At the Waldorf

On January 11, 2012, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, a lecture about my work as fashion designer was held by Professor Filip Geerardyn of Ghent University, Belgium, at the National Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association. During his lecture, Geerardyn focused on the psychological aspects of the creation mechanism. More specifically, a lot of attention was paid to the linguistic processes of metonymy and metaphor, which relate my work with that of surrealists like my compatriot René Magritte. The lecture was well received and was followed by a debate.
