small talk with alex black
DESCRIBE YOUR AESTHETIC IN 3 WORDS.
Today and yesteryear
WHAT’S THE MOST EXCITING THING ABOUT YOUR INDUSTRY TODAY ?
There are no rules. While the trajectory for your career development was well established and linear in the past, there is no right or wrong way today.
HOW DO YOU THINK STYLE AND POP-CULTURE WILL CHANGE IN 2018 ?
The biggest game changer for me will be 3D printing. The day we can print organic materials, not plastics, will change the entire industry. From the way materials are sourced, garments are designed, and even sold as you could technically make something to your exact dimensions and even from home!
WORDS OF WISDOM FOR TODAY'S YOUTH ?
Get off the internet. Find inspiration in the world around you. Conduct business in person. Nurture real human relationships. Stop comparing yourself and start working, hard. Nothing will ever be served to you like a feed does.
COLLABORATORS YOU’VE WORKED WITH WHO BECAME YOUR GO-TO NINJAS ?
Ames Amore, an NYC based makeup artist, as she is always game to try my crazy ideas and with a big smile! Some work, and some don't, but no matter what, we have fun doing it and we all learn from it.
