Jeremy Scott entrevista...Diciembre 2007
You have work inspired by Orlan the artist, why her and not another artist who work with the body, what was the thing that inspired you from her?
I WAS INSPIRED BY SOME OF ORLAN'S WORK WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO PARIS AND IT WAS IN A SIMUAL VEIN TO WHAT I WAS THINKING ABOUT AT THE TIME OF MY FIRST COLLECTION
Would you ever do something similar to what Orlan does?
NO THAT IS NOT WHAT MY WORK IS ABOUT.
You participated on the wheel of fortune, you use Mickey Mouse stuff, etc, are you really a postmodern artist, what do you think about that and the capitalist/consumist or fast shopping cultures?
I LOVE CAPITALISM AND THINK ITS A GREAT CONCEPT ! I LOVE POP CULTURE POP ART AND POP TARTS !!! MODERN POSTMODERN POP POST POP IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU CALL IT AS LONG AS YOU LIKE THE WAY IT MAKES YOU FEEL INSIDE !
You say that you use yourself as your inspiration and the people that surrounds you, how do this people has to be? And talking about you, what do you explore?
I THINK ABOUT WHAT I LIKE TO WEAR HOW I WOULD LIKE TO LOOK WHAT MY FRIENDS WANT TO WEAR HOW THEY LIKE TO LOOK AND EACH ONE HAS A DIFFERENT PERSONALITY AND WAY OF DRESSING SO ITS ALWAYS TAKING THIS IN CONSIDERATION -
On the book “Fashion Now“ you said "I’m just trying to provoke people”, are you intersted in making people actually “think” or what exactly do you look for?
YES I M PROVOKING PEOPLE TO THINK - TO READ JUST THEIR OPINIONS THOUGHTS IDEAS AND THE WAY THE WAY THE MAY LOOK AT FASHION OR THE WORLD DEPENDING ON WHAT IT IS IM SAYING OR DOING - I THINK ITS IMPORTANT TO BE AN EXAMPLE IN WHAT YOU DO AND THE WAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE AND THROUGH YOUR ART -
What do you think about the american fashion industry? What do you like and dislike about this?
I HAVE NO REAL OPINON I DONT CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE A PART OF THE AMERICAN FASHION INDUSTRY AT ALL - I STARTED IN PARIS AND I STILL SHOW IN PARIS NOW THAT I LIVE IN LOS ANGELES - SO FOR ME IM VERY DISCONNECTED FROM THE AMERICAN FASHION INDUSTRY -
What Mexican designers do you know and which are the ones you like the most?
I LOVE THE WORK OF RAFA AND ROBERTO FOR TE AMO - I THINK THAT THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE WONDERFUL AND HUMORS !
