questions for gareth roberts

Okay, so no, i haven't got any pictures, videos or voice clips from the Gareth Roberts/Vivienne Westwood Red Label/Arts event i attended on Saturday. BUT, it was a very inspiring talk (he attended central st. martins, which automatically makes him a personal hero), and he was incredibly sweet, and answered all of my questions, of which, embarrassingly for my friend, there were many. He talked about the entire design process, how artwork inspires his work, about what fashion means to him, which was all very intresting, and was kind of a kid-in-a-sweet store scenario for me. Unfortunately, as soon as the museum attendant saw me with the camera, she informed me that we WEREN'T allowed to use cameras in the gallery which was a major dissapointment.

However, after the show, me and my friend went over to talk to him, and i mentioned how i had wanted to post about the talk on my blog, and he very kindly gave me the number of his PR so i could call and interview him! Which, of course, has put me in fashion exhilaration mode for the whole of today.

So my question is:
Do you have anything you would like me to ask him?
I plan on calling monday/tuesday so please comment or email asap.

Oh, and thankyou so much for your sweet comments on my last post- really made my day :)

strikeapose said...

your linked dear. and i'm so jealous you live in england!

adele said...

that is fantastic, hooray for you!
it sounds like it was really good, something i'd have liked to go to.
ikea is a dangerous place. it's way too inspiring. everything is so minimalist but awesome at the same time, and i hate hate clutter.
and at the same time, it's frustrating because the pieces are a bit dodgily made sometimes, and are hard to put together. still, it's a very fun shopping trip.
this interview will be great for your blog, too :)
would i kill for a vivienne westwood red blazer or what!

Divinity Avenue said...

I did indeed take all of the photos. I am enjoying photos right now.

Eelie said...

YAY! I'm excited for you. Should be a neat interview cannot wait for his responce.

I'm a bit anxious when it comes to searching for suitable questions but i'd be interested to know if he follows what the current trends of the moment are and does he adjust his designs so that they are more fluid with the rest of the fashion industrys designs.

Or something along those lines lol.

Thank goodness for that disclaimer. I do not fancy acting the fool on video. I believe i do enough of that in photos haha.

Does he have any constant sources of inspiration or does it change often?

(Lucky you, can't wait to see how this interview turns out!)

KEREN said...

I'm sure you know what to ask him; I only ask for all the gory details once the interview is conducted.

Late night snacking is fun, almost like a secret you are keeping =]

I would ask him- what is was like working side by side Vivienne Westwood? And what creates the inspiration. What influences his work?
