Will I grow my own page? Yes.
Raquel Zimmerman by Mario Sorrenti, 2010
It is an honor to own Spirit. Magazines are what I turn to in times of tribute, celebration or memento. And although I would also be honored to own a closet full of McQueens creations, Spirit mirrors my emotions regarding the public life of McQueen I was exposed to these past 14 years. His shows may have stir up commotion, but his clothes inspired stillness, just simply because they took my breath away.
Long. Live. Print.
