[Laura] If you call it inspiration,
00:33
there's so many things that we love
00:36
and kind of learned about and are curious about.
00:39
I think that just comes out.
00:41
So mostly I'm inspired by the process.
00:43
I mean, obviously influences come.
00:45
[Samuel] We are pretty much film- inspired,
00:48
Much more than fashion.
00:51
[Louise] What inspires me, it depends on my mood.
00:56
I'm inspired to create new things all the time
00:59
and I'm inspired to create things I'm not sure about.
01:02
[Carlotta] Fashion is not about being intellectual,
01:05
so fashion is about being a visionary.
01:08
[Alexander] I get inspired with my friends,
01:09
hanging out, watching people on the street.
01:11
[Gareth] I have mood boards.
01:12
I never really do any drawings or anything,
01:15
it's sort of like vomiting something up.
01:19
(laughs)
01:20
You know what I mean?
01:21
(Who Knows by Marion Black)
01:28
♫ Who knows what tomorrow will bring
01:32
♫ Maybe sunshine
01:34
♫ Maybe rain
01:36
♫ But as for me
01:37
♫ I'll wait and see
01:40
[Danielle] When you see something
01:40
that's aesthetically pleasing,
01:42
it's like you get such an exciting feeling.
01:44
So to see my dresses on those girls look incredible.
01:48
I mean, you put that all together and then
01:49
Bruce is taking photos.
01:52
So it's really exciting and really cool.
01:54
And to see the three girls in the three dresses,
01:56
and Kate was laid across the other two girls.
01:59
Yeah, really cool.
02:02
[Kate] It's like this trail of energy following him.
02:06
Definitely like in a Fellini movie
02:07
where everyone's in a crowd or something.
02:10
He's such an incredible artist.
02:12
Just the process of being able to take
02:13
an experience like taking a photograph with him.
02:18
[Laura] Yeah, someone like Lara in that gown is amazing.
02:21
The way she would feel playful with it,
02:23
just the personality of the person
02:24
that kind of transforms a piece we've made.
02:28
♫ Another day
02:29
♫ Just another day
02:32
♫ Oh lord
02:35
[Jeremy] Well when I was growing up
02:36
and getting interested in fashion,
02:37
I used to collect Versace catalogs.
02:40
So I've been
02:43
well exposed to Bruce's work.
02:45
Never ever thought, in my life, that I would be
02:46
the guy sitting on the hunks' shoulders.
02:51
It was sort of like I was the nerd
02:52
and they're the jocks, but we're all sort of friends now
02:55
'cause we all graduated from high school or something.
02:58
So now we can be buddies and we're on the dock running.
03:01
(chuckles)
03:05
♫ Another day
03:07
♫ Another day
03:09
♫ Just another day
03:11
♫ I wanna live
03:13
♫ To share the love that only she
03:16
[Alexis] As a big shot we did was in front of the sea.
03:20
Totally naked, we did the transparent
03:22
hoodie in a vintage fabric in dark night blue.
03:27
♫ Another day
03:29
♫ Another day
03:31
♫ Just another day
03:33
♫ Oh lord
03:35
Pretty much don't have a plan.
03:38
We like to grow a little bit and go on like that.
03:42
We'll slowly figure it out.
03:44
Really started with no plan
03:46
or no sort of real business sense.
03:48
[Kate] And knowing that maybe our path
03:50
isn't necessarily the same path
03:52
that someone else might have.
03:54
[Jason] I had to do it, I had to give it a try
03:56
because I think I owe it to myself
03:58
to do it now when I'm young.
04:04
♫ Another day
04:05
[Carlotta] Kate Moss was wearing it like a mermaid.
04:08
A beautiful Chantilly lace dress
04:11
and then she also got a panty with flower
04:14
and she was rocking it in front of the ocean
04:17
with Fellini and kind of Goodfellas people.
04:20
The lingerie is about my mirror personality.
04:23
In my spirit, there is a lot of lap dancing.
04:26
♫ Another day
04:28
♫ Another day
04:30
♫ Just another day
04:32
♫ Oh lord
04:34
♫ For who knows what tomorrow will bring
04:39
♫ Maybe sunshine
04:41
♫ Maybe rain
04:43
♫ But as for me
04:44
♫ I'll wait and see
04:47
[Louise] Since I was a kid,
04:48
I've just had my fantasy of things
04:50
which made me really happy
04:52
to think about things without restrictions
04:54
and to think about things without a commercial value.
04:58
I'd been really fortunate to win scholarships
05:01
and win competitions.
05:03
Suddenly hit the real world and
05:05
I suddenly felt like I was hanging my soul
05:07
in the supermarket or something.
05:09
It's kind of difficult,
05:12
realizing, obviously realizing
05:14
that it's a business but you kind of have to get over it.
