Today in Modern

Fashion Designer Anna Sui, born today, Aug. 4 in 1952

There are some people who might look at the designs, patterns and colors that are Anna Sui’s stock and trade and categorize her as more Boho than Modern. I say no, no. The fact that she is totally fearless in mixing it up in color, cut and pattern makes her a total Modernist in my book. What does it matter that her patterns involve designs within that have been used before by those with less imagination? What does it matter that there are those who’ve put us asleep with too much of one pattern in too much of one color?...
