiegel 1978 interiors catalogue in a looseleaf notebook was not, technically, scrapbooking. I guess I was moodboarding? I am glad to feel validated about my love of Duran Duran and the many, many scrapbooks assembled in their honor.
@Bee For Brian (1) If there was a fantasy-shopping league, I would join it (in fact, I may have to start it). (2) I'm not convince this is all new and zeitgeisty. When you do this sort of thing off the web, it's called scrapbooking. There are curators of scrapbooks (NYPL Performing Arts Library has an amazing collection), but no one would argue that scrapbooking is curating (right?).
@deepomega It does not. Fashion is covered in France, but it doesn't work at all. You can basically add a ruffle and your copy becomes an original work. But all this nonsense does make me want to run downtown and buy a knock-off bag. Anything I can do to take money out of millionaire designer pockets!
I created an account just to say how excited I am to welcome back sumptuary laws. Serfdom probably won't be so bad now that we all have smart phones.
