ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Interview with Björk

BJĂ–RK: When I was thinking about you, for some reason I remembered an interview I’d read with this one architect. He talked about something he called the “tyranny of the oblivious.â€? He thinks there are two types of creative people — the people who gather ideas, and the people who fall into a state of oblivion and create something out of nothing. He sees himself as a gatherer, and he can’t stand the second group. His theory is that the people who collect ideas feel really threatened by those who create from nothing. That’s what he means by the tyranny of the oblivious. Which group do you think you are in? ALEXANDER: I would be the dreamer.

JENNIFER: When did you start to design clothes? REM: After a few years, I wanted to push the store

forward creatively, so I started making clothes myself. I had never sewn in my life, never made a pattern. I really learned on the job.

JENNIFER: I completely relate to learning as you go. I have interns who know more than me. I don’t know anything about fashion. Imitation of Christ was a project I started just to see how far I could go with it. I never had any training. I went to art school, dropped out, and became an actor. I don’t think of myself as a designer either! REM: Not having any training can be a good thing.

JENNIFER: The attention that Imitation of Christ has received has been wonderful, but also overwhelming. Plus, I’m a very disorganized person. REM: I’m sure you are not. You can’t run a busi-

ness without being totally organized.

JENNIFER: I wish it was more of a business and less of a project - but we’re working on that. The main thing is

to keep from becoming stagnant. That’s the worst jail sentence. REM: And the biggest mistake people in this indus-

try make is thinking that moving from place to place will give them creative freedom. The tREM is, you can create no matter where you are. It’s not going to happen just because you move somewhere. Nobody is going to be creative for you. Nobody is going to say, “Here is your opportunity, do whatever you want for the rest of your life.� Hello, what fantasy is that?

JENNIFER: When did you start to design clothes? REM: After a few years, I wanted to push the store

forward creatively, so I started making clothes myself. I had never sewn in my life, never made a pattern. I really learned on the job.

JENNIFER: I completely relate to learning as you go. I have interns who know more than me. I don’t know anything about fashion. Imitation of Christ was a project I started just to see how far I could go with it. I never had any training. I went to art school, dropped out, and became an actor.

JENNIFER: The attention that Imitation of Christ has received has been wonderful, but also overwhelming. Plus, I’m a very disorganized person. REM: I’m sure you are not. You can’t run a busi-

JENNIFER: I wish it was more of a business and less of a project - but we’re working on that. The main thing is to keep from becoming stagnant. That’s the worst jail sentence. REM: And the biggest mistake people in this indus-

Nobody is going to be creative for you. Nobody is going to say, “Here is your opportunity, do whatever you want for the rest of your life.� Hello, what fantasy is that?
