Lilah Horwitz grew up in Seattle. She went to Parsons in New York but split from the fashion world over its aggressive commercial cycle, which sends the message that you need to buy new clothes every season. Horwitz designs clothes as direct responses to where she's living. She moves around, so sometimes that's West Virginia, sometimes Milwaukee. I'd like to see her do a Seattle series. She thinks of her clothes as the child of art and journalism.
Then there's the house made of windows in the backwoods of West Virginia.
