On critics

Following a session on reflective writing at LCF, I dug deeper into reflection today. I stumbled upon this interview with my favourite Ukrainian fashion critic Zoya Zvinyatskovskaya. Not many people know the personalities of the Ukrainian fashion scene, but locals do know her name very well. 

She once said an interesting thing about fashion critics comparing it to a psycological principle of a cockroach in a clock. The cockroach may know the clock from the inside to the smallest detail but it has no idea what time it is. The people in the fashion industry are in the same position - they may know everythung from the inside but it is the critics' job to tell them the time on the fashion clock. 

An interesting concept, isn't it?
