It's not up to us to judge

I've said it but with Karl Lagerfeld saying is just like a reassurance: you have to be interested in what's going on, always be informed. Technology is one thing, high fashion is also one thing. With technology, fashion has become more accessible. People love the trend, it drives the economy. What's intrigues my curiosity is Mr. Ford's sense of privacy of the exclusivity - about how internet eats up images before they can be bought. Onto my harmless question, aren't those factors which stimulate the urges to shop or this subliminal message just indicates that fashion should has a certain level of accessibility?

Some interesting quote from Karl Lagerfeld himself:

Fashion does not have to prove that it is serious. It is the proof that intelligent frivolity can be something creative and positive.
