Rick Owens Slaps L.A.

L.A. is great at making sitcoms. So L.A. fashion week is really just another turn on The Hills.

Thank you Mr. Rick Owens

Though he used to be based in LA, he finds designers there "arrogant and demanding."

LA is great at making sitcoms. Paris isn't as good as LA is at making sitcoms; every place has their specialty. And then they do LA Fashion Week, which is incredibly arrogant and demanding. I mean, these editors have been all over the globe for a couple of weeks [for Fashion Month] and then LA is saying 'Okay, now you have to come here.' Please, I mean, get off your ass and go to Europe. I mean, that's what I did and you just have to go where you have to go. They just don't have the tradition, and they do other things really good, so why do they have to be a fashion capital? They're the movie capital of the world and they've always been that, can't they just be satisfied with that?

There's something wrong when even Andre Leon Talley is bored with fashion.
